This assumes that I spend$4 per day initially, and then by 01/05/2009 spend \$2 per day. Now, if I would like to show what my monthly reduction must be, for January for example, what is my start value, is it (31 x 4 = 124) ?? and is my monthly reduction then (31 x 0.004 = 0.124) so that at the start of January my value is 124 and at the end of January is (124 - 0.124) = 123.876 ?? Similarly, what would my Quarterly start and end value be and the gradient of this line if I were to plot this daily reduction whilst altering the way that I divide my time view? Any help would be greatly appreciated, Many thanks Alex

Other definitions are possible. I don't understand the phrase "whilst altering the way that I divide my time view".
