Easiest way to solve it is to begin by writing an equation where they are equal. So... 1642 + .08x = 1900 + .065x Now, here's the thing. We're not looking to see what is equal. We are lookung to see when the first option is GREATER than the 2nd option. So we can say ...

There are a few different models. A common one is that there is an introduction or exposition, an event, rising action, a turning point, a climax, and a conclusion that resolves the problem. A good description to help you out is here: http://english.learnhub.com/lesson/4579-...

As a side note, I think the reason this is often a mistake has to do with how we think about what we are saying. People think the subject is "here." With most of our sentences, we simply have the subject-verb-object model. That is incorrect in this case.
