Please help. Merina is moving out of her mom's house to her new house which is 14 miles away to reach her new house. Truck A offers a flat fee of $25 and $.40 per mile. What is the proper equation to solve the problem.

glad to help. One thing to remember about story problems is that if they only give you a few pieces of data, the required equation will usually be very simple, since you don't have much to work with.
