PLEASEE HELPP!!!! David's company reimburses his expenses on food, lodging, and conveyance during business trips. The company pays $60 a day for food and lodging and $0.65 for each mile traveled. David drove 600 miles and was reimbursed $3,390. Part A: Create an equation that will determine the number of days x on the trip. Part B: Solve this equation justifying each step with an algebraic property of equality. Part C: How many days did David spend on this trip?

    you subtract 390 from both sides, then divide both by 60 to get 50

    if 60X=3000, then X=3000/60, so X=50
