The rental charge for a car is 34 cents for the first 1/4 mile driven and 6 cents for every 1/5 mile driven over the initial 1/4 mile. If a man paid \$1.24 in rental charges, how many miles did he drive?

he drove 3 1/4 miles. first quarter mile which cost 34 cents. So subtract 34 cents from \$1.24. Remainder of trip cost 90 cents. Divide this by 6c per 1/5 of mile. 90/6=15. 15/5 of a mile is 3 miles. Add back the original 1/4 mile.
