Not getting it
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
How do you fiqure out how much the rest of the trip costs?
By multiplying the 4.5 by $0.25
you COULD do that but .25 isnt the cost per mile. What is the cost per mile?
.25 cents for every 1/4 mile after the first 1/2 mile
yes for every 1/4 mile. How much does it cost to go a whole mile?
yes so now you can fiqure out how much it costs to go 4.5 miles
then add that cost with 4.50 and your done!
ok, thanks
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!
