Question Description

I’m studying for my Algebra class and need an explanation.

Yesterday, two friends went into a bank to open savings accounts. Trent started by putting $7 in his account, and he will deposit an additional $404 each week. Owen made no initial deposit, but he will add $405 more each week. In a few weeks, the friends will have the same account balance. What is that account balance? How many weeks will that take?
