**11. **A student banks $200 when she starts secondary College in
Grade 7. In Grade 8 she banks $250,$300 in Grade 9, and so on. She is at school
for 6 years.

a) Determine a formula relating the amount deposited during a year (200,250,...) to how many years they have been saving(1,2,...).

Because the deposits are increasing, the formula for the bank balance is more complex and is not a linear relationship. Answer the following using a table.

b) What is the total amount she has banked by the time she finishes after 6 years?
