    Sorry, there was an error in the previous response. You could respond there instead of a new one.

    The difference is $6, and each minute costs a difference of 3 cents.
    Therefore at $6/0.03=200 minutes, the two are equal. Under 200, XYZ is less expensive.

What is the greatest number of minutes that you can use in the second plan and still pay less than the first plan?
