C(m) = \$(40+3m)

Step-by-step explanation:

In this question, we are asked to write an equation representing the total cost of renting a truck by Makayla.

We proceed as follows;

Form the question, we can deduce that there is an initial cost of \$40 and a rental fee of \$3 per mile driven.

Now, we were made to know that she had driven m miles. We now calculate the rental fee for this m miles she has driven. Mathematically, we only need to find the product here. The rental fees for the m Miles traveled would be m * 3 = \$3m

Now the total cost C(m) would be = \$40 + \$3m or simply C(m) = \$(40+3m)
