Accepted Solution

A:

First thing to remember is that they were currently in week 0, when they began saving:The equation for Alex would look like: y=20x + 125

See that we are on week 0, and x is our weeks, and the equation would look like: y=20(0) + 125

Simplifying the equation, it will give us which it is y = 125

That means that the first one is E. 125

For the second, it shows our week 0, which is at 100.

That means that the second one is I. 100
