### Rental Truck

February8

**The McCall family wants to rent a truck for a day. They have a choice of two truck rental companies. **

** Company A: $30 per day plus $0.60 per mile**

**Company B: $55 per day plus $0.35 per mile**

**I am offering my advice as to which company the McCall’s should pick. What other information would be important for me to know in order to give them the best advice possible? Explain why I need the information you are suggesting!**

B) because it won’t add up to as much as a will

Is there enough information to make this decision?

you would also need to know how many miles they went. you would need to know that because then would know how much they actualy paid aside from how much they paid for the one day they rented it .

Well I think company A is better because if you add $30 dollars just for the truck and than 0.60cents for the mIles basicall or everything thatwould most likely equal 55 dollars or less so comany b is not tha good because the truck is gonna cost $55 and the you still have to add the 35 cents, yes the cents per mile are cheaper but if you add them together you are just spending more money then you need to. if theres a better deal thats for less money and provides the same thing you are most likely to get company A.

Is there enough information to make this decision?

how many miles will I be traveling

how many miles that you are driving because then you would be in some under standing of how much you will pay for the miles all together say you were driving 100 miles you would multiply the amount of miles that you are driving by the amount of money it costs per mile. for 60 cents per mile al together you would be paying $60 plus the $30 per day you would pay $90 in all. for 35 cents you would pay $35 plus the $55 per day you would still pay $90.

company a 30.00 dollars plus 60 cents equals 30.60 in total

company b 55.00 plus 35 cents equals 55.35

it would cost more if they went with company b and it would cost less if the went with company a you should rent offer your advise and tell them to go with company a 😉

Is there enough information to make this decision?

i think the company A is better becasue its less money and i know that becasue i added 30 by 60 and i got 90 and in company B i added 55 by 35 and 100 dollars so that means company A is better becasue its less money

Is there enough information to make this decision?

COMPANY(A);=50PER MILE

COMPANY(B);= 157.14 MILES

THANK YOU I TRIED

🙁 :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:)

Is there enough information to make this decision?

company A) if you mutiply $0.60 and $30 and then divide by the days they want to rent the truck you will get $18 as you answer

company b) if you mutiply $55 and $0.35 then divide by the number of days rented you will get $19.25. so the best company to rent from is company a because it charges less money for one day.

Is there enough information to make this decision?

well, if you are suggesting which company you think is best to the Mcalls then you should probably include information like if the Mcalls are planning to move for three days at the most two days at the least then you should probably include the price range of the amount of days it would cost. Second, if the Mcalls ask you why you think this company is the best and why this company is so special. Lastly, if the Mcalls asks you will you help them move the stuff with them then you should politely say “yes” instead of saying ” Dude no way! my back is killing me and I don’t want to help you!”. 😉

Make sure you read the question carefully!

I would add how big the rental truck is becuase i want to know if it is big enough or if it is too small. I would also like to know how much insurance would cost just incase i get in a car crash i want to know this becuase if i getr hurt how much would the insurance cover ? I would also like to know what condition the rental car is so i know if it will break down on me or if it wont. Lastly i would like to know if the truck is stick or automatic so that if i cant drive stick i would get the rental truck that is automatic.

I need to know the amount of miles they are going to be going, in order to plug that number into the equation, to figure out the best deal.If you can’t find out how many miles they are going, then you can’t find a unit rate.

company A is a better company because it lasts longer than company B because i divided 30 and 60 and got 2 then i divided 55 and 35 and i got 1 so i think that company A is a better deal

Is there enough information to make this decision?

you would have to know how many miles there going to drive to solve the problem . you need the information i’m providing soyou know how to solve the problem.

The info I suggest is how many miles you are going because one price could be cheaper if it’s only 10 miles and it would be more expensive if it’s 40 miles so that is what information is needed or else I can’t find the better buy.

Some very important information you should know is how many miles the McCalls are driving so the cents per mile could count for something. That would be the best advice possible. P.S. company A is better.

I believe that Company A has a better offer because I noticed that if you divide 60 by 2 you will get 30 and if you divide 55 by 2 then you will get a smaller number than 35. So they are charging you a little more than half of 55. In other words, Company A is cheaper than Company B.

Is there enough information to make this decision?

for 1, doesn’t it depend on how far they are going?

well, i don’t have an answer yet so lets find out!

well if they are having a rental for only 1 day, all we have to do is add.

Company A:

30.00

+ 00.60

————–

$30+ adding $0.60 every mile

Company B:$50+ adding $0.35

im coming in for lunch i think this needs more information. it depends on how far they are going. if they are going , lets say 12 miles, then i could answer it but im coming in to get some help. ill make a different comment if i understand later on.

