Jerod earns $2 per delivery, and Henry earns$3 per delivery. To find out how many deliveries they must both make to have the same amount of money, we need to set up an equation. Let (x) be the number of deliveries they both make. Jerod will have (5 + 2x) dollars, and Henry will have (3x) dollars. Setting these two expressions equal to each other gives:

[5 + 2x = 3x]

Solving for (x):

[5 = 3x - 2x] [5 = x]

Therefore, they both must make 5 deliveries to have the same amount of money.
