Number of wheels in truck = 18 Number of wheels on its front axle =2 number of wheels remaining = 16 number of axles remaining axles = 16/4 = 4 Total number of axles = 5

T = 1.50 + 0.50( x − 2) = 1.50 + .5*3 = 1.5 +1.5 = 3 $ Answer B

Total number of wheels on the truck = 18 Number of wheels on front axle = 2 Remaining number of wheels is 16 but each of the other axles have 4 wheels on each of them so remaining number of axles = \(\frac{16}{4}\) = 4 axles so the truck has 5 axles in total i.e x= 5 substituting this value in given formula T = 1.50 + 0.50( x − 2) T = 1.50 + 0.50 (5 - 2) T = 1.50 + 0.50 * 3 T = 1.50 + 1.50 T = $3.00

We need to determine the toll for an 18-wheel truck that has 2 wheels on its front axle and 4 wheels on each of its other axles.

Since there are 18 wheels and 2-wheels on the front axle and 4 wheels on the other, we have 1 axle for the front 2-wheels and 16/4 = 4 axles for the other wheels. Thus, the truck has a total of 5 axles and its toll is:

for front one axel we have 2 wheels so for other 16 wheels we have 4 wheels per axle ie 4 axle total axel = 4+1 ; 5=x hence the toll T = 1.50 + 0.50( x − 2) ' 1.5+1.5= 3 option B ; $3
