A rental car agency charges $15 per day plus $.11 per mile to rent a certain car. Another agency charges $18 per day plus 8 cents per mile to rent the same car. If they rent the car for one day how many miles will they have to be driven for the cost of a car from the first agency to equal the cost of a car from the second agency.

the cost is the same for m miles if

15+.11m = 18+.08m

Now just solve for m.

you're all wrong, you idiots. it's 100 miles.

15 + .11m = 18 + .08m

.11m = 3 + .08

.03 = 3

m = 100
