4.5 mile = 1 +1+1+1+0.5 miles = 1 mile + 14 quarter miles

Price paid = 8+1*14 = $22 Answer: Option C _________________ Prosper!!!

Let 'x' be the no of quarter miles.

A 4.5 mile consists of first mile and x no of quarter miles.
Or, 1+$$\frac{x}{4}$$=4.5
Or, $$\frac{x}{4}$$=3.5
Or, x=3.5*4=14

Taxi charge for a 4.5 mile ride= Taxi charges for 1st mile+ Taxi charges for 14 nos. of additional quarter miles
