Francisco took a taxi from his house to the airport. The taxi company charged a pickup fee of $4.70 plus $2.50 per mile. The total fare was $14.70, not including the tip. How many miles was the taxi ride?
x = miles of taxi ride
4.7 + 2.5x = 14.7 {pickup fee + price per mile x number of miles = total cost} 2.5x = 10 {subtracted 4.7 from each side} x = 4 {divided each side by 2.5} the taxi ride was 4 miles Ask Algebra House
