a)What is the fine for traveling at 55 mph?

b)If the fine is $126, what is the speed of the car?

c)If car A travels at 60 mph and car B travels at 90 mph, then car B is traveling 50% faster than car A. However the fine for car B is what percent higher than that of car A?

**Reiny**, Sunday, December 30, 2012 at 11:25pmI disagree with your b) answer of 102

3(x-50) + 30 = 126

3(x-50) = 96

x-50 = 32

x = 32+50 = 82 mph

c) fine for A is 3(60-50) + 30 = $60

fine for B is 3(90-50) + 30 = $150

increase in speed = 30 mph

increase in fine = 150-60 = $90

percentage increase = 90/60 = 1.5 or 150% increase in the fine.
