okay dumbass let me change the example totally randomly :

day 1 : 00 - 100

day 2 : 00 - 100

day 3 : 10 - 90

day 4 : 00 - 90

day 5 : 90 - 00

total : 100 - 380

WOW MIND BLOWN

The "saved" amount is meaningless, and isn't tied to the amount given at the start.

If you spend a dollar a day for 100 days, at the end you would have spent $100, but the amount saved according to this method would be $5000

This thing is flawed in so many ways. First of all, you aren't "saving" any money in this just because you didn't spend it all in one day.

Saged and /thread

the saved amount is meaningless

Are you fucking dumb?

have 10 bucks

spend 0 and save 10 on first day

spend 10 and save 0 on second day

Spent (0+10) = Saved (10+0)

No matter what you do, the saved amount should always equal the amount spent

you're stupid

have 20

spend 5 save 15

spend 5 save 10

spend 5 save 5

spend 5 save 0

spent 20, yet saved a total of 30

a=b

a^2=ab

a^2+a^2=a^2+ab

2a^2=a^2+ab

2a^2-2ab=a^2+ab-2ab

2a^2-2ab=a^2-ab

2(a^2-ab)=1(a^2-ab)

2=1

Each time you use money you deduct from the WHOLE value. Every time that the WHOLE gets deducted from that value is now considered the WHOLE value. So anything that happened before the new WHOLE value is irrelevent because it was deducted off of an entirely different sum. Budgeting is not a generating idea it is a one shot repitive idea. These savings dont stack. If user would have stopped spending after his initial purchase he would have saved $60 dollars but he was a greedy bastard and ended up not saving any.

Your logic error is that you divide by zero to go from the second to last to the last line.

Doesn't matter if you do that to cancel the zeros on each side, you're not allowed to divide by zero.

Try it again with different numbers:

Day 1: spent $1, saved $99.

Day 2: spent $1, saved $98.

Day 3: spent $1, saved $97.

...

etc., spending $1 every day

...

Day 100: spent $1, saved $0.

Total: spent $100, saved $4950.

Get it now?

It's because the "saved" column is tracking individual days, not progress so far.

For instance, day 1 and day 2's spending add up to 70 yet day 1 and 2's "saved" somehow "add up" to 90. It's obviously bullshit.

Two different methods of counting merged together.

How funny that you're questioning someone else's intelligence.

Spent Saved

50 50

50 0

Total: 100, 50

zomg!

have 100

Spent 0, saved 100

Spent 0, saved 100

Spent 0, saved 100

Spent 0, saved 100

Spent 0, saved 100

Saved: 500
