    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:
    Will save 85 dollars after the seventh month. Thanks.
