What is the luggage fuel cost in Canadian dollars for each airline if all passengers bring the maximum luggage (see picture for details)?

I got the answer $3498 and$3672 but I think I could be wrong :(

You are right!

• Quantum air: $3498 CAN • AirWest:$3672 CAN

Explanation:

Quantum Air
Total maximum luggage per passenger = 50 + 20 + 5 = 75 lb

$\text{luggage fuel cost" = 100 " passengers"xx(75 " lb")/(1 " passenger")xx($0.44 " USD")/("lb")xx($1.06 " CAN")/($1.00 " USD")=$3498 " CAN}$

AirWest
Total maximum luggage per passenger = 20 + 10 = 30 kg

$\text{luggage fuel cost" = 120 " passengers"xx(30 " kg")/(1 " passenger")xx($1.02 " CAN")/("kg")= $3672 " CAN}$
