Question Description

Need help with my Mathematics question - I’m studying for my class.

A parking garage charges $2.71 for the first hour and $0.50 for each additional hour or part of an hour. What is the maximum length of time he can park in the garage if he wishes to pay no more then $7.71?

What maximum length of time in hours can park

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

7.71 = 2.71 + .5x

5.5 = .5x

11 = x

Thus, the max length is 12 hours (i.e., the first hour for $2.71, then 11 more hours for an additional $5.50)
