Answeryou’ll be able to ride 14 miles.Step-by-step explanation:Your price is 29.50. if the first mile is 3.50 you’ll subtract that from the 29.50 you originally had. Now you’re left with 26.00. If you divide that by the two dollars you pay for every next mile you’ll have 13 miles. Now add that first mile and you have 14. Hopefully this made sense!
