Question

Anjali's Bikes rents bikes for $15.24 plus $2.61 per hour. Kathryn paid $30.90 to rent a bike. For how many hours did she rent the bike?

2 Answer

  • Kathryn rented the bike forĀ about 1.7 hours.
  • y = 2.61h + 15.24 would be the equation used to find the cost for any amount of hours.

    30.90 = 2.61h + 15.24 Solve for h by subtracting 15.24 from both sides
    15.66 = 2.61h Divide both sides by 2.61
    6 = h
    She rented the bike for 6 hours
