Solve the following word problems for the unknown. Round decimals to hundredths and p ercents to the nearest tenth when necessary. Last year Keystones corporate jet required $23,040 in maintenance and repairs. a. If this represents 32% of the total operating costs of the airplane, what was the total cost to fly the plane for the year?b. If the plane flew 300,000 miles last year, what is the cost per mile to operate the plane?c. Sky King Leasing offered a deal whereby it would operate the plane for Keystone for only$0.18 per mile.
