# Savings account II

**This task is about using an equation to calculate the amount of money in a bank account.**

Hayley's Papa said "Here is $20 to open a savings account. For every one dollar you put into your account I will give you another 50 cents to put in."

The total amount in Hayley's account can be written as the equation:

**T = 20 + 1.5 m**

where

*T*= total amount in Hayley's savings account ($)

*m*= amount Hayley puts in ($)
