Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: 31 word ad will cost $7.75 to Evenson.Step-by-step explanation:The charge for first 20 words = $5The next each word costs = $0.25 each wordTotal number of words need to be published by Evenson = 31Now, 31 = 20 + 11Now, cost of first 20 words = $5and Cost of additional 11 words = 11 x (Price of each additional word) = 11 x ($0.25) = $2.75or the additional 11 words costs = $2.75Now, Total cost = Fixed price of 20 words + additional cost of 11 words = $5 + $2.75 = $7.75or, Total cost of 31 word ad = $7.75Hence, a 31 word ad will cost $7.75 to Evenson.
