suppose your local electric company charges $0.0650/kWxh for the first 200.0 kWxh, and then drastically raises the price for every kilowatthour more. What is the maximum you family would pay if they wanted to pay only the cheaper rate?

200 kWh multiplied but the lower rate, 0.065 $/kWh.
The answer will be in dollars. Although the problem does not say so, these are probably monthly billings.
