1. Given:

Fixed cost to rent a moving van = $23 Additional cost =$7 per hour.

To find:

For $37, the maximum amount of time that a moving van can be rented for. Solution: Let the moving van be rented of t hours. Total cost = Fixed cost + Additional cost $$\text{Total cost}=23+7t$$ For$37, the total cost should be less than 37.

$$23+7t\leq 37$$

$$7t\leq 37-23$$

$$7t\leq 14$$

Divide both sides by 2.

$$t\leq 2$$

Since maximum value of t is 2, therefore the moving van can be rented for maximum 2 hours.
