A ride

A ride-share company charges $5.25 per ride for up to 4 passengers. It also charges an additional $0.50 per mile. Becca takes a ride from the airport, and it costs $9.00. She wants to figure out how many miles her house is from the airport.

Which equation represents the cost of her ride, based on the number of miles, m?

Correct answer:

m =  7.5 mi

Step-by-step explanation:

9.00=5.25+0.50 m  0.5m=3.75  m=0.53.75=7.5  m=215=7.5=215 mi=7.5 mi
