• \$3.00 per mile traveled up to 6 miles. After 6 miles it will cost \$5.25 per additional mile.
• Taxi!
• TAXI
• Where would you like to go? Please keep in mind that its \$3.00 per mile traveled up to 6 miles and after 6 miles it will cost \$5.25 per additional mile.
• Let's use the algebraic equation y=mx+b. The y represents the total cost. The m represents the cost to travel per mile after you reach 6 miles. The x represents the number of miles need to be traveled after you reach 6 miles. And the b represents the cost to travel the first 6 miles.
• I have to get to my mother's house that is 10 miles from here. How much will it cost me to travel? Let's make an algebraic equation.
• Now let's fill in the variables. You would replace the y with c because you are finding out the total cost. The mx will be replaced with 5.25(4) because you pay \$5.25 per mile you travel over 6 miles and I'm traveling 4 miles over 6 miles. And the b will be replaced with 18 because you pay \$3.00 per mile for the first six miles. When you put the equation together it will be c=5.25(4)+18.
• Now let's solve it. First you would times 5.25 by 4 to get 21. Then you would add 21 to 18 to get 39 making c=39.
• So to travel to my mother's house that is 10 miles from my current location it would cost me a total of \$39.00
• TAXI
• Okay ma'am, that will be---
• \$39.00. I know, I did the math. Here you go, thank you!
