A tree is 78 feet tall and grows 7 feet per year. A second tree is 111 feet tall and grows 4 feet per year.

In how many years will the trees be the same height?

X = number of years
78 + 7x = 111 + 4x
-78 from both sides
7x = 33 + 4x
Subtract 4x from both sides
3x = 33
Divid both sides by 3
X= 11
In 11 years both trees will be the same height.
