A taxi ride cost $2.50 for the 1/2 mile, and $0.25 for every 1/4 mile after that. How much will a 5 mile trip cost?

    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)

    so the first 1/2 mile costs 2.50 then you need to add the cost of the rest of the trip

    you COULD do that but .25 isnt the cost per mile. What is the cost per mile?

    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!
