ok no problem lets work it out a little you know that you trip is 5 miles and the first 1/2 mile costs different for the rest which is (5 - 1/2)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the first 1/2 mile costs 2.50 then you need to add the cost of the rest of the trip
anonymous
  • anonymous
How do you fiqure out how much the rest of the trip costs?
anonymous
  • anonymous
By multiplying the 4.5 by $0.25
anonymous
  • anonymous
nope
anonymous
  • anonymous
you COULD do that but .25 isnt the cost per mile. What is the cost per mile?
anonymous
  • anonymous
.25 cents for every 1/4 mile after the first 1/2 mile
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes for every 1/4 mile. How much does it cost to go a whole mile?
anonymous
  • anonymous
$1
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes so now you can fiqure out how much it costs to go 4.5 miles
anonymous
  • anonymous
then add that cost with 4.50 and your done!
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok, thanks
anonymous
  • anonymous
useless math does a variation where he finds how many 1/4 miles are in 4.5 miles. You should look at his answer too!
