a rental car costs \$24 per day plus 25 cents per mile. the total trip costs \$54. how many miles were traveled if the trip lasted one day?

• algebra -

54 - 24 = 30

30/0.25 = ? miles

• algebra -

well since its only one day the car rental would cost \$24. so

54-24= 30

then divide 30 by the cost per mile(.25)

30/.25=120 so they traveled 120 miles

That's ok, Roger. It helps students to see more than one way to solve a problem. It also confirms that the answer is right. :-)
