If that is all you want to know, then the first is wrong, the second is right.

If you want to know**why**the first is wrong and the second right, you will need to tell us**why**you thought they were correct. - Mar 30th 2014, 06:22 AMcanyouhelpRe: Word problem with differential equations?

I must be missing something - the first term is the interest - 0.05B/12 (monthly interest times principal). Mom puts in 240/6 = 40 a month, and Saleem takes out 50 a month, so that gives -10 for the other term. So isn't A correct?
