Question:

Trevor is researching the cost of college. The tuition for a two-year (four-semester) program at the community college costs $2,000 per semester. The tuition for a four-year (eight-semester) program at the state college costs $6,000 per semester. Which of the following statements is true regarding the cost of these two programs?

A The four-year program costs six times as much as the two-year program.
Explaination

The total cost of the two-year program at the community college is 4($2000), or $8000. The total cost of the four-year program at the state college is 8($6000), or $48,000. Since (6) * ($8,000) = $48,000, the cost of the four-year program is six times the cost of the two-year program.
