A student at St. F. X. decided to become his own employer by using his car as a taxi for the summer. It costs the student $693.00 to insure his car for the 4 months of summer. He spends $452.00 per month on gas. If he lives at home and has no other expenses for the 4 months of summer and charges an average of $7.00 per fare, how many fares will he have to get to be able to pay his tuition of $3280.00?
$3280.00 + ($452)4 + $693.00 = $5781.00
$5781.00/$7.00 = 825.85
I rounded my answer to 826.
Is this correct?
