let 'x' be the number of miles Lemuel drive.

'n' be the number of days the truck is rented

--------------------

formulate the equation

since the rental for a day is 2000 then you'll have

2,000n --------2,000 multiplied by the number of days rented

........

since an additional payment of 150 will be charged for every mile then

150x --------for the payment as per mile is concerned

--------------------

you're given that Lemuel rented it for 2 days and that the bill is 5050

so you'll have it as

2,000n + 150x = 5050

where n=2

2000(2) + 150x = 5050

4,000 + 150x = 5050

150x = 5050 - 4000

150x = 1,050

x = 1,050/150

__x = 7 miles__
