Answer:
The correct answer is option B, $ 186.97
Stepbystep 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
