How much money has Jessica saved after 12 weeks? $1,000 $1,800 (i think its this one) $2,800 $3,000

    Well, the function you are given: f(x) gives you the total money saved after x number of weeks right?

    Evaluate the expression: \[f(12) = $1000 + $150(12)\]

    \[1000 + 150 \times 12 = 1000 + 1800 = 2800\]
