Now let’s assume that 10 years from now you have a family and two children. You have a good job and are earning $30,000 a year. Your company has a $25,000 group life insurance policy for all employees. Most experts say you need to have 7 times your salary in life insurance. How much more life insurance do you need?

30,000 * 7 = ?

Subtract 25,000 from the above product to find how much more insurance you need.

30,000*7=21,0000 21,0000-25,000=185000

This part is right.

30,000*7=210,000

This part is wrong.

210,000 - 25,000 = ?

I'm sorry. Both of your answers are correct.

210,000 - 25,000 = 185,000
