**rawr... im a dinosaur.... rawr**, Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 5:17pmWhat about this one?

A new house costs $160,000.00. Sara wants to buy the house and needs $1,534.00 for a down payment. If Sara currently has $1,300.00 in a savings account paying simple interest at a rate of 3%, how long must she keep the money in the savings account in order to have enough for the down payment on the house?

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 5:28pm1,534 - 1,300 = $234 she needs

1,300 * 0.03 = 39

234 / 39 = 6 years
