    We have $175. We automatically lose $150. Cause we rented for 1 week. We have $25 to drive with. Every mile we drive, it costs $0.25

    Hold on. \[$175 - $150 = $25\] \[$25 \div $0.25 = 100\]

    Okay. So I should have ignored the formula it gave?

    Oh gosh it didnt copy it... A car rental agency charges $150 per week plus $0.25 per mile to rent a car. The total cost, C, for the renting the car for one week and driving it x miles can be modeled by the formula C=0.25x+150 . How many miles can you travel in one week for $175?

    C is our total cost. Which was given to us at the end "$175".

    So rewright it and make it look like an equation 0.25x + 150 = 175

    Since we already solved it we know x = 100.

    0.25(100) + 150 = 175

    Which makes 25 + 150 = 175

    x is still 100. Either way you solve it.
