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.
Enterprise car rental company will charge $9.99 per day plus $0.20 per mile to rent this car.
A function for renting a car from this company is C=9.99 + 0.20m, where C is total cost and m is the number of miles.
C = 9.99 + 0.20m
C = 9.99 + 0.20 (1249)
C = 9.99+ 249.80
C = 259.79
The total cost to rent this car from Enterprise for a day of travel to Honolulu, Hawaii is $259.79.
National Car Rental would be the better choice to select a car rental. It is $179.34 cheaper than Enterprise to rent a car for a day.
As evidenced by the graph, at 53.4 miles both companies would charge $20.67.
