You have decided to move 300km away from your current residence. The truck costs $40 per day and $0.12 per kilometre. If it will take you 2 days to return the truck, how much will the round trip cost you? (Assume that tax is included.)

I assume that you'll return the truck near your new home.
(40 * 2) + (0.12 * 300) = ?
I'll be glad to check your answer.

40 x 2 = 80
0.12x300=36
80+36=116
so for two ways would it be
40x2=80
0.12x600= 72
80+72=152.
is that how much the round trip would cost me ?
