Marvin's Taxi Service charges $0.30 for the first kilometre and $0.05 for each additional km. If the cab fare was $3.20, how far did the Taxi go?

Cost of first kilometer = $0.30

Total cost of additional kilometers = (3.20 - 0.30)= 2.90

Total number of kilometers = 1 +($2.90/$0.05)

= 1 + 58

59 km?
