And these are the choices--> The hybrid vehicle is a better value. The standard vehicle is a better value. Either − after that amount of time, she will have spent the same amount. Not enough information.

14000 + .22x = v 24000 + .13x = v

the first step is to write out 2 equation that will give you the value spent per mile.... like i did. you can then plot these points on a graph of make a table....but the real quaestion is what is the value after 80000 miles. So just plug in 80000 for x in each of them to see which costs more
