I'm using 'x' instead of '+' to make the answer less confusing.

The cost for the phone is $30, and that's a one time charge.

The cost for x months would be 20 times x, or 20x

So, the model for the total cost is C(x) = 30 + 20x.

x= 30 + 20(1)= 50

x= 30 + 20(3)= 90

If x = 1 month, the cost would be $50. For three months, it would be $90, and so forth.
