# The taxi fare in a city is as follows: For the first kilometre, the fares is Rs.8 and for the subsequent distance it is Rs.5 per km. Taking the distance covered as x km and total fare as Rs. y, write a linear equation for this information.

Total distance covered = x km. (Given)

Fair for 1st kilometre = Rs.8 (Given)

Fair for rest distance = (x  1) 5 (Since, it is given that except for first kilometre, the fare for subsequent distance is Rs 5 per km)

Total fair = 8 + (x  1) 5

y = 8 + 5x 5 (Total fare is given to be y)

y = 5x + 3

5x  y + 3 = 0
This is the required linear equation.
