Trini's car breaks down on a highway. Trini estimates that she is 20 to 30 miles from the nearest car repair shop. She calls a towing company that charges a fee of $80 plus $3 per mile to tow a car. If Trini uses this towing company, which is the best estimate for the amount of money, m, she will pay for the company to tow her car?

    $80 + 3*30 = $80+$90 = $170 (maximum)
