Let the price per month for summer be $x.
/hence the price for entire year would be 3x+ \frac{3x}{2}+\frac{6x}{3}= 3861
final equation becomes [fraction][/fraction]13x/2 = 3861
x = 594;
thus monthly rent = $594
Answer C

let summer price be x

we can say
3x/2+2x+3x = 3861

x = 594
IMO C

Let the cost of each each month in summer = x......Therefore total cost in summer = 3x

Then, cost of each each month in spring = \(\frac{1}{2}\)x......Therefore total cost in sparing = \(\frac{3}{2}\)x

Also cost of each each month in fall or winter = \(\frac{1}{2}\)x......Therefore total cost in fall and winter = 2x

\(3x + 2x+ \frac{3}{2}x\)= 3861.....multiple by 2

13x = 3861 * 2 ( do not calculate)

Here x Must be Even............eliminate A & B

The unit digit of 3861 * 2 is 2.Therefore scan the other choices to see if 13x gives unit digit 2.....By eyes.....only one answer fits

Answer: C
