A cab company charges an initial rate of $2.50 for a ride, plus $0.40 for each mile driven. What is the equation that models the total fee for using this cab company? Write into an equation and then graph it.

Accepted Solution

your equation would be 2.50 + .40x = ?
so you would have 2.50 for the initial rate plus .40 for every mile so that would be represented as .40x . so lets say you took a cab ride 20 miles away so you would have 2.50 +.40(20)=10.50 so your total fee would end up being $10.50
