I keep getting the question wrong every time I do it, maybe it doesn't mean anything special?

according to that definition .... the definition associated with your own material may differ ... the smallest debt gets a little more money

I'm still confused, but I understand that definition :/

the smallest debt is paid off first; by adding an extra "M" amount to it

$3,452 21.4% $138.08 $2,516 131 $3,046 20.6% $121.84 $2,022 122 <-- smallest balance gets +M added $3,526 17.5% $141.04 $1,819 117 $3,985

Oh alright, so that answer would be Furniture Warehouse Card

without knowing what amount M is added, then there is no way of knowing which one is actually the highest payment .... M would have to be greater then the difference of the bigest and smallest payments
