She had \$250 eight weeks ago. After withdrawing \$10, her current balance is \$400. How much was she saving weekly? : Let x = amt saved weekly : An equation: amt saved in 8 wks + initial amt - withdrawal = 400 8x + 250 - 10 = 400 : 8x + 240 = 400 : 8x = 400 - 240 : 8x = 160 x = x = \$20 per week saved : : Check 8(20) + 250 -10 = 160 + 250 - 10 = 400
