After purchasing a car, Eleanor adjusts her budget to cover most car-related expenses that may occur. The monthly payment for her loan is \$252.77, the cost of car insurance for 6 months is \$688.71, the estimated fuel cost per month is \$170, and she wants to set aside \$800 per year for repairs and other maintenance. How much should Eleanor budget per month for car expenses? Round your answer to the nearest cent.

Monthly Loan payments towards car = \$252.77

Monthly cost of car insurance = \$688.71/6 months = \$114.79 per month

Estimated Fuel cost per month = \$170

Repair and maintenance per month = \$800/12 month = \$66.67 per month

Eleanor budget per month for car expenses = Monthly Loan payments towards car + Monthly cost of car insurance + Estimated Fuel cost per month + Repair and maintenance per month

Eleanor budget per month for car expenses = \$252.77 + \$114.79 + \$170 + \$66.67

Eleanor budget per month for car expenses = \$604.23
