Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Is the equation then asking "How much should she ask for per mile to get $450 by only 25 miles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is asking how many miles she need to ride to get $450 at $15 a mile

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, then let's find that first. Do you have any idea how we'd set up an equation to solve for that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, the important thing is to determine /what/ exactly the question is asking. Does it want to know how many miles she'd have to bike to make at least $450 at $15/mi?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1My mistake, I misread it. You're correct. So let's create an equation for the problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the equation would be 450/15=30? right???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's how you would solve for the equation. Just work backwards a little. Try to incorporate a variable, x, into it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Almost there! Now, work backwards just one more step! Isolate $450 please.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.015/450=X i dont know??? how??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Don't worry, just one step at a time. So you know that as an end result, you want the variable and the $15/mi to end up totaling $450, so we set that up on it's own, as (something) = $450. Now, let's add what we know. We're also told that they're willing to donate $15 PER mile, so what is the only unknown thing so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes! So let's set that as x. Thus we have our formula: (Price per mile) (quantity of miles) = (Total money made). Fill in what you can, please. Use x as the variable for what you don't know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Perfect! Now, there's your first answer! That's your equation. Now, earlier you were eager to solve that equation for x, so go ahead and do that, please.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Excellent! That's part A's equation and solution. Now, on to part B!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.025*X=450? she thinks she can only ride 25miles so she want to know how much her charity would have to pay her per mile if she rode 25 miles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how would i do the soultution is numbers

noseboy908

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The solution for A, assuming your teacher wants it in this form, would be x = 30 miles. For B, it'd be x = $18.00. Now, they may want you to elaborate too, so you'd have to verify how they want the solution presented to be sure.
