For what mileage is the cost the same? thanksAnswer by stanbon(57290)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Ace rents a compact car at a daily rate of 40.95 plus.47 per mile. Deuce rents a compact car for 43.95 plus.42 per mile. For what mileage is the cost the same? ---- Ace cost: A(x) = 40.95 + 0.47x --- Deuce cost: D(x) = 43.95 + 0.42x ---- Solve A(x) = D(x) for "x": 40.95 + 0.47x = 43.95 + 0.42x --- 0.05x = 3 x = 60 miles (the cost is the same if the car is drawn 60 miles) ============== Cheers, Stan H.
