Answer is B ie. 25\$.

Ms. Smith drove a total of 700 miles for her business trip. (Not exactly a wise decision, a flight would have been more comfortable)

We also know that her car can travel an average of 35 miles per gallon of fuel.

Hence, to find out the amount of fuel her car must have consumed, we divide 700 by 35 to get 20 gallons.

Now a gallon of fuel costs 1.25\$.

Hence the total amount of money spent on fuel is 1.25 x 20 = 25\$(which is probably which she chose to drive)
