After one month at a new job you decide to save \$50. Each month you plan to increase your savings by five dollars.

a.)Write an explicit formula to model the amount you will save each month.

b.)How much will you save in the seventh month?

savings=50+5*time

355

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.
