The Problem:You are moving and need a rental truck. The rental company you have chosen charges a $70/day fee plus $0.20 for every mile you travel. Write a linear equation that expresses the total cost y, where x represents the number of miles you travel. Graph this equation. Then choose a number of miles, x, you travel that day and find the total cost of renting the truck.

Problem SolutionWe are given two variables, i.e. y for the total cost and x for the miles we travel.Fixed cost= $70Charge based on miles travelled= $0.20 * x (each miles travelled)
