(cost per mile) = (total cost)/(total miles)

Substituting the variables defined in the problem statement, this is ...
P = C/M

2. alondrasanchezvillan says:

Cost per mile P- total cost (C) divided by total miles (M).
P= C/M

3. ginger1234 says:

Cost per mile = total cost / total miles
P = C/M

4. tanyiawilliams14991 says:

This is:    p = c/m
Since p is calculated by dividing c by m.
Hope this helps!

A relationship in algebraic equation form is, $P = \frac{C}{M}$

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the statement:

Cost per mile is calculated by dividing total cost by total miles.

Using the notation:

P represents the Cost per mile

C represents the total cost

M represents the total miles

"dividing" means $\div$

"dividing total cost(C) by total miles(M)" translated to $C \div M = \frac{C}{M}$

then;

Cost per mile(P) is calculated by:

$P = \frac{C}{M}$

Therefore, a relationship in algebraic equation form is, $P = \frac{C}{M}$

6. chrisk5429 says:

Cost per mile = total cost / total miles

Substituting the defined variables, this becomes
P = C/M

The relation ship is:
Cost per mile = Total cost / miles
P = C / m
