Hi there,

Ok, first let's figure out the difference between the 2 boy's starting amounts: 2371 - 628 = \$1743

So with Leon saving \$28 and Wayne saving \$7 but having a head start, how many months will it take Leon to catch up to Wayne.

The difference between the savings amounts is: 28 - 7 = \$21.

To find how many months it will take Leon to catch up to Wayne, we take the initial difference in total amounts (\$1743) and divide by how much extra Leon saves every month (\$21):
1743 / 21 = 83

So it will take Leon 83 months to catch up to the amount of money Wayne has.
