Hondas rent for $25 per day and $.24 (24 cents) per mile.

Toyotas rent for $31 per day and $.19 (19 cents) per mile.

Write a cost equation for each rental car The distance from Monterey, Ca to San Francisco, Ca is about 110 miles. Which car would be the better choice to rent for a one-way drive to San Francisco from Monterey?

Which car would be the better choice to rent for a round-trip drive from Monterey to San Francisco and back?

What is the break-even point for both rental cars, include the mileage and cost.

My answer for the first part: Let x = number of miles driven. Let y = cost to rent cars
