A 600-700 level question...
Total 32 pages..
First 4 pages cost 4$
Remaining 32-4=28, but every 11th page is free of cost so 11th and 22nd are free of cost
Hence pages charged =28-2=26
Total cost =4+26*0.50=4+13=17$

4+0.5(x-4) (we will take care of the 11th page bit later one)
4+0.5(32-4)
4+0.5(28)
4+14
=18

Now up to 32 pages there is two times 11th page, the 11th one and the 21st one. Each page (after 4) cost 0.5, so 2*0.5=1

18-1=17
