    The answer would be A. If you plug in the numbers to this equation:

    800=50x+B and 950=75x+B, where B is the amount you started and X is the number of weeks you saved your money, you would get that the number of weeks you saved your money is 6 and the amount you started out with is $500

    75(6)+500=950

    50(6)+500=800

    Hope this helped <3
