Profile: John John is a 35 year old, divorced man with one child (who lives with his mom). His take home pay is $4123 per month. He pays $1200 per month in child support to his ex-wife. He owns a 2-storey home and his monthly mortgage payments are $475 every 2 weeks. His car expenses total $145 monthly and his car insurance costs him $113 every month. His house insurance is $47.36 monthly. John also has an outstanding credit line of $8500. The only amount due on this account is the interest of about $55 monthly. However John is trying to pay off the credit line within the next 2 years, so he pays off as much of this loan as he can afford each month.
1.Use one highlighter to identify all sources of income. Total the income for each month.
2.Use a different highlighter to identify all sources of expense. Total the expenses for each month.
3. Subtract the Total Expenses from the Total Income for each
month. A Surplus is when your Income minus Expenses = a positive number.
A Shortage is when your Income minus Expenses = a negative number. Does he have a surplus or a shortage?
