The ever ready taxicab charge $1.20 for the first 14 of a mile and$.35 for each additional 14 of a mile and distance between airports to downtown is 834.

Formula used:

Step-1 Total the number of decimal place in the two factors, the multiplier and the multiplicand.

Step-2 Insert the decimal point in the product, giving it the same places as the total from Step 1.

Calculation:

Consider the given information that the ever ready taxicab charge $1.20 for the first 14 of a mile and$.35 for each additional 14 of a mile and distance between airport to downtown is 834.
