    let y for the cost, x for mile for $50 rental cost: y=0.5x+$50 for $80 rental cost: y=0.5x+$80

    lols at person above you are being asked to solve y=0.5x +50 and the horizontal line y=80 SIMULTANEOUSLY

    so you graph the first one on graphing paper, then you draw in the flat line y=80 , and the x cordinate of their intersection on the graph paper is the solutiion
