    What does this mean "In addition, the cost of car insurance is 3.0 per rental." Should there be a % symbol after the 3 as in 3% of the rental cost?

    c= .5m +103 c(180) = 90+103 = 193 not cheap :)

    representation; r= number of day m=number of mile traveled \[cost=100r+.50m+3\] that's the equation i got.

    to find the cost given 180 miles for a day cost= 100(1) + .50(180) + 3 = 100 + 90 + 3 = 193, not bad. . .
