    Question Are they of the same meaning?

    Dear English speakers,

    Help!! Please see if the following sentences are of the same meaning.

    1. A bike cost me three hundred dollars to rent.
    2. A bike cost three hundred dollars for me to rent it.
    3. It cost me three hundred dollars to rent a bike.

    Thanks in advance!

    #1 and #3 say the same. #2 is ungrammatical.
