How much are you really saving to be there for that sale? This is a true situation at our house. My wife drives a Dodge Ram, it gets 12 mpg (miles per gallon). Gas in our area is $2.45 per gallon. The mall is 18 miles each away. If she cuts back and only goes to the mall once a week, instead of twice a week, how much would she save in one year?

Scott, I have an offer to write a check in any amount at 1.99% APR with a 3% fee of the check. I would like to make a transfer to a credit card for $3,400.00 on which I am now paying 11.24% interest. I’m currently paying $100.00 per month toward this debt. After adding the 3% fee, how much I will save by doing this? I would appreciate any help or insight to my question. Thank you. Sandra

One account is compound daily meaning that interest is paid daily to the account. The other is compounded monthly meaning that interest is paid monthly. After one year, how much more is earned by depositing the money in the account that is compounded daily?

Household Math™: Before the tip Household Math™: Before the tip
by Scott Bilker
Rachel was telling Jack about her romantic date with Dave. Jack is a man that is more concerned with the cost of the frolic then the details of their amorous evening. Jack asked Rachel how much the tab was for food only. Rachel was too focused on Dave to remember the amount for the actual dinners, but she did remember tipping the waiter 16% and that the final bill, tip included, was $159.50. Jack was quite amazed that Rachel would remember so much, but not recall the cost of the dinner before the tip. Of course, Jack knows his math and can easily figure it out. Can you? What is the cost of the dinner before the tip?
