 Question 68496: A car rental company charges \$50.00 per day plus \$0.80 per mile for a full-size car, and charges \$30.00 per day plus \$0.50 per mile for a compact car. Write an expression in simplest form that gives the amount, in dollars, that the charges for a full-size car exceeds the charge for a compact car, when each is rented for x days and y miles. Answer by Earlsdon(6294)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!"Could you please help me with this problem?" Lets write the expression for the cost of renting a full-size car. FS = (\$50.00)x + (\$0.80)y Now the expression for renting a compact car. CC = (\$30.00)x + (\$0.50)y The cost of renting the full-size car exceed the cost of renting the compact car can be found by: FS - CC FF-CC = (\$50.00)x + (\$0.80)y - ((\$30.00)x + (\$0.50)y) Simplifying this expression, we'll get: (\$50.00 - \$30.00)x + (\$0.80 - \$0.50)y or (\$20.00)x + (\$0.30)y
