Ace Rent a Car charges a flat fee of $15 and $0.25 a mile for their cars. Acme Rent a Car charges a flat fee of $30 and $0.17 a mile for their cars. Use the following model to find out after how many miles Ace Rent a Car becomes more expensive than Acme Rent a Car. c= 15+0.25m Ace, c=30+0.17m Acme

Can someone please help me with these two problems?

**Reiny**, Thursday, October 27, 2011 at 8:29amI will do the first, you do the second

number of $19's --- x

number of $26's --- x-3

number of $23's --- 32 - x - (x-3) = 35-2x

19x + 26(x-3) + 23(35-2x) = 716

19x + 26x - 78 + 805 - 46x = 716

-x = -11

x = 11

he sold 11 of the $19's

8 of the $26's and

13 of the $23's
