toll for a car and trailer on a turnpike is 1/2 times the toll for a car alone if the toll for a car and trailer is 1.05 what is the toll for a car alone
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
So the car is 70 cents and the trailer (half the price) would be 35 cents.
Hope this helps
