In this lesson, we learn how to solve word problems using systems of equations. For example, we look at a rental car company that charges a flat daily fee plus a per mile charge. By setting up two variables for the daily fee and per mile charge, we can use algebra to solve for these values. With careful calculations and using the addition method, we can find that the daily fee is $23 and the per mile charge is 21 cents. This lesson is a helpful guide for tackling complex word problems using systems of equations.
