 Question 15684: A long-distance phone call costs \$0.70 for the first minute and \$0.39 for each additional minute or portion thereof. Write an inequality representing the number of minutes a person could talk without exceeding \$4.Answer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x = number of minutes talked Total cost of a phone call of x minutes = .70 + .39(x-1) If total cost does NOT exceed (meaning less than or equal to!) \$4.00, then you have .70 + .39(x-1) <= 4.00 R^2 at SCC
