The price to rent a car mostly has three parts, the rent, a charge per mile and the free mileage. That makes it difficult to compare the costs of two rental cars, the one car has a high rent but the price per mile is low, the other time there is a high price per mile, but also a high free mileage. Give the data for two cars for rent and the programme will calculate the costs for both given the number of miles driven.
