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
