Question 8.
Amber receives a weekly allowance of $35. How could she budget her allowance among spending, saving, including college, and sharing? Complete the table. Answer:$8.75 for each expense.

Explanation:
I divide $35 with 4 because there are 4 things she needs to save for. After dividing 35/4=$8.75.
For each expense, she could save $8.75 each week. Question 9. Describe the similarities and differences of fixed and variable expenses. Give an example of each type of expense and explain why you think the expense is the type of expense that it is. Answer: Similarities: Classifying costs as either variable or fixed is important for companies because by doing so, companies can assemble a financial statement called the Statement/Schedule of Cost Of Goods manufactured. This is a schedule that is used to calculate the cost of producing the company’s products for a set period of time. The COGM is then transferred to the finished goods inventory account and used in calculating the Cost Of Goods Sold on the income statement. By analyzing variable and fixed cost prices, companies can make better decisions on whether to invest in Property, Plant, and Equipment. For example, if a company incurs high direct labour costs in manufacturing their products, they may look to invest in machinery, which will reduce these high variable costs in exchange for more stable and known fixed costs. This decision should be made with volume capacity and volatility in mind as trade-offs occur at different levels of production. High volumes with low volatility favour machine investment, while low volumes and high volatility favour the use of variable labour costs. Differences: Fixed expense example: Rent or mortgage payments: These payments cannot change up to a certain time. If you pay for a gym membership or streaming services, for example, those costs might stay the same month to month. Variable expenses examples: Some variable expenses may not be recurring. For example, you may take vacations or trips two to three times a year. The amount you spend each time may vary, but you’re not paying for those expenses monthly. Gas, health care expenses, clothing, etc are under variable expenses. Question 10. Explain why you pay back more than you borrow when you make a loan from a financial institution. Answer: Interest is the fee charged for the use of borrowed money. We have to pay interest for every$100 borrowed. That’s why we are paying back more.
For example, I have borrowed $500 from the bank as a loan with the interest of$5 for every $100 then I have to pay$525 to the bank.
Question 11.
What are some advantages and disadvantages of saving your money in a bank rather than at home in a piggy bank?
1. Convenience: Saving your money in the bank is probably the easiest way to secure funds and contribute to your savings. The entire process is user-friendly and it’s very convenient to access your money.
2. Safety: There’s no denying that banks serve as one of the safest ways to protect your hard-earned money and profits. Suppose you invest a large sum of money in the stock market. The fear of losing that money is a reality, however the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward, as they say. With a savings account, your money is untouched and can even make money depending on the interest rate. Right now, it’s not going to be a lot as interest rates are super low.
1. Low Returns: your money that’s sitting in a savings account will earn interest. While it’s safer, there are better ways to grow your money, such as mutual funds. Due to COVID, interest rates have dropped to an all-time low, which is helpful if you’re buying a house or owe money. Not so much if you’re trying to make money.
2. Convenient to Spend: The convenience that was an advantage can also be looked at as a disadvantage. Easy access means a temptation to spend instead of saving. Part of financial health is knowing your limits and following the rules. It’s not worth it to take money out of your savings account unless you absolutely must.
