Textbook Problem

a. What is the total cost of fuel for a 4,602 mile trip if your vehicle gets 23.6 miles per gallon and the average cost of gasoline is $ 3.40 9 10 ? Round to the nearest cent.

b. While on the trip, you paid $368.50 for engine repairs and $37.80 for a new battery. In addition, tolls amounted to $45.75 and parking averaged $4.50 per day for nine days. What was the cost per mile for the trip? Round to the nearest tenth of a cent.

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The total cost of fuel for a 4,602 mile trip when vehicle gets 23.6 miles per gallon and average cost of gasoline is $3.40910.

Explanation

Given information:

The vehicle requires 23.6 miles per gallon of fuel and the average cost of gasoline is $3.40910.

Formula used:

Step-1 Divide the numerator by denominator.

Step-2 Add a decimal point and zeros, as necessary, to the numerator.

Numerator(dividend)Denominator(divisor)=DenominatorNumerator

Calculation:

Consider the vehicle requires 23.6 miles per gallon of fuel and the average cost of gasoline is $3.40910.

Use the formula, Numerator(dividend)Denominator(divisor)=DenominatorNumerator

Suppose the total fuel required for a 4,602 mile trip is n

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The cost per mile for the trip when cost of engine repairing is $368.50, cost of a new battery is $37.80, cost of tolls is $45.75 and cost of parking average $4.50 per day for nine days.