Well, you are supposed to know how many miles the houses are. Also, how long will they have the rental truck. Company A offers 60 cents per mile, and let’s suppose that the houses are 12 miles away. Multiply 0.60 to 12 and get 7.20 dollars. So per each day, they’ll pay 7.20 (in miles). Let’s also suppose that you’ll rent the truck for 2 days. Multiply both 30 and 7.20 by two and get a total of 74.40 dollars. Let’s do the same to Company B if your going to rent for two days and the houses are 12 miles apart. In total you’ll pay 118.40 dollars. So I highly recommend the McCall family to choose Company A if they’re going to move.

If i were giving advice to the McCalls family I would tell them the all day price of Company A is $30 and Company Bs all day price is $55 because they need to know which is cheaper. I would also tell them that the price per mile is for Company A is $0.60 and that Company Bs price per mile is $0.35 because they need to find out the price to travel depending on how far there new house is. Then I would tell them to add the price per mile to the price per day because they need to find out which is cheaper all together.

company a.

Is there enough information to make this decision?

i sugest company B becaise there is a price for 55$ for 1 day the question is WHO IS GOING TO TAKE TWO DAYS T MOVE ALSO the mile price is only like 40 ents

Is there enough information to make this decision?

the answer would be b the reason for that would be because company b may be 55 dollars per day but its only 35 cents per mile so that is the cheapest deal

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

In order for you to decide which company is better you would have to know how many miles they will be driving so, you can figure out the total cost. For example, if they had to drive 254 mi. for a total of three days and they chose company A, the total cost would be $242.4 If they went with company B the total cost would be 253.9. If that’s how long and how far they had to drive then company A would be a better deal.

1. A is better at first because it is a cheaper deal then B unless thy go on a far trip.

2. B is better for different reason because if they go on a long trip there miles would be cheaper unless they go on a short trip then A would be better.

3. To check how many revues there are on that company.

I think that the best company to choose is Company B because Company B has More amount to pay for a whole day but the gas prices are lower than Company A……. 🙂 I also think that that company A is better because $0.60 cents could add up to more money by the mile and also because the car is a truck……. 😉

Also, is there a certain amount of miles??

Is there enough information to make this decision?

how far there going, it is important because it extra money per. mile.

first you would want to know how many miles you are going to put on it next you are going to want to know how many gallons it holds and u are going to want to know how many days you need the car you need this information to help you find out which company you will get the better deal with

It depends on how far they go and if its a certain distance the it might be a better deal

they should rent company a because its cheaper because it comes with a extra 25 miles and its 25$ cheaper.

Do you have enough information to make this decision?

How much does it cost if you use the truck for an hour

Don’t you already have this information?

You would need to know the distance(how many miles) they are going. You need this information because each rental company has a different price per mile plus what their daily charge is. Many people would probably say that company A would be the cheapest because they charge less per day but the Mccall family might spend more money depending on how far they are going.

I think another piece of information you need to know is how many miles they drove … we know that they are going to rent the truck for a day so witch is $30 for company A and $55 for company B so you need to know how many miles they drove in total , but you cant figure that out unless you know how many miles it drove so that is why i think u need that’s important to know 🙂

The most important factor is number of miles the truck is driven. Company A is better for traveling a short number of miles but Company B is better for traveling a long number of miles. If the truck drives under 120 miles, Company A would be cheaper. If the truck is driven over 120 miles, Company B would be cheaper.

The other information you would need would be how many miles they are driving so you could find the total amount of money it would cost. You couldn’t find the better buy without the total amount of miles you would drive. You could say that A would be the better but but you would never know which one until you try each of them.

My advice to the McCall’s would be that Company A is better because Company B is expensive in the first place, Company A is super cheap and the $ per mile isn’t even doubled from Company B’s, so either way, Company A is better than B.

Is there enough information in the problem to make this decision?

The McCall family should go with company A because 0.60(24)+30=44.4 and company B has 0.35(24)+55=63.4.

Is there enough information in the problem to make this decision?

Some important information needed to give the best advice is that company A costs $25 less than company B. Also that Company A would only cost around $30-$40 for a day since it only costs $1 per mile. You need this information so you will be able to explain why company A costs a lot less than company B per day.

What information is missing from the problem?

The information that I should know to tell the McCall’s is the distance that the truck is going because one truck company is charging more per mile than another company, so if they are driving less than 150 miles they would be better off with Company A and if they are driving more than 150 miles they would be better off with Company B, because the distance is important because of the cost per mile.

I think the McCall’s should pick the company A but I need some more information to make my final advice the information I need is how many days they drive the car and how many miles they’re driving I need this information because then I could see how much it will cost for each company’s for that amount of days and miles then give my advice for which one is better.

