Answer:

b) If you had called, we would be happy. Both the conditional clause and the main clause use a pluperfect subjunctive verb, which makes this a past contrafactual condition. To translate the past contrafactual, you use "had" before the verb. The ending "-mus" in the main clause verb shows that "we" is the proper subject, not "I"

Question:

Answer:

3.2x + 6= 57.20 Set up an equation, setting the total cost equal to the rate per mile times the miles traveled, plus the tip. 3.2 x = 57.20 - 6 Subtract the tip from the total cost 3.2 x = 51.20 Divide by the cab fare rate x = 51.20/3.2 x = 16 The airport is 16 miles from Mario's house.
