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.)

  • math -

    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.

  • Math Grade 12 -

    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 ?
