Question: A rental car company charges $53 per day to rent a car and $0.08 for every mile driven. Rashaad wants to rent a car, knowing that: He plans to drive 475 miles. He has at most $250 to spend. Use the drop-down menu below to write an inequality representing � d, the total number of days Rashaad can rent the car while staying within his budget.
Let d be the number of days Rashaad is renting the car. The cost of renting the car for d days and driving 475 miles can be given by: Cost = 53d + 0.08(475) × d Cost = 53d + 38d Cost = 91d To stay within the budget of $250, we can write the inequality: 91d ≤ 250 Solving for d: d ≤ 250/91 d ≤ 2.747 d ≤ 2 (approx.) Therefore, Rashaad can rent the car for at most 2 days and stay within his budget. The inequality representing this situation is: 91d ≤ 250 where d is the number of days Rashaad can rent the car.
