1. Best Rentals charges a daily fee plus a mileage fee for renting its cars. Barney was charged $123.00 for 3 days and 300 miles, while Mary was charged $216.00 for 5 days and 600 miles. What does Best Rental charge per day, for mileage?

  • math -

    break it down line by line to set up your equations.

    using d for daily charge and m for mileage charge,

    Barney: 3d + 300m = 123
    Mary: 5d + 600m = 216

    Subtract M from 2*B:

    d = 30
    so, m = .11

    check: 3*30 + 300*.11 = 90+33 = 123
    5*30 + 600*.11 = 150+66 = 216
