 Question 24840: Sunshine truck rentals rents a truck at a daily rate of \$57.99 plus \$.48 per mile. City Rentals rents the same size truck at \$58.95 plus \$.46 per mile. For at what mileage is the cost the same?Answer by stanbon(57253)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let number of miles driven be "x". Sunshine will charge 57.99 + 0.48x City Rent will charge 58.95+0.46x EQUATION: Set the charges equal to one another and solve for "x": Multiply thru by 100 to get rid of the decimal amounts: 5799+48x = 5895+46x 2x = 96 x=48 miles (cost the same for driving 48 miles) Cheers, Stan H.
