our budget compliance over the course of a 12 month period.

our budget compliance over the course of a 12 month period. Although it is possible (and common) to track budget compliance on a month to month basis, to keep things simple for this exercise we are going to only examine the year end result. Determine the yearly values and enter them into your budget. Don't forget to add the totals, and to determine the amount you are short/extra.

Salary = $4,000 a month

Rent = $1200 a month

Car payment = $650 a month

Phone = $95 a month

Health Insurance = $250 a month

Food = $500 a month

Given :
