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 = ?

    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
