12 payments of 97.32, 4 late fees of 55, and one 2.25 purchase fee: \[12 \times $97.2 + 4 \times $55 + 1 \times $2.25 = ?\]

@agent0smith that would mean the answer is 1390.09 but thats not even an answer...

Closer... but still not quite correct. \[\large (12 \times $97.2) + (4 \times $55) +( 1 \times $2.25) = ?\]

$1,387.84 $1,414.84 $1,167.84 $1,194.84

Well 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.

Or if you remove the late fees as well you get another of those answers :/

i think that they charge 2.25 for every credit card charge
agent0smith
  • agent0smith
If the credit card actually charges 2.25 for every *payment* then the question is just very poorly worded.

The question states "$2.25 for every purchase made with a credit card" the only purchase she made is the fridge.
