In a large  city, taxicabs charge $4.00 for the first 1/5 mile and $0.48 for each additional 1/5

mile. Frank has only $6.50. What is the maximum distance he can travel  (not including a tip for the cabbie)?

 

Frank can travel a maximum distance of __ miles.

$6.50 - $4 =$2.50 Left after the first 1/5 mile

 

$2.40/$.48 =5 - 1/5 miles

5 x 1/5 =1 miles traveled after the first 1/5 mile.

1 + 1/5 =1.2- miles-total distance traveled on $6.40
