You're more likely to get a response in the Problem Solving section: http://www.beatthegmat.com/problem-solving-f6.html

Also, please make sure to transcribe the question correctly. I believe it should read as follows: A certain taxi company charges $3.10 for the first 1/5 of a mile plus $0.40 for each additional 1/5 of a mile. What would this company charge for a taxi ride that was 8 miles long?

Correct Answer: D
