When visiting Orlando, Maria needs to rent a taxi to get from a hotel to a restaurant. The taxi company charges a flat fee of \(\$3.00\) for using the taxi and \( \$0.75 \) per mile. Write an equation in slope-intercept form that models this situation.


The slope-intercept form in this situation is given by y=0.75x+3 .
Step-by-step explanation:

Slope-intercept form: y=mx+b
Let’s substitute

total cost= y
number of miles= x
price per mile= m
flat fee= b
Here is the slope-intercept form with our data.

\(y= \$ 0.75 x+\$ 3\)
Therefore the slope-intercept form this situation is y=0.75x+3.
