Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh 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?
