Let F be the flat rate. Let x be the mileage rate. The two equations for the given information would be: F+107x=97.15 and F+127x=106.15 Do you follow this line of reasoning?

I will continue, you may do it different, but I did the following. Take each equation and isolate F. F=97.15-107x F=106.15-127x we know that F=F so we can write: 97.15-107x=106.15-127x Consolidating terms using algebra -107x+127x=106.15-97.15 20x=9.00 x=.45 or 45 cents per mile F=97.15-(107 * .45) F=97.15-48.15 F=$49.00 Did you get the same?
