1. 12:45pm to 6:15pm is 5hour and 30 minutes.
convert this to half hours so 5*2 half hour + 1half hour

here 1 hour charge is \$1.50 and additional 0.55 cents

by calculating just additional hours
4*2 half hour + 1 half hour =8 half hour + 1 half hour = 9 half hours

additional .55 cent charge per hour
9 half hour * 0.55 cents = 4.95

now add the intial charge for 1hour.
ie, 4.95+\$1.50= \$ 6.45

2. 12:45 - 6:15 = 5.5 hours

That's 1 hour plus 9 additional half-hours.

3. 12:45 to 6:15 is 5:30 minutes.
(12:45 + 15 minute is 1p.m. we have 30 minutes)
Now we have to count 1p.m. to 6p.m. is 5 hours.
The first an hour \$1.50
We have additional half hour 4:30 miutes= half hour for 9 ×55 cents
=495÷100= \$4.95+\$1.50= \$6.45

4. 12:45pm - 6:15pm - is 6Hr 30Min
or
6hr 1half hr...
less 1 hr at 1.50\$ leaving 5hr and 1 half hour

5 full hr x 2 half hours/hr = 10half hrs + 1 half hr = 11 half hr

11 half hr @ .55 cents = 6.05\$

6.05\$ for 11 half hrs + 1.50\$ for the initial hour = 7.55\$
