Unable to come at this equation ....total fare= No. of km * Fare / Km----->1.24 = 0.34 + 0.06*(1/5) X

Here X is the No of 1/5 interval.So X= 75 n total distance = 1/5 X = 15+0.25=15.25

The above equation differs from my equation. Pls let me know where i am wrong

The equation is, where x = total miles

-> 124 = 34 + (6)(5)(x-0.25)

solve for x

Since the charge is 6 cents for 1/5 mile, it will be 30 cents for the entire mile. I think thats where you're making the error. Also, i didn't see where you are subtracting the 0.25 miles.
