Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which person has the correct equation to model this linear relationship? Kerrie’s equation is incorrect, because their spending will increase the amount of their savings. Kerrie’s equation is correct, because their spending will be multiplied by the number of months and then subtracted from their savings. Jacob’s equation is correct, because their spending will be multiplied by the number of months and then subtracted from their savings. Jacob’s equation is incorrect, because their spending should be a fixed amount and should not be multiplied.
