    05.05)Jacob and Kerrie are trying to figure out how long they can live off their $84,670 savings if they spend $370 each month. They have each created an equation. Jacob’s Equation Kerrie’s Equation y = 84,670 + (370x) y = 84,670 − (370x) Which 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.

    When you are spending money, eventually you are subtracting.

    You start from your base money $84,670 and then subtract it by the amount ($370) that they wish to spend each month (x).

    Choice C says that this equation (shown below) has 370x being subtracted from the base amount. Would you agree? y = 84,670 + (370x)