Find the scale unit to find the cheaper, better, or good in range . So A.) Is .50¢ B.) Is 1.57 per day + per mile . You need that information because you should know what deal gives you a better reliable price.. So you find the cheapest better one .

What information is missing from the problem?

Also i would also add how many days they are going to need the truck becuase if i need the truck for four days i would need to know which company has the better deal for the days i will use the truck…. I would also like to know how many miles i would be going so i could choose the best company for the mile deal.

You need know 2 more things. First we need to know for how many days you need to rent the truck. Then you need to know how far you will be going with the truck. Then you can compare the two deals.

some of the iformatiom youay also want to know that goes with this problem is the tax it takes to rent a truck for a day. You would want to know this information because if you rent a truvk and dont know the tax then it may beore than you though. ANOTHER peice of information you would want to know before renting one of these tucks is how mucb miles you will be taveling because if you trave lots and lots of miles the price is going to go up a lot.

company a

Is there enough information in the problem to make this decision?

How many miles they’re driving would be good information because of the extra amount of money per mile; it would be hard to find out which company is cheaper without that information because the cheaper company per day charges more per mile.

30 + 0.6x = 55 + 0.35x

0.6x = 25 + 0.35x

0.25x = 25

x = 100 miles break even point

Make sure you read very carefully what the problem is asking you to solve.

Company A would be better because if in 1 day they went five miles. I multiplied 0.60 and 0.35 by 5 and got 1.75 and 3.00, now you may think wow 3.00 is a lot for only 5 miles but when you add that to the 30.00 you get 33.00. When you add the 1.75 to the 55 which is company B you would end up paying 56.75. So Company A is much cheaper.

The information that would be important for you to know in order to give the best advice possible is knowing how many miles that the McCall family is going. The more miles the McCall family is going, the faster the amount of money will go up that they have to pay for Company A per mi..

The McCall’s should choose Company A because they are cheaper. My example is that if they travel 100 miles for 2 days. Company A total cost is $120 because I multiplied $30 times for 2 days and I got $60, then I multiplied 0.60 per mile for 100 miles and I got $60. I then added it up and I got $120. Company B is $145 because I multiplied $55 for 2 days and I got $110, then I multiplied 0.35 per mile for 100 miles and I got $35. I then added up the numbers and I got $145 for Company B and they were more expensive.

Another good information is that how far is the McCall family moving. like if they are going to another state company B has the cheaper price per mile $0.35. if the McCall family are moving close than company will be good per day only $30.

What information is missing from the problem?

we would how far there traveling (miles) if they were traveling 10 miles company B would be the best offer because 4 cents equal one mile.

We would need to know how far there traveling(miles) if the were traveling 10 miles company B would be the best offer because 4 cents equal one mile.

Company A would be the best because you would dived $30 and $0.60 and got $50 and went you dived $55 by $0.35 you get $157.14 that why Company A would be better than Company B.

Is there enough information in the problem to make this decision?

I would pick company b because they has the cheapest rate because the cents per mile is the cheaper rolity . fifty is not that much money per day.

Is there enough information in the problem to make this decision?

company b is better

Is there enough information to make that decision?

the 2 things that you would have to know are how many miles they plan to go , and how many days they want the truck 4 (:

The company that they can get is going too be company A because is in a lower price and is a $0.60 per mile

Is there enough information to make this decision?

To find out the best deal I had to come up with a random amount of miles they would travel to see what price was lowest and a better deal . The extra information I would tell them is that yes it looks like company A is the better deal because the cost per day is lower then company B but their is also cents per mile and it a low price for both but that small amount can add up pretty fast. So the random amount of miles I chose was 5 miles , so for company A I would multiply 60 cents by 5 and I got 3 dollars plus 30 is $33 dollars . for company B I would multiply 35 by 5 and get $1.75 plus $55 dollars I would get $56.75 . So company A has the better deal in renting a truck for the day .

They should choose company B because for every hour you pay $55.35 unlike company A where you pay 90$

Is there enough information to make this decision?

The other information that would be important is how far the truck can travel per mile or per gallon of gasoline. The McCall family should need to know that because if they are going to travel a long distance then they should know how much the truck will travel on one gallon of gasoline. It is important to also know how fast the truck can travel per mile because if it cost money to travel per mile, and the truck does not go very fast, then they will be paying more money for traveling less distance.

What information is missing from the problem?

If you were giving advice you should also include the capacity of the trucks so they can see which obe fits more things

What other information do they need to make the best financial decision?

In order to give better advice to the McCalls you need more information like, how much they would pay in all because they need to see which is worth it also they need to know how often they need to stop for gas and if they need to fill the tank of gas before returning it so they can know the exact total and find the better deal.

You would also need to knownhow many days and how many miles you are going to find the best deal.

