When the fares of the two cab companies are compared, what is the cheaper fare for a 5-mile trip?

Let's find the fare that each company charges for a 5-mile trip.

On the ABC Cabs graph, there is the point (5, 12) .

(Also notice that the point (5, 10) is *not* on the graph.)

So when the number of miles is 5, the fare is 12 dollars.

ABC Cabs charges 12 dollars for a 5-mile trip.

On the Tary Taxicabs graph, there is the point (5, 9) .

(Also notice that the point (5, 8) is not on the graph.)

So when the number of miles is 5, the fare is 9 dollars.

Tary Taxicabs charges 9 dollars for a 5-mile trip.

9 dollars is the cheaper fare for a 5-mile trip.
