## Tahmina 2 years ago one hundred twenty five thousand people have to take an additional road test at least once. If you got your licence the first time you repeated the road test, what would you have paid in total? what was the number of road test taken?

1. mathmate

Question seems incomplete or inaccurate.

2. Tahmina

wait al give you all the information

3. hba

1,25,000 that's the figure.

4. Tahmina

that 440 is supposed to be \$40

5. hba

And 75 \$

6. hba

So if you take it again 75+40=115 \$

7. Tahmina

but why

8. Tahmina

To get a driver's license, most states require that you pass a both a written test and a road test. In one state you pay a fee of \$35 to take the written test and another \$40 to take the road test. If you fail the road test, you must pay the road test fee again to retake it.

9. Tahmina

thats the correct one!!!!!!!!!

10. hba

Now see this. How much is the written test for ?

11. mathmate

Can you confirm what the question wants?

12. mathmate

" If you got your licence the first time you repeated the road test, what would you have paid in total?" If you got your licence the first time, you DON'T repeat the road test. It's does not sound clear to me.

13. Tahmina

this is the question : one hundred twenty five thousand people have to take an additional road test at least once. If you got your licence the first time you repeated the road test, what would you have paid in total? what was the number of road test taken?

14. hba

How much is the written test for @Tahmina

15. Tahmina

\$35

16. hba

How is the road test for ?

17. Tahmina

wait i have something to say

18. hba

Sure.

19. mathmate

As @hba said, if you don't repeat the road test, it costs you \$35+40=\$75. If you repeat the road test (once only), then it costs \$75+40=\$115. Lots of people don't succeed in the repeat road test.

20. hba

So that is actually your answer and you have repeated it once.

21. Tahmina

okay nevermind I have nothing to say!!!!!!!!!!

22. hba

If i am guessing right.

23. Tahmina

then :what was the number of road test taken?

24. hba

Once you fail it you repeat it so the number of road test taken must be 2.

25. Tahmina

ur right i got that correct

26. mathmate

As I said, the question is not clear: " If you got your licence the first time you repeated the road test, what would you have paid in total?" If you got your licence the first time, you DON'T repeat the road test. The question is contradictory.

27. Tahmina

Yeah I got it thanks for you help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

28. mathmate

Perhaps the question is: If you "DID NOT" get your licence the first time you repeated the road test, what would you have paid in total?

29. hba

Well,@mathmate is correct that your question was not correct. Anyways,@Tahmina You are welcome :)

30. Tahmina

No that wasnt the question!!!!!!!!!!!!!

31. mathmate

Oh well, it's still contradictory! Anyway, good luck!

32. Tahmina

thanks so much appreciate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
