(24 cents) per mile.
Toyotas rent for $31 per day and $.19 (19 cents) per mile.
Write a cost equation for each rental car.
Would the equation be in the form of
y = mx + b
y = .24x + 25
y = .19x + 31


The second one looks ok to me. All of the information from the first problem didn't print.

y=.19x+31
It costs $31 to rent the car and then you have to add in the .19 per mile that you drive.
