Consumer Math in Buying a Vehicle

Outline the process of planning a trip and identify at least 3 ways math is important during that process.

Explain why math is important in this case and illustrate your point by using math in some examples (e.g., “If I would like to put at least 35% down on a new car that costs $X, then I know I should save at least $Y.”) Why does budget play a critical role in this situation? What operations do you need in choosing the optimal flight?
