E.

let Sv = amount saved, Sp = amount spent this year and I be income

for this year I = Sv + Sp .....(1)

For next year he will have Sv(1+r) dollars to spend and this should equal Sp/2

Sv (1+r) = Sp /2 i.e Sp = Sv (2 + 2r)

substituting this in (1) above,

I = Sv + Sv(2+2r) = Sv ( 3 + 2r) i.e Sv = I * (1/3+2r)
