    equation:
    cost = yt + x, where t is the number of hours
    case1:
    4y + x = 63 ---> x = 63-4y
    case2:
    6y + x = 87 ---> x = 87-6y
    so 63-4y = 87-6y
    2y = 24
    y = 12
    back into 1st equation:
    x = 63-4(12) = 15

    cost equation:
    cost = 12t + 15
    so for 11 hrs
    cost = 12(11)+15
    = 147
