Can someone please explain/teach me how can solve this type of question easily and quickly. I am having really a hard time with type of questions
Appreciate very much.
Trucking transportation rates are x dollars per metric ton per kilometer. How much does it cost, in dollars, to transport one dozen cars, which weigh two metric tons each, n kilometers by truck?
Do not worry too much!
1. one dozen = 12 cars
2. 12 cars each (= each of 12 cars) weighs 2 tons. So total = 12*2=24 tons
3. total tons and kilometers = 24*n
4. one ton and one kilometers costs x dollars, so total costs : x*24*n dollars
