Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.012 payments of 97.32, 4 late fees of 55, and one 2.25 purchase fee: \[12 \times $97.2 + 4 \times $55 + 1 \times $2.25 = ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@agent0smith that would mean the answer is 1390.09 but thats not even an answer...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Closer... but still not quite correct. \[\large (12 \times $97.2) + (4 \times $55) +( 1 \times $2.25) = ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well then it looks like the $2.25 doesn't count as part of the cost, for whatever reason. If you remove the 2.25, you get one of those answers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or if you remove the late fees as well you get another of those answers :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think that they charge 2.25 for every credit card charge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the credit card actually charges 2.25 for every *payment* then the question is just very poorly worded.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question states "$2.25 for every purchase made with a credit card" the only purchase she made is the fridge.
