Denise's cell phone plan is $29.95 per month plus $.10 per minute for each minute over 300 minutes of call time. Denise's cell phone bill is $99.95. For how many minutes was she billed?

therefore,

29.95 + 10x = 99.95

10x = 70

x = 7 minutes

total minutes billed is 300 + 7 = 307 minutes

so there,, :)
