The total cost (

c = 120 + 60n

If the total cost was $360, for how many days was the sailboat rented?

*c*) in dollars of renting a sailboat for*n*days is given by the equationc = 120 + 60n

If the total cost was $360, for how many days was the sailboat rented?

c = 120 + 60n {given equation}

360 = 120 + 60n {substituted the total cost, 360, for c}

240 = 60n {subtracted 120 from each side}

n = 4 {divided each side by 60}

360 = 120 + 60n {substituted the total cost, 360, for c}

240 = 60n {subtracted 120 from each side}

n = 4 {divided each side by 60}

**The sailboat was rented for 4 days.***Ask Algebra House*
