In total you have $20. Base fare of taxi is$5.

Per mile cost is $2.50. Your total cost is $5+2.5x$ where x is the number of miles. Since you're on a budget of maximum$20, the cost should be less than or equal to $20. We can write: $5+2.5x\leq 20$ To find how many miles we can write, let's solve the inequality: $5+2.5x\leq20\\2.5x\leq20-5\\2.5x\leq15\\x\leq\frac{15}{2.5} \\x\leq6$. This means 6 is the maximum number of miles you can ride with$20.

$2.5x+$5.00=$20 x=6 2.5(6) + 5 15 + 5 20 The answer is 6 9. ingle75 says: $2.50d+5\leq 20$ Step-by-step explanation: Let d represent distance in kilometers. We have been given that a taxi ride costs$2.50 per kilometer, so the cost of d kilometers would be $2.50d$ dollars.

We are also told that ride costs a fixed charge of $5, so total cost of d kilometers would be $2.50d+5$ dollars. You have$20 to spend on taxi fare, so the total cost of riding d kilometers should be less than or equal to 20.

We can represent this information in an inequality as:

$2.50d+5\leq 20$

Therefore, our required inequality would be $2.50d+5\leq 20$.

d = 6 km

Step-by-step explanation:

The total cost of a ride includes a fixed, up-front cost and a variable cost:

C(x) = $5.00 + ($2.50/km)x, where x is the number of kilometers covered.

Setting C(x) = $20, we get:$20 = $5 + ($2.50/km)x

which needs to be solved for x:

$15 = ($2.50/km)x

Dividing both sides by (\$2.50/km) yields

6 km = d
