• Math 101 -

1. They give two sets of information. Letting d = the daily charge, and m be the mileage charge, and c be the total charge

c = d + m*x where x miles are driven

123 = 3d + 300m
216 = 5d + 600m

Subtract the second from twice the first:

246 = 6d + 600m
216 = 5d + 600m

30 = d
so, 0.11

so,

c = 30 + 0.11x

2.

369000 = 13r + 6(44000-r)
369000 = 13r + 264000 - 6r
105000 = 7r
r = 15000 reserved seats
29000 general seats
