Read - Omit

Marco wants to purchase a special skateboard for $480. He has $226 saved for the skateboard. He mows yards for eight months each year (April – November). His savings increased to $285 in April, $311 in May, and $337 in June. If this pattern continues, in what month will he have enough to purchase his skateboard?


To solve this problem, I will determine the pattern that is described. With the increase that I find that has occurred for April, May, and June, I will continue the table for the months thru November or I might have to continue to the following year beginning in April. Whenever I reach at least the needed amount of $480 that will be the month in which Marco can purchase the skateboard.


$311 May $337 June

-285 April -311 May

$ 26 difference $ 26 difference

The pattern of increase is $26 per month

$337 June $363 July $389 August

+ 26 amount of increase + 26 + 26

$363 July $389 August $415 September

$415 Sept. $441 Oct $467 Nov

+ 26+ 26+ 26

$441 October $467 Nov $493 April of next year

he can make purchase


Marco will have $493 in April of the following year, if the $26 per month increase continues. This is slightly more that the $480 that he actually needs to purchase the skateboard.
