Ben saved 3/4 as much each month as he saved the month before and he saved $45 in March, how much did he save the January before? I thought it would be $30 in February and $10 in January, is this correct? 12/2/2013 | L from Ladysmith, WI | 1 Answer | 0 Votes Mark favorite Subscribe Comment
Let x be the amount saved in the January. x(3/4)^2 = 45 x = $80 <==Answer ------ Attn: Each month Ben saved less than the previous month he did. In Februray, he saved 80(3/4) = $60, and in March he saved 60(3/4) = $45. 12/2/2013 | Robert J. Best answer Comment
