I found the missing choices. The choices are: 14 = 0.5p + 12 14 = 12p + 0.5 p = 0.5(14) + 12 p = 12(14) + 0.5 Given: constant travel time. 12 minutes 30 seconds additional time per passenger 14 minutes - travel time on Tuesday. Since 30 seconds is half the total seconds in a minute, it is equal to 0.50 The correct equation is: 14 = 0.5p + 12
