  • Answer:

    The correct answer is option B, $ 186.97

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Rent paid for the car per day = $52.99

    Mr. Barrett hired the car for 3 days

    Thus, the total rental expenses on car for three days =

    = $52.99/day x 3 days

    = $ 158.97- ------------------(A)

    Cost of driving car per mile = $0.35

    Mr. Barrett drove the car for 130 miles

    Thus the total expenses on driving 80 miles as first 50 miles were free =  

    = $0.35/mile x 80 miles

    =  $ 28 ……………………..(B)

    The total expenses occurred -  

    = (Total rental expenses on car for three days) + (Total expenses on driving 130 miles)

    = $ 158.97 + $ 28

    =  $ 186.97
