A taxi charges 414 for a 7-mile trip. How much will the taxi charge for 16-mile trip?

• Math -

My, \$414 is a lot for such a short trip! Does your problem have an error in it?

• Math -

414/7 = x/16
7x = 414(16)
7x = 6624
x = 926.29
but I wonder did you mean 4.14 in which case the answer would be 9.29
