ReplyDeleteAmy : 8 units

Ben is 7 parts

$12 600 divided by $600 will be 21.Then 21 months-14 months91 1/6 year) will be 7 months. So each month Amy saves $12600 divided by 7 months will be $1800 which is equal to 3 units. One unit is $600 and on part will be $600 dived by four whch is 150 dollars. So $600x8=4800????

I think anonymous is correct...
