Question

A taxi from the local airport charges a fee of $5 plus $0.55 per one-fourth mile. How much will it cost to travel 9 miles in the taxi?

2 Answer

  • The equation for this problem is 5 + 9(.55 × 4)
    .55 × 4 = 2.2
    2.2 × 9 = 19.8
    19.8 + 5 = 24.8
    The cost of the taxi ride would be $24.80
  • $24.80. you multiply the 9 times 4 to get 36 then you multiply $.55 times 9. the you add that answer to $5. $24.80
