Ruth borrowed a book from a library. The library charged a fixed rental for the book and a late fee for every day the book was overdue. The expression below shows the charges Ruth paid for the book when she returned it x days after the due date: 2 + 0.25x What does the second term of the expression represent? The total late fee paid The fixed rental for the book The late fee per day for the book The number of days the book was overdue
Is this the full question?
Question has been edited to provide missing info
The fixed rental is the first term. So .25x would be The late fee per day for the book. The whole thing in total is the total fee and the number of days that the book was overdue is x.
