 Question 500084: The Cost of a taxi ride begins with a flat fee,and then you are charged an additional amount for each mile. Write an equation to represent the total cost of the taxi ride.Answer by oberobic(2304)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!TC = total cost VC = variable cost per mile FC = fixed cost . TC = FC + VC per mile * number of miles . In a more "algebraic" way of writing, . t = total cost f = fixed cost v = variable cost m = miles . t = f + v*m .
