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?

• algebra -

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 = ?

• algebra -

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
