# Hanging out in Hawaii

### T. Mercer - Third Period

I would like to visit Hawaii because of its warm temperatures and beautiful waters.  Experiencing the way of life and culture there would be a unique and enriching experience.  Attending a luau and partying with Hawaiians would be fun and worthwhile.

From Rocky Mount to Honolulu, Hawaii, it is 1, 249 miles.

National Car Rental company will charge \$18.00 per day plus \$0.05 per mile to rent this car.

A function for renting a car from this company is C=18.00 + 0.05m, where C is total cost and m is the number of miles.

C = 18.00 + 0.05m

C = 18.00 + 0.05 (1249)

C = 18.00 + 62.45

C = 80.45

The total cost to rent this car from National Car Rental for a day of travel to Honolulu, Hawaii  is \$80.45.
