Josh rented a truck for one day. There was a base fee of $16.95, and there was an additional charge of 82 cents for each mile driven. Josh had to pay $185.87 when he returned the truck. For how many miles did he drive the truck? m = number of miles he drove the truck (82 cents per mile) x (number of miles driven) + (base fee of 16.95) = (total of 185.87) 0.82m + 16.95 = 185.87 {substituted given values into formula} 0.82m = 168.92 {subtracted 16.95 from each side} m = 206 {divided each side by 0.82} he drove the truck 206 miles  Algebra House
