Larry saves x dollars per month. Will Larry’s total savings one year from now exceed his present savings by at least $500 ? (Assume that there is no interest.) (1) In 6 months Larry's total savings will be$900.
(2) In 3 months Larry's total savings will exceed his present savings by $150. DS21223 (1) In six months, Larry's total savings will be$900. We don't know what his current savings are. It could be that his current savings are $888; therefore he only exceeds his present savings by$12. Or it could be that his current savings are $300 and he saves$100 each month for the next 6 months. INSUFFICIENT.

(2) In 3 months his savings will increase by $150, meaning each month he saves$50. We can conclude that his total savings for the year will exceed his present savings by \$600. SUFFICIENT.
