(b) what is the fare for a didtance of 10 3/4 mi? My answer...\$30.25
(c)what is the possible distance a customer can travel with \$67.20? express the answer to 1 decimal place. i don't know how to do this.

• math -

(a) is 2.95 (first 1/4 mile) + 1.5 miles x2.60 (\$/mile) = \$6.85
(Same charge as as 1 3/4 miles)

(b) is correct

(c) After the first quarter mile, you have \$64.25 left to travel at a rate of \$2.60 per mile. That will take you an additional 24.5 miles, for a total of 24.75 miles. Total charge: \$66.65 The next jump in the meter would take you to \$67.30, so you have to stop at 24.75 miles.
