Lucy! You got some splainin' to do!

The simulator says if I pay down x amount for every month for 1 month my score will be 724-764.

The simulator also says if I pay the same x amount of my total revolving/open account balance (the other option) that my score will be 684-724.  What gives? The simulator indicates the reason for the increase (both) are identical.  By the way, I already paid x amount last month so I'm just waiting to see which is going to be closer.
