Suppose it takes x number of months for them to pay the same amount.

Then, Meredith pays a total of (1500 + 375x) and Chloe pays a total of (2500 + 325x)

We need to have,

1500 + 375x = 2500 + 325x

(375x - 325x) = 2500 - 1500

50x = 1000

x = 1000/50

x = 20

So, it would take 20 months until Meredith and Chloe have paid the same amount.
