Hi guys, I have a question presented with 2 alternate scenarios:

Today is the 30th of January. Jimmy's car registration expired on the 19th of January (nearly 10 days ago). Jimmy has 2 options to renew his car registration:

Option 1:

Jimmy can pay a fee of $210 which will allow him to drive his vehicle for 3 months, starting from the 30th of January (today's date). With this option, his car rego will expire on the 30th of April.

Option 2:

Jimmy can pay a lower fee of $195, however this means that he can drive his vehicle up until the 19th of April (which is 3 months starting from 19th of Jan).

The question is, is Jimmy better off paying an additional $15 (210-195) for an extra 10 ish days of vehicle registration (30th of april - 19th of april)?

In each scenerio, consider "daily payment" and compare.
