Nancy Billows bought 150 shares of NBC Universal stock at $22.885 per share. Her broker charged her $22.05 for the brokerage commission. What is the average cost per share (include brokerage fee) to the nearest cent?

The simple way to figure this out is to expand everything and write it out.

\[\frac{ 150*22.885+22.05 }{ 150 }\]

Then if you simplify and solve you'll get: 23.032 and since you can't have that and need to round to the nearest cent you would change it to $23.03 since 2 rounds down.
