For each order, a mail order bookseller charges a fixed processing fee and an additional shipping fee for each book in the order. Rajeev placed five different orders with this bookseller - an order for 1 book in January, an order for 2 books in February, an order for 3 books in March, an order for 4 books in April, and an order for 5 books in May. What was the total of Rajeev's processing and shipping fee for these five orders?

(1) Rajeev's processing and shipping fees were $1 more for his order in March than for his order in January (2) The total of Rajeev's shipping fees for the five orders was $7.50

1: y+x+1=y+3x --> 1=2x --> 1/2=x Nothing about the fixed fee.

Statement says : "a mail order bookseller charges a fixed processing fee and an additional shipping fee for each book in the order" S = additional fee. P = processing fee. J - S + P F - S + S + P Ma - S + S + S + P A - S + S + S + S + P M - S + S + S + S + S + P total = 15S + 5P

1) 1) Rajeev's processing and shipping fees were $1 more for his order in March than for his order in January Ma - J = 1 S + S + S + P - (S + P) = 1 2S = 1 S = 1/2

2) 15S + 5P = 7.5 15*1/2 + 5P = 7.5

Sounds like processing fee is zero My answer is C.
