1- Explore the different accounts offered by three financial institutions: checking accounts, savings accounts and credit cards.

A student attending College Full-time who works part-time. This student cannot get direct deposit in his account and his average balance per month is $100.
A single parent caring for a child going part-time to college and working full-time. This parent is able to get direct deposit. The average balance of the account would be $300.
A retired couple moving to Boston from California. They’re looking to start a new banking relationship. They have a total of $100,000 in their retirement account. Their average monthly balance is $1500.00 and they get social security checks direct deposited in their accounts.
