a car rents for $35 per day plus .22 per mile. You are on a daily budget of $90. what mileage will allow you to stay within your budget?
Would the correct answer be 1.6?

Are you sure you can only drive 1.6 miles to stay under your budget???
First, subtract: $90  $35 = $55
Next, divide: $55 / $0.22 = ?
We'll be glad to check your answer. 
1.6 ????
your budget is $90, the car rents outright for $35.
That leaves you with $55 for "mileage".
at .22 per mile (I assume that is dollars?) you could go 55/.22 or 250 miles.
Check: 250 miles @ $.22/mile = 55.00
car rental = 35%
total = 90 dollars
