Samantha goes on a road trip; she has to drive 1,311 miles and 20 hours to get to her destination but she can only drive 10 hours and 500 per day. Her rental car charges $98 per day and the car goes 22 miles and requires 1 gallon to travel 22 miles. The car can hold 16 gallon of gas and gas costs $4.60 per gallon. Now write an equation for the amount you will spend on the vehicle Rental and Gas. If C is the cost, x is the amount of days, and g is the number of gallons needed for your trip. Now include the cost of the gas in your equation - replace g.
