1. f=35+15m
c=34+16m

if c>f
34+16m>35+15m
subtract 34 from each side, then subtract 15m from each side.

m>1 so at 1.05 miles, the c exceeds the f.

2. Ford rental: cost = 35 + .14x, where x is the number of miles
Chevy rental: cost = 34 + .16x

when is 34 + .16x > 35 + .14x
.02x > 1
x > 1/.02
x > 50
