50 plus 5 times 7

I you add 5 extra dollars each month for 7 months that would be $35 extra.

Also, watch your order of operations. Bob showed you 50 plus 5 x time.

You always do the multiplication first then the addition.

Oh! So it'll be:

5*7=35

35+50=85

Will save 85 dollars after the seventh month. Thanks.
