# 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 a - Mathematics

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
