The cost of sending a package is T cents for the first 1/4 kilogram and T/5 for each additional 1/4 kilogram or fraction thereof. What is the cost, in cents, to send a P kilogram package at this rate, where P is an integer greater than 1.

a) PT/20
b) (PT-1)/20
c) [(P/4)+1]T
d) [(16P-1)T]/20
e) [4T(P+1)]/5

IMO E
My strategy :
n=4p-1 - total number of 1/4 parts of p kilograms

and total cost = T+T/5*n

hence solve this get E

Nice method. I wrote a much more complicated equation.
