budget is cheeper

Step-by-step explanation:

avis = \$500 for 4 days + \$42 for 140 miles

budget = \$460 for 4 days + \$35 for 140 miles

so the totals are avis with \$542 for 4 days and 140 miles and Budget with \$495 for 4 days and 140 miles so budget is cheeper

2. Answer: Budget has a better rate

Step-by-step explanation:

First we solve how much it cost to rent a car from Avis.

Because it is \$125 per day and he wants to rent the car for 4 days we solve:

\$125 x 4 = \$500 , then we need to find how much hes going to pay in miles.

.30 X 140= \$42. So the total for the rental from Avis is \$542.

Do the same for Budget

\$115 x 4 = \$460

.25 x 140 = \$35

so the total is \$495, this is less than \$542.
