Q: Calculating the Amount for an Emergency Fund. Beth and Bob Martin have a total take-home pay of $3,600 a month. Their monthly expenses total $3,100. Calculate the amount the couple needs to establish

an emergency fund (assume a 3 month emergency fund). How did you calculate this amount?

A: Financial planners typically recommend creating an emergency fund equal to three to six months of living expenses. So Beth and Bob will need $3100(living expenses) times three(min)= $9300 and $3100 times six= $18, 600.
