A taxi service charges an initial fee of $5 and every mile driven an extra $2 is added to the bill.

First, assign a variable.

Let x = the number of miles driven

For every mile driven, $2 are added to the bill. 2x
And a $5 fee.

2x + 5

Now we have our equation.

Now how much will the bill be if we got a ride 150 miles long?

Plug in the values.

2(150) + 5 =
300 + 5 =
305

So, the answer is $305.
