Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1`Jose had to pay $194.51 when he returned the truck` so his total cost is y = 194.51

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = 14.99 + 0.96x 194.51 = 14.99 + 0.96x ... replace y with 194.51 solve for x
