• Option 1: Truck A offers a flat fee of \$25 and \$.50 per mile.
• Option 2: Truck B offers a flat fee of \$30 and \$.25 per mile.

Suppose Meagan would like to know when the costs are equal between the two companies.

Write an equation that shows the costs are equal.

1. let number of miles be x

when is
.5x + 25 = .25x + 30
times 4
2x + 100 = x + 120
x = 20

equal at 20 miles
