Mrs. Diaz wishes to save at least \$1500 in 12 months. If she save \$300 during the first 4 months, what is the least possible average amount that she must save in each of the remaining 8 months?

After 4 months, 4 x 300 = \$1200 will be saved. That leaves \$300 to go in 8 months. What would that be per month, in equal payments?
