1. Answer: she needs to save \$6510

Step-by-step explanation:

In the first year, she expects her total cost to be \$9,850. Wei has already saved \$1,220 for college. This means that the remaining amount that she needs would be

9850 – 1220 = \$8630

she expects to receive grants and scholarships that total \$2,120. Therefore, the amount of money that she should save to be able to pay for her first year of college would be 8630 – 2120 = \$6510

Step-by-step explanation:

Total expected cost = \$9,850,

Total grants expected = \$2,120

Savings.                     =\$1,220

Total expected cost – Total grant + Savings

\$,9850 – \$2,120 + \$1,220

\$9,850 – \$3,340

First year expected tuition = \$6,510
