What is the maximum distance someone could travel with \$4.90?A. 4 milesB. 4 1/4 milesC. 4 3/4 milesD. 5 1/2 milesE. 6 1/4 miles(D) If we start out with \$4.90 and have to spend \$1.75 for the first quarter-mile, we will have \$3.15 left to spend on quarter-mile intervals.Since \$3.15/\$0.15 = 21, we can buy 21 more quarter-miles, and will travel 22 quarter miles in all:22 × 1/4 = 5 1/2 miles.The correct answer is choice (D).----------Quarter = \$.15 or \$.25?Please correct me if I am wrong. If \$.25 then I guess the answer will be B.
