A taxi company charged $4.40 for a 2 mile trip. It charges certain amount for each 1/5 mile traveled. It charges twice as much for the first 1/5 mile. How muchis charged for the first 1/5 mile and each 1/5 mile after the first one?

  • Math -

    2m1/(1/5) = 10 one-fifth Miles.

    $X for each of the last nine 1/5 miles.
    = $9x

    $2x for the 1st one-fifth mile.

    2x + 9x = $4.40
    11x = 4.40
    X = $0.40 For each one-fifth mile after
    the 1st.
    2X = $0.80 for the 1st one-fifth mile.
