The best way to solve this is to figure out how many units of distance he drove, then figure out how many miles that is.goffbbb wrote:A taxi charges $1.20 for the first 1/6 mile and $.40 for each additional 1/6 mile. If the taxi fare was $18.80, how far did the taxi drive?
1.20 + x-1(0.40) = 18.80
-1.20 -1.20
-------------------------
x-1(0.40) = 17.60
x-1(0.40) = 17.60
--------- ------
(0.40) (0.40)
17.60
X-1= -----
0.40
x-1 = 44
+1 +1
--------
x = 45
When you ask someone to do your math assignment, you need to give them all of the problem. The previous questions to this one hold the keys to the solution of this one.Anonymous wrote:Given that the matrix A is symmetric if and then find the values of x, y and z (if possible).
