B) $20 down with equal payments of $10 for 12 weeks = 20 + 10 *12 = $140;
C) $0 down with equal payments of $15 for 9 weeks = 15*9 =$135.
D) $5 down with equal payments of $10 for 15 weeks = 5 + 10*15 = $155
A) $10 down with equal payments of $5 for 24 weeks = 10 +(24*5) = 120+10 =$130 . So, OPTION A is a better purchase for microwave

Eliza Savage received a statement from her bank showing a checking account balance of $324.18 as of January 18. Her own checkbook shows a balance of $487.38 as of January 29. The bank returned all of the cancelled checks but three. The amounts of these three checks are $15.00, $77.49, and $124.28. How much did Eliza deposit in her account between January 18 and January 29? A. $379.97 B. $197.24 C. $201.12 D. $54.44
Weegy: Since she did not get those checks back yet, [ we should subtract them from her account because the bank eventually will when they are processed. 15 +77.49 + 124.28 =216.77 - total of the checks not yet processed. $324.18 - 216.77 =$107.41 which would be her balance once the three checks are processed. However, she reports that she has $487.38 so the difference is what she deposited. $487.38 - 107.41 = $379.97 ] (More)
