Paul rented a car for $129 plus $0.25 per mile. The total bill at the end of his trip was $216.50. Use the equation 129 + 0.25x = 216.50 to find the number of miles he drove

    simple solve for x get x by itself by subtracting 129 from both sides then divide by .25 both sides and there you go

    129 + 0.25x = 216.50 .25x = 87.50 x = 87.50/.25 x = 350 Paul drove 250 miles and got a bill for @216.50. I hope he paid the bill.
