Re: A certain shipping service charges an insurance fee of $0.75 [#permalink] 01 Dec 2015, 18:22 Expert's post Solution Note that two of the packages being shipped have contents that are worth$25.00 or less.
Therefore, each of them has an insurance fee of $0.75, for a total of$1.50.
The third package has contents worth over $25.00, and it has an insurance fee of$1.00.
Therefore, the total insurance fee for the three packages is $1.50 +$1.00 = $2.50, and the correct answer is $$C$$. _________________ Sandy If you found this post useful, please let me know by pressing the Kudos Button Try our free Online GRE Test GRE Instructor Joined: 10 Apr 2015 Posts: 3264 Followers: 126 Kudos [?]: 3665 [1] , given: 62 Re: A certain shipping service charges an insurance fee of$0.75 [#permalink]  15 May 2019, 14:11

$18.25 package Cost =$0.75

$25.00 package Cost =$0.75

$127.50 package Cost =$1.00

TOTAL cost = $0.75 +$0.75 + $1.00 =$2.50
