**drwls**, Thursday, February 17, 2011 at 1:01amThe fare is the same when the distance x satisfies this equation:

0.75 + 0.15(x-0.25) = 1.00 + 0.10(x-0.25)

0.15x + 0.7125 = 0.10x + 0.9750

x = 5.25 miles

You could do this without algebra. After the first quarter mile, the second taxi costs 25 cents more. You need to go 5 more miles to make up the difference at 5 cents per mile.
