    Answer:

    (a)€2048

    (b)€4095

    Step-by-step explanation:

    So the amount of money we would save at nth month is

    2^{n-1} where n = 1, 2, 3, 4, …

    At the 12th month, meaning n = 12, we would save

    2^{12-1} = €2048 for that month

    The total amount we would save in a year is

    1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 + … + 2048

    2^{n} - 1 = 2^{12} - 1 = €4095
