 Question 565302: I need help with a word problem, I have a way to find the solution but it is not the way we were instructed.Below, is a copy of the word problem. You plant a 14 inch hemlock tree that grows at a rate of 4 inches per year.You also plant a 8 inch spruce that grows at a rate of 6 inches per year.In how many years will both trees be the same height, and how tall will they be. I am not requesting the answer, I just need a linear system to solve. The way I found how to solve but isn't the way instructed is: 14+4x=y 8+6x=y I would have to do that equation over and over again to find the correct answer. My teacher would be displeased if I had not used the way instructed.I struggle with word problems and I am going to stay after school to get help.
