Ace Rent a Car charges a flat fee of $15 and $0.25 a mile for their cars. Acme Rent a Car charges a flat fee of $30 and $0.17 a mile for their cars. Use the following model to find out after how many miles Ace Rent a Car becomes more expensive than Acme Rent a Car. c= 15+0.25m Ace, c=30+0.17m Acme
Can someone please help me with these two problems?

I will do the first, you do the second
number of $19's  x
number of $26's  x3
number of $23's  32  x  (x3) = 352x
19x + 26(x3) + 23(352x) = 716
19x + 26x  78 + 805  46x = 716
x = 11
x = 11
he sold 11 of the $19's
8 of the $26's and
13 of the $23's
