Start with `There was a base fee of $14.99`

then add on `additional charge of 96 cents for each mile driven` so if x = number of miles driven, then it costs an additional 0.96x dollars to drive x miles the total cost equation would be y = 14.99 + 0.96x agreed?

`Jose had to pay $194.51 when he returned the truck` so his total cost is y = 194.51

y = 14.99 + 0.96x 194.51 = 14.99 + 0.96x ... replace y with 194.51 solve for x
