The Greens want to put an addition on their house 18 months from now. They will need to save $10,620 in order to achieve this goal. They set aside the same amount each month, and after a year discover they have saved $6,120. The Greens must adjust their plan in order to meet their goal, so they came up with the following options: Option A: Stay with saving the original amount each month but put the addition on one month later than originally planned. Option B: Increase the amount of money they save each month by $120 from their original plan. Which of the following statements is true? a. Only option A will allow them to meet their goal. b. Only option B will allow them to meet their goal. c. Both options A and B will allow them to meet their goal. d. Neither option A nor option B will allow them to meet their goal.
The answer is D because the additional 120 for the remaining six months only brings them to 9900. An additional month brings them to a total of 9690.
