Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Payment made = 21574 cents

Out of this base fee = 1495

Hence balance paid for miles driven = 21574 - 1495 = 20,079 cents

Price of each mile driven = 97 cents

Number of miles driven = 20079/97  = 207 miles.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
