Name:Heidi Moreau

T-mobile charges $34.99 a month for phone service. They also charge $0.48 per minute for long distance calls. If Joshua's bill was $64.75, how many minutes of long distance calls did she make?

Part A - Write an equation that can be used to solve the problem.

Equation: $0.48m+$34.99 = 64.75

M= minutes of long distance calls

Part B - Solve your equation and answer the question in a complete

First, I subtract 34.99 - 64.75 which equal 29.76. Second, I wrote the equation .48m=29.76. Third, I figure out the opposite operation to find what m equals which is division .Fourth, i divide 29.76 ÷ 48 which equals 62.He made 62 minutes of long distance phone call.
