Jane and Arthur each have $10 in the bank. Every month Jane plans to add $1 to her account.Arthur plans to add $3 to his account every month

If they each start with $10, when will Arthur have three times as much as Jane?

Just make a number table starting at 10, then 13, 16, 19, 22, 25, 28, 31 etc
then 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 ,15 etc. till one is 3 times as much as the other. Im sure there are easier ways to figure it but this one is fool proof.
