Suppose that a car rental agency gave you the following choices.
Option A $30 per day plus 40ยข per mile
Option B flat $50 per day

(a) Write equations for cost per day c for options A and B. (Use m for distance in miles.)
c = $

(option A)
c = $

(option B)

(b)How would i graph the equations for options A and B.

  • Math -

    a) A: c = $30 + 0.40m
    B: c = $50

    b) you would have miles on the x-axis and cost on the y-axis. Option a will be a sloped line and option b will be a flat line at $50.
