a parking garage charges $2 for the first hour and $1 for each additional hour. Fran has $7.50 to spend for parking. what is the greatest number of hours Fran can park?
Find the number of greatest hour did Fran used for parking in where: => parking charge $2 for the first hour => and $1 for the additional hours. => Fran spent $7.5 in all. To get the answer let’s have the solution this way. => 7.5 dollars – 2 dollars = we need to subtract the first hour which is 2 dollars. => 5.5 dollars left. => 5.5 dollars / 1 dollar per hour => 5.5 hour + 1 hour => 6.5 hours Thus, Fran parked for 6.5 hours and payed 7.5 dollars.
