    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x represent the number of miles after which the cost of both options will be the same.

    You have two payment options. Option A is to buy a monthly pass for $30 and pay $0.80 per ride. This means that the total amount that you would pay for x miles if you use this option is

    0.8x + 30

    Option B is to pay $2.30 per ride. This means that the total amount that you would pay for x miles if you use this option is

    2.3x

    An equation to show after how many rides the cost will be the same would be

    0.8x + 30 = 2.3x

    2.3x – 0.8x = 30

    1.5x = 30
