Question

A three-wheeler scooter charges Rs 15 for first kilometer and Rs 8 each for every subsequent
kilometer. For a distance of x km, an amount of Rs y is paid. Write the linear equation
representing the above information.

Solution

Total fare of Rs y for covering distance of x kilometers is given by

    ` y = 15 + 8  (x - 1)`

 ⇒ `y = 15 + 8x - 8`

 ⇒  `y = 8x + 7 `

This is the required linear equation for the given information

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
