An SUV costs $27,155 and costs an average of $0.18 per mile to maintain. A hybrid model of the SUV costs $33,715 and costs an average of $0.13 per mile to maintain. After how many miles will the cost of the gas-only SUV exceed the cost of the hybrid?

33715 - 27155 = difference in cost = 6560 dollars

Difference in cost per mile 18 - 13 = 5 cents/mile

6560/.05 = 131,200 miles until equal
