Good evening! If you assume the car's toll is "X", then the trailer would be 0.5X. The car and trailer would be X + 0.5X, or a total of 1.5X.
 
1.5X = $1.05
 
Divide both sides by 1.5
 
1.5X/1.5 = $1.05/1.5
 
X= $0.70
 
So the car is 70 cents and the trailer (half the price) would be 35 cents.
 
Hope this helps
