    From the problem we know that Hanna saves one-half of her paycheck each week, so she saves ( \frac{1}{2})(160)= \frac{160}{2} =80. Also, we know that her parents put $50 in her savings account each week, so the total amount she and her parents put in her saving’s account is 80+50=130.
    Since we know that Hanna currently has $1,280 in her saving’s account and each week she and her parents deposit $130 to the account, with n representing the number of weeks, we can model the situation as follows:
    f(n)=1280+130n

    1,280 + 80n + 50n

    1280 + 130n
