A Tour of New York
T. Mercer - 1st period

I have never been to New York, and I believe that a trip there would allow me to experience an area and culture of the United States I have not been exposed to.  It is called the melting pot of the world because of the diverse cultures and people present in the area.  I feel like I have been confined by only experiencing life in Rocky Mount, North Carolina so I would like to adventure outside of my comfort zone to enjoy other places.

It is 390 miles from Rocky Mount, North Carolina to New York, New York.

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(390)

C = 9.99 + 78

C = 87.99

The total cost to rent this car from Enterprise for a day for travel to New York, New York would be $87.99.

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(390)

C = 18.00 + 19.50

C = 37.50

The total cost to rent this car from National Car Rental for a day for travel to New York, New York would be $37.50.

National Car Rental company would be the better deal for me to rent a car to travel to New York, New York.  It is $50.49 cheaper than Enterprise.

As evidenced by the graph, at 53.4 miles both car companies would charge $20.67.
