The equation C=mx+b can be used to model the monthly cost, C, of a cell phone plan where b is the flat monthly cost, m represents the cost in dollars per minute and x is the number of minutes used in the month. Choose a flat monthly rate and cost per minute and insert the values you have chosen for m and b into the equation. Then use this equation to find the total monthly cost, C, if 73 minutes are used.

C=.25(73)+B

C=18.25+80.00

C=$98.25 Monthly

The monthly cell phone costs are $98.25.

Is this what you wanted or something else?
