A cassette shop charges $5 for renting a video cassette for the first day. It charges $2 extra for every additional day. Which of these algebraic expressions tells you the amount that Sarah would pay if she rents a video cassette for *n* days?

**Choices:**

A. $(3 + 2*n*)

B. $(5*n* + 2)

C. *$ n*

D. $(5 - 2*n)*

**Correct Answer: A**

**Solution:**

**Step 1: **$5 for the first day and $2 extra for every additional day.

**Step 2: ** Sarah would pay $5 + (*n* - 1) × $2 for renting a video cassette for *n* days.

**Step 3: **So, the algebraic expression that corresponds to the amount that Sarah would pay is $(3 + 2*n*).
