Question ID: 769697
I'm looking for a couple of pieces of information:

1) How often does the average car need service?  (repairs and
scheduled maintenance) (answer should be in terms of "x times per

2) What is the nationwide density of auto repair facilities, in terms
of facilities per 1,000 people?

Each answer would be worth $10 to me.  And I have a bonus question
that could bring the total up to $30:

3)how many auto repair facilities are there in Loudoun County, Virginia?

But in order to get credit for answering #3 you must answer #2,
otherwise I can't really use the information.

Thanks and good luck.

I've raised the amount I'm willing to pay to $15 for each of the three
questions, or $45.00 total.  Question 2 must be answered to receive
credit for a question 3 answer.
