Rita's company reimburses her expenses on food, lodging, and conveyance during business trips. The company pays $55 a day for food and lodging and $0.45 for each mile traveled. Rita drove 300 miles and was reimbursed $2,335. 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 Rita spend on this trip?

    Part A 2335= 55x + (300 x 0.45)

    Part B You would use the multiplication property of equality to multiply 300 and 0.45 together, the subtraction property of equality to take 135 from 2335, and you would use the division property of equality to divide 2,200 by 55.
