# Math Help - Application Problem

1. ## Application Problem

Applications A rental company charges $29 to rent a car for one day, plus$2 for every 100 miles (or portion of 100 miles) that it is driven. Graph the ordered pairs (m, c), where m represents the miles driven and c represents the cost. (Do this graph on paper. Your instructor may ask you to turn this in.) Find the cost if the car is driven 325 miles.

My answer I got was 35.50...what am I doing wrong...completly stumped!

The information tells me that you have a straight line relationship between c and m of the form:

c = 2m/100 + 29

(I'm assuming we only let m be exact multiples of 100 to keep it simple)
