Number Three

Question # 3: Answer the questions below based upon this information.

Kathy has $20 in her savings account. Each month she adds another $15 to her savings account. In order to calculate how much money she will have in one year Kathy has created the algebraic formula: 20 + 15n= savings amount

A) Calculate how much money Kathy will have in one year.


B) Suppose Kathy counted wrong and she really has $25 in her account instead of $20. Change the algebraic formula to reflect this miscalculation.

20+25n=total savings

great T-Chart.

What does "m" stand for in 1b?

Great use of colour!!!

How did you determine your answers in 2a and 2b? Plus I think you might have a mistake.

You have a problem with 3b
