1 Answer

  • We calculate the total amount that needs to be paid by multiplying the amount per month and the total number of months.

    Plan A: Total amount  = ($110.42/month)(24 months)  = $2650.08
    Plan B: Total amount = ($85.47/month)(36 months) = $3076.92

    Thus, Linda will pay a lesser amount for Plan A. Also, the amount that can be saved is $426.84.
