**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, November 25, 2008 at 8:01pmYou need to earn half of $128 a year. So, you'll need to earn $64 a year.

Let x = the amount of money he should deposit. The account earns 1.6% or 0.016.

Using simple algebra, I set up the equation and solved for x.

0.016x = 64

0.016x/0.016 = 64/0.016

x = $4,000

Does that help?
