The rental center charges $2.25 for every purchase made with a credit card. She also had to pay late fees in the amount of $55 four different times. What is the total cost of the refrigerator?

    well you know that the renatl centers charges will be 2.25 multiplied by 12 since she is making twelve payments

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

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

    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

    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.
