Question

Sara needs to take a taxi to get to the movies. The taxi charges $6 for the first mile, and then$2.75 for each mile after that . If the total charge is $14.25, then how far was Sara’s taxi ride to the movie ? Answers 1. thanhcong Answer: So the first step is to subtract$6 from 14.25.
We get 8.25.
divide 8.25 by 2.75, to find out how many miles (after the 1st mile) Sarah’s ride was.
8.25/2.75 = 3.  So 3 + 1 = 4.
The total mileage length to get to the movies was 4 miles.

The total miles it took to go to the movies is 4 miles (counting the first mile that cost \$6)
Step-by-step explanation:
Variables:
x = per mile
y = total
Equation:
y = 6 + 2.75x
Given:
y = 14.25
Work:
y = 6 + 2.75x
14.25 = 6 + 2.75x
2.75x = 14.25 – 6
2.75x = 8.25
x = 8.25/2.75
x = 3
