1. Total cost of the field trip = Total cost of all students + Transportaion cost
Cost per student = 250
Total number of students = 42
Therefore, Total cost of all student = 250 x 42
Total cost of all students = 10500
Given that, Transportaion cost is 5000.
Therefore,
Total cost of the field trip = 10500 + 5000
Total cost of field trip = 15500 Rs.
2. Now, if each student contributes an equal amount to the total cost of 15500 Rs, each student will have to pay,
15500/42 = 369.05
That is, each student will have to approximately pay Rs. 369 so that each student contributes an equal amount towards the total cost of the field trip.
