I can form so many versions with 'Let's say', how do I know what is correct and what is not?

Are these correct? What do they mean?

1. Let's say I

2. Let's say I

3. Let's say I

4. Let's say I

For the sentences above, how do I know if I should use 'have' or 'had'? What do they mean when it is 'have' and when it is 'had' ? Also, should I use 'would' or will' ? How do I know which one I should use? What does it mean when it is 'would' and when it is 'will'?

5. Let's say I

6. Let's say I

Do I use 'would' or 'will' for #5 and #6? What do they mean when it is 'will' and when it is 'would' ? Also, I have 'have had' here, how does that compared to #1 and #3 in terms of meaning? How do I know which one to use? 'Have had' Or Just 'Have' or ' Had' ?

7. Let's say I

8. Let's say I

Do you guys have some webpages where I can read about this?

Thank you very much.

maverick88By the way, I don't think sentences 1,2,3,4 are correct, because you want "have had" after "for"

I haven't read the post quite attentively yet, so I'll get back to you in a few minutes.

pieanneIn both cases you want "have had"

Then I'd say either" could I get" or "will I be able to get"/"can I"

And I'd change the comma into a semi-colon or a period.

"Let's say I've had this car for 4 years now; could I get 40% discount on it?"

But anyway, what exactly do you mean? I can't imagine any situation when you would say this...

pieanneSorry for the lack of information. I meant insurance.

Are these correct? What do they mean?

1. Let's say he

findsthe key to his car;wouldwe able to go to the beach?2. Let's say he

findsthe key to his car;willwe able to go to the beach?This sounds odd with 'found'? How come?

3. Let's say he

foundthe key to his car;wouldwe able to go to the beach?4. Let's say he

foundthe key to his car;willwe able to go to the beach?What does the questions above mean when I use 'would' and when I use 'will' ?

For these questions below, what do they mean when I use 'bought' vesus 'buy'? And what do they mean when I use 'would' versus 'will' ?

5. Let's say I

boughtanother car for $30, 000;wouldthat affect my insurance significantly?6. Let's say I

boughtanother car for $30, 000;willthat affect my insurance significantly?7. Let's say I

buyanother car for $30, 000;wouldthat affect my insurance significantly?8. Let's say I

buyanother car for $30, 000;willthat affect my insurance significantly?Thanks.

jack112pieanneI mean 'finds' . Do we have enough time to go to the beach when he finds his key to the car?

If you get this now, could you help me out with my post above?

Thanks.

jack112The point is, with "let's say", the sentence doesn't mean anything!

Here you need "if", and then it makes sense:

if he finds his car keys, will we have the time etc...

"let's say" is "for example"

Maybe you want to review your sentences?

pieanne1. Let's say you are in a van and you run outside quickly to pick up something thinking that your buddy

wouldhave the key to the car. So you just leave it in the van and run out quickly. At the same time your buddy needs to get something too, so he runs out swiftly leaving the key in the van thinking that youwouldhave the key. (I used 'would' here, what does it mean compared to #2?)2. Let's say you are in a van and you run outside quickly to pick up something thinking that your buddy
