How many miles per day will have to be driven for the cost of a car from the first agency to equal the cot of a car from the second agency? I need help figuring which one is my answer and how to set up the equatioin: [A] 145 miles per day [B] 1500 miles per day [C] 150 miles per day [D] 1450 miles per dayAnswer by nerdybill(6951)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!. Let x = miles driven on a single day . rental agency #1 (cost per day): 13 + .08x . rental agency #2 (cost per day): 16 + .06x . 13 + .08x = 16 + .06x .08x = 3 + .06x .02x = 3 x = 3/.02 x = 150 miles
