    we start with 5.60 and add 2.05 for each mile, So we could create a function for this. \[p(m)=5.60+2.05m\] where \(p(m)\) is the price for \(m\) miles. Then we need to solve \(p(m)=36.35\) So \[5.60+2.05m=36.35\] Can you solve for \(m\)?

    First subtract $5.60 from the total of $36.35, then you should get a nice $30.75. With $30.75, start dividing $30.75 with all of your options (15, 63.04, 12.13, and 13). With one of them, you should get 2.05 ($2.05), the money per mile number. That should be the answer. (P.S. Since this is math, check all the numbers to make sure you have the right one)

    When I say that should be your answer I mean the different number options (15, 63.04, 12.13, and 13)
