Q:
# 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

A:

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

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
