Mr. Smith wants to rent a Suv to go from home to a conference in Seattle, he expects to do 350 miles in total during this journey

There are 3 rental companies:

Hertzy Rental-Fixed rate of $58 dollars with no mileage charge

Alabo Rental-Charge $.35 cents per mile

Nifty Rental-Charge a fixed rate of $28 plus $.15 cents per mile

**Steve**, Friday, October 26, 2012 at 5:44pmcharge for x miles:

Hertz: 58

Alabo: .35x

Nifty: 28 + .15x

so, for 350 miles, you get

Hertz: 58.00

Alabo: .35(350) = 122.50

Nifty: 28 + .15(350) = 80.50

I guess it's easy now to tell which is cheapest for a 350-mile rental.
