1. You are debating about whether to buy a new computer for $800.00 or a refurbished computer with the same equipment for $640.00. If a savings account earns 4.5% APR interest, how much do you really save with a refurbished computer if you put the difference into the savings account for a year? (and what are the steps to finding the answer?)

2. You are still debating about the two different computers. If you are paid $10.00/hour and your deductions are FICA (7.65%), federal tax withholding (12%), and state tax withholding (8%), how many hours do you have to work to pay for the new computer? (Include steps)
