Customers of a phone company can choose between two service plans for long distance calls. The first plan has a \$23 one-time activation fee and charges 10 cents a minute. The second plan has no activation fee and charges 15 cents a minute. After how many minutes of long distance calls will the costs of the two plans be equal? Answer by stanbon(57377)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let number of minutes of use be "x". Cost of plan #1 will be (2300 + 10x)cents Cost of plan # will be 15x cents EQUATION: Let cost of 1st plan = cost of 2nd plan: 2300+10x = 15x Solve for "x" Cheers, Stan H.
