My goal is to save $12.

If I save $1 a month then it will take me 12 months to save $12.

If I save $2 a month then it will take me 6 months to save $12.

If I saved $1.50 each month, how many months would it take me to save $12?

Thank you Bumy for your submission!

These are supposed to be riddles, so the accurate answer of 8 months might be totally off the wall. But here it is anyway

I’m going to propose that the first statement is mistyped. Try it like this:

“My goal is to save 12 dollars.”

The answer would then be 12 months because then you would have 12 one dollar BILLS and 6 dollars in COINAGE.
