The first plan has an \$11 monthly fee and charges an additional \$0.14 for each minute of calls. The second plan has a \$20 monthly fee and charges an additional \$0.10 for each minute of calls. For how many minutes of calls will the costs of the two plans be equalAnswer by jim_thompson5910(28717)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First plan: y = 0.14x+11 Second plan: y = 0.10x+20 y = 0.14x+11 0.10x+20 = 0.14x+11 0.10x-0.14x = 11 - 20 -0.04x = -9 x = -9/(-0.04) x = 225 So the two plans are equal when 225 minutes are used.
