ROPES EXAMPLE

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?

Plan

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.

Evaluate

\$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

Solution

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.
