Every month, Zulari is paid $2000 by direct
deposit to his savings account, and his
employer makes a contribution of $200 to
Zulari’s retirement account. He then moves
some money from his savings account into his
checking account to pay his rent ($800) and

Zulari moves some of the remaining money
from his savings account to his retirement
account. The rest he keeps in his savings
account which has an interest rate of 1.5%.
