A rental car company charges $77.48 per day to rent a car and $0.10 for every mile driven. Henry wants to rent a car, knowing that:

He plans to drive 250 miles.

He has at most $460 to spend.


What is the maximum number of days that Henry can rent the car while staying within his budget?

Let the number of days ==D

 

[77.48D  +  (.10 x 250) ]==460, solve for D

77.48D  +  25 ==460

77.48D ==460 - 25

77.48D ==435

D ==435 / 77.48

D ==5.614 days ==~5.5 days - assuming he drives the 250 miles in 5.5 days, which will cost him $451.14

 

Note: If it must be a "whole number" of days, then use 5 days.