For example company A is cheaper per day but more per mile than company B.

If you are renting for only one day and going 25 miles then company A is $30 + (25+.60) = $45.00

Company B is $55+(25x.35) = $90

COMPANY A is cheaper

But if you are renting for 3 days and going 1000 miles then

Company A is ($30×3) +(1000 x .60) = $690

Company B is ($55×3) + (1000 x .35) = $515

So company B is cheaper in this example

In order to give the best advice you need the information for days and miles. The information above does not provide days/miles.

The important information that is missing is how many miles they are traveling. you need this information to multiply the $.60 per mile and the $.35 per mile to complete the total cost of the rentals.

*You would need to know the distance that they are traveling (that would be most important) because the $30 a day truck is 0.60 cents per mile and the $55 a day truck is only 0.35 cents per mile, so we need to know how many miles they will be traveling.

*You would need to know the weight of the load in the truck, because the heavier the weight, the more gas you will use on either truck.

*You would need to know how many miles you could drive a day, before stopping to rest, so you would know how many days you would need the truck, because there is a price difference of $25 a day between trucks.

Those are the most important reasons.

A.) because you get a cheaper cost per day and the family only has to rent a truck for ”one” day.

Is there enough information in the problem to make this decision?

The other important information to be known is the mileage because for longest distance travel company B is cheaper but for shorter distance travel company A is cheaper.

At 150 miles traveled :

Company A – 0.60 * 150 miles = $90 + $30=$120.00

Company B – 0.35 * 150 miles = $52.50 + $55 = $107.50

At 50 miles traveled :

Company A – 0.60 * 50 miles = $30 + $30 = $60.00

Company B – 0.35 * 50 miles = $17.50 + 55 = $72.50

You would also want to know what other people have said about their business and how good their trucks run. Because you would want to get them the best truck and make sure it’s not going to break down or have any troubles.

What piece of information is missing if I want to see how much the trip is going to cost?

some other information that they would need would be to make sure that it runs good long distance, and short distance. maybe what other people have commented on the truck before, as in if it’s a good one or not. you would want a truck that won’t break down while you’re driving it. also maybe it’s gas mileage, to see how much it’s been drivin.

Skylarr2014 company a is a better deal,

Is there enough information in the problem to make this decision?

You sold say that company a is best because they offer less for a whole day than company b also the cost for miles if you solve it with proportion of relationship it is less than company b.

Is there enough information in the problem to make this decision?

The other information they would nees it how good the truck goes

Oh no! Who does this comment belong to?

You have to concider it; the equtions would be: (.60*24)+30=$44.40 And (.35*24)+55=63.40

COMPANY A : is better because it has a lower price than COMPANY B

How many miles they were driving would be good information.

Oh no! Who does this post belong to?

I think the McCalls family should pick company A because they charge less than company B. If they pick company B there going to have to pay $24.75 more . I think that is important information that the McCalls family should know because I don’t think no one would want to pay $24.75 more just to rent a truck . The McCalls family should go with company A.

for company a you would add the $ 30.00 to 66 cents you would then divide by 12 miles and the answer is 2.55

for company you would do the samething and the answer would be 4.61 i would go with company B

b because it is 5 dollars less than a

Document A: If it is $30 per day over $0.60 per mile and i fyou find the unit rate then it will equal $5 per day over $0.10 per mile, so if they were to move it would depend on the amount of day it would take for the family to move then multipy that by the unit rate of the first price given to us.

Document B:If it is $55 per day over $0.35 per mile that would equal $15 per day over $0.10 per mile, so it would depen don how many days it eould take the family to mmove then multiply that by the unit rate from the price given to us.

In conclusion my advise would be to use the truck of company A because it pays less for more miles than the other. What they should know is the unit rate so they will be able to find out how much it would cost they to rent or use the truck.

i chose B. choice 19.25

You also need to know how many days they’re going to use the rental truck and how many miles they plan on driving for. If they are driving for a lot of days then Company A. might be better since it is less money per day but if they plan on driving for a short distance then Company B. is better since it is less money per mile.

I think that b is better because it has the lowest unit rate.

B, 19.25.

Company B is the better deal because is cheaper for more mph

The best advice that I could is that you would need to know how May miles there is to drive,you need this information to solve the problem

The best advice that I could is that you would need to know how Many miles there is to drive,you need this information to solve the problem

Company A: first multiply 30 by 0.60 and you get 18. So that’s $18.

Company B: first multiply 55 by 0.35 and yo get 19.25. So that’s $19.25.

Company A is better to use because it’s $1.25 cheaper.

A has a better offer because if you divide 60 by 2 youll get 30 if you divide 55 by 2 then youll get a smaller number then 30. So they’re charging you more then half of 55 so company a is better then b
