The answer is $125.00, as it costs you 25 cents per mile ($3.00 divided by 12).

TC = 500 x (3.00 / 12).

You can also calculate it from 500/12 which tells you that you need 41 and 2/3 gallons to go 500 miles, and then multiply times the price per gallon. But this is only exact using fractions, not decimals.

TC = (500/12) x 3.00
