A car costs $50 per hour to rent but it also costs $245 per day. If you have a total of $695 per day to spend on it, how many hours will it be used?

50x + 245x = 695 → 295x = 695 = 2 21/59  days = 56 32/59  hours

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

let x be number of hours

50x + 245 = 695

50x = 695-245

50x=450

x = 450/50

x= 9

9 hours
