    Answer: Mikel travelled 6 miles.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x represent the number of miles that Mike travelled.

    Mike took a taxi from his home to the airport. The taxi driver charged an initial fee of $6 plus $3 per mile. This means that if he traveled for x miles, the total cost, not including tip would be

    3x + 6

    The total fare was $24, not including the tip. This means that

    3x + 6 = 24

    3x = 24 – 6

    3x = 18

    x = 18/3

    x = 6
