Upon completion of his degree, Michael is hired as a technician at the rate of $900 every two weeks (after taxes). His monthly bills, payable on the first of the month, are:

Rent $500

Electricity 80

Gas (heat) 65

Car payment 300

Car insurance 70

Fuel for car 80

Groceries 150

Credit cards 200

Given Michael’s current expenses, how much money is available weekly for leisure spending?

Instead of spending his additional earnings each month, Michael chooses to open a savings account offering 3% interest, accrued monthly. Calculate the amount of money Michael will have in his savings account at the end of each of the following periods.

(b) six months

(c) one year

The answer I got was $116.54 weekly. If you divide his bi-weekly in half and multiply by 52 (weeks in a year), then divide by 12 (months).
