12 + 3n = 27

n = 5

Total time = n+1 hrs = 6 hrs

We take n+1 as the initial rental 12$ has one hour included.

B is the correct answer.

OG Q 2017(Book Question: 164)


Total Rent = Rent for First Hour + No of Hours * Rate per hour

27 = 12 + 3 ( No of Hours )
15 = 3 ( No of Hours )

Or, No of Hours ( above first hour) = 5 hours...

So, Total hours worked is 6 hours ( 5 + 1 )

Answer will be (B)

great question!
12+3*hours=27
We need [1 + h?]
h=(27-12)/3
h=5

1+5=6

Answer is B
Beware of not writing 5!
