# Write a function called fare that computes the bus fare one must pay in a given city based on the distance travelled. Here is how the fare is calculated: the first mile is \$2. Each additional mile up to a total trip distance of 10 miles is 25 cents.

my code is
function [fare] = fare(a,d)
if d<=1
fare = 2;
elseif d<=10
fare = 2+0.25*(d-1);
else
fare = 2+0.10*(d-1);
return
end
if a<=18||a>=60
fare = 0.80*fare;
end

Then what is your question? Is there a reason why you posted this?
Naming a function by the same name as the return variables would seem a bit dangerous. But surely there is some good reason why you are asking a question.

function Kcost= fare(d, A)
d=round(d); %rounding the distance to nearest positive integer
if d <=1
Kcost=2; %for first kilometer
elseif d > 1 && d <= 10
Kcost=2+0.25*(d-1); % for distance greater then 1 and less than 10
elseif d > 10
Kcost=2+0.25*9+0.10*(d-10); % distance greater than 10
end
if (A<=18 || A>=60)
Kcost= 0.8*Kcost; %discount
end
end
