    The cost of the gas is £67.81 p

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Here we have

    Initial gas reading = 8247

    Final gas reading = 8631

    Therefore the total consumed gas is given by

    Final gas reading - Initial gas reading → 8631 - 8247 = 384

    Since the cost of gas is 11p per unit we have, the total cost of the gas consumed is given by

    Cost of consumed gas = Units of gas consumed * Unit cost of gas

    = 384 * 11p = 4224 p

    100 p ≡ £ 1

    Therefore 4224 p = £42.24 p

    The total cost of the gs is obtained by adding the fixed charge to the cost of gas consmed as follows

    £25.57 + £42.24 = £67.81 p

    The cost of the gas = £67.81 p
