Company B charges an initial fee of $100 for the rental plus$1 per mile driven. Let A represent the amount Company A would charge if London drives x miles, and let B represent the amount Company B would charge if London drives x miles. Write an equation for each situation, in terms of x, and determine the interval of miles driven, x, for which Company A is cheaper than Company B.

### What is an equation?

An equation is an expression that shows the relationship between two or more numbers and variables. An independent variable is a variable that does not depend on other variables while a dependent variable is a variable that depends on other variables.
Let A represent the amount Company A would charge if London drives x miles, and let B represent the amount Company B would charge if London drives x miles.
For company A:
A = 2.5x + 40
Also, for company B:
B = x + 100
For Company A to be cheaper than Company B:
2.5x + 40 < x + 100
x < 40
Company A charges would be cheaper than company B if the number of miles driven would be less than 40 miles
