    Word Problem
    You are going on a vacation and you decide to rent a car rather than using your own. You want to rent the car for 3 days and after surfing the internet for specials, found the following which includes tax:

    Big Money Car Rental: $30 per day, unlimited mileage.

    Dippity Do Car Rental: $25 per day, $0.10 extra per mile after 200 miles per day.

    Set up the systems to describe these two situations.

    Let x = total miles in 3 days
    y = total rental car fee you pay for 3 days

    Hint: when x < 600, y =
    when x > 600, y =

    How should you make your decision to pick the rental company if you simply based on the price? :o

    Big money =30
    Dippity Do=25+.1(x-600)

    It depends on how many miles you would drive per day, without that information, there is nothing to test the two companies on.
