Cabs’R Us charges $4.00 plus an additional $3.00 per mile for a ride. Call A Cab charges $2.00 plus an additional $4.00 per mile for a ride. At what distance? In miles, will the cost be the same for both companies.

x = miles when they equal

 

Rus charges    $ 4 + $3/mi  * x           call a    charges   $ 2 + $ 4/mi *x     now equate them

 

4 + 3x   =   2 + 4x

2 = x                                  at 2 miles the charges are equal
