the cost in dollars of writing M miles in the

00:21

taxi and here's potential answers number Wait So we have

00:28

to figure this thing out before we get scammed out

00:30

of her entire life Savings are there's A base price

00:33

is two Fifty for the ride plus about twenty for

00:35

each mile How do we express that In mathematical terms

00:39

while looking at the choice is the easiest way to

00:42

solve this one is to realize that the two fifty

00:44

is a base price and isn't gonna be multiplied by

00:47

anything Yes it's there it's going to be added to

00:49

whatever the mile cost is and choices bc and the

00:53

all have two point five getting multiplied just to be

00:56

sure Let's double check That is what we're looking for

00:59

01:02

make sense Because it's a buck twenty per mile than

01:06

the two point five is tacked on at the end

01:08

So yeah looks good in our final answer is a

01:10

and now we can get the cabby a formula of 00:01:12.817 --> [endTime] our own We can calculate oh us in medical
