Algebra homework help

Joe runs 7 miles per week and runs a mile each week after the first. Alex runs 4 miles per week and 2 miles every week after the first. In how many weeks will both be running the same distance, and what will that distance be? 

Nestor R.

Joe runs 7 miles/week and 1 mile each week after? Does that mean 1 extra mile/week?
