Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Let the x is  number of week

than Equation of your money after x week = 80+10x 

Equation for Brother's money after  x weeks = 280-15x

B)

 80+10x = 280-15x ;   25x =200    ; x = 200/25 = 8 weeks 

C)    saving in 8 weeks = 8*10 = $80
