Mini van cost= 65*0.6+2.05
truck capacity =65(1+120/100)=143lts.
cost of truck=143+0.6+2.05
Total cost =3* 41.05(car)+2*87.85(truck)=298.85

Service cost of 3 van and 2 truck = 2.05*(3+2)= 10.5

Fuel in 3 Van = 3*65=195 litre
Fuel in 2 Trucks =2 * 65(1+120/100)= 286
Total fuel(Van+Truck) = 481 Litre
Total Fuel cost = 481*0.6 = 288.6

TOTAL COST = FUEL + SERVICE = 288.6+10.25 = 298.85

Minivan 2.05* 3 + 65 * 3

Truck 2.05 * 2 + 143 * 2

2.05 * 5 + 288.60 = 10.25 + 288.60 = 298.85

D. 298.85\$
