He will need to pay $120 for application fees, $950 for security deposit, and first and last months’ rent at $1,140 per month. He has $1,810 in savings.
So,
total money he need to give = $ ( 120 + 950 + 1140 + 1140 ) = $ 3350
total money he have = $1810
Now, Money he need = $(3350-1810)= $1540
As we know He charges $175 per car
So,
No. of car he need = ($1540/$175) = 8.8 = 9(after rounding)
Hence,
9 car is the answer
