Yellow Cab Taxi charges a $1.75 flat rate for a ride in the cab. In addition to that, they charge $0.45 per mile. Katie has no more than $12 to spend on a ride. At most, how many miles can Katie travel without exceeding her spending limit?

Let x be the number of miles:  12.00  =  1.75 + 0.45x

                                                 10.25  =  0.45x

                                                        x  =  10.25 / 0.45

                                                        x  =  22 miles (discard the fraction)
