Maths Challenge - Taxi Cabs
Max and Liz are organising a trip to the airport for a party of 75 people.
They can use two types of taxi.
A small taxi costs £40 for the trip and holds up to 4 people.
A large taxi costs £63 for the trip and holds up to 7 people.
Max says they should order 6 large taxis
1 (a) So how many small taxis would they need?
(b) How much will the total cost be?
Liz thinks that they can organise the journey more cheaply than this!
- Is Liz right? How many taxis of each type should they order to get the total cost as low as possible?
