    .12m + 35 < .22m + 25

    The five step-method is probably a term your teacher uses, and is not generally known.
    The number of steps shouldn't really matter.
    Here is the way I would do this ....

    .12m + 35 < .22m + 25
    -.1m < -10
    m > 100

    so for usage of more than 100 minutes, plan B would be better
    check with a number like 150 minutes
