Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:the number of times in a month the train must be used, so that the total monthly cost without the pass is the same as the total monthly cost with the pass, is b. 24 timesStep-by-step explanation:in normal purchase, train ticket (A) = $2.00using frequent pass,frequent pass (P) = $18train ticket using frequent pass (B) = $1.25Now, let assume the number of times in a month the train must be used = Mso, A x M = P + (B x M) $2.00 x M = $18 + ($1.25 x M) ($2.00 x M) - ($1.25 x M) = $18 M x ($2.00 - $1.25) = $18 M = $18 : $0.75 M = 24Thus, the number of times in a month the train must be used is 24 times
