Parking in a student lot costs $3 for the first hour half and $1.50 for each hour thereafter. A partial hour is charged the same as a full hour. What is the longest time a student can park for in this lot for $9?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

for first hour 3$ then remaining 6 $ will cost 1.5$ per hour
so = 6/1.5 =4 hours

total hours that cost 9$ = 5 hours
