the increment per month right ??

if the increment per month

$5000+m350=265750$ find m value m represent month numbers

3. no thats not it the answer cannot be 63 years,it's meant to be 10years

4. Can you be a bit CLEARER please;
after 3 years, is it 5000 + (5000+350) + (5000+700) ?

5. guess we saling on the same boat of confusion huh? i got the question from a book,guess there was a mistake
