Answer

$C(x)=0.28x+44$

Work Step by Step

In a cost function of the form $C(x)=mx+b$, m represents the marginal cost and b represents the fixed cost. Here, b= $\$ 44$ (fixed cost) and m= $\$ 0.28$ (the cost per mile). Let $x=$ the number of miles; $C(x)=$ the cost of renting for $x$ miles. $C(x)=0.28x+44$
