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?
