**Answer:**

**It will take 2 hours for Jordan and Jake to earn the same amount of money**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Jordan earns $9 per hour

Let he worked for x hours

So, he earned in x hours = 9x

Jordan also gets a $10 weekly allowance.

**So, his total earning in x hours = 10+9x**

Jake earns $6.50 per hour at his job.

Let he worked for x hours

So, he earned in x hours = 6.50x

Jake also gets a $15 weekly allowance.

**So, his total earning in x hours = 15+6.50x**

**Now to know How many hours will it take for Jordan and Jake to earn the same amount of money**

[tex]x=2/tex]

**Hence it will take 2 hours for Jordan and Jake to earn the same amount of money**
