A rental car agency charges \$15 per day plus \$.11 per mile to rent a certain car. Another agency charges \$18 per day plus 8 cents per mile to rent the same car. If they rent the car for one day how many miles will they have to be driven for the cost of a car from the first agency to equal the cost of a car from the second agency.
