**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at 10:47pmcost = .10(m-300) + 29.95 , where m is the number of minutes

so ....

.10(m-300) + 29.95 = 99.95

.1m - 30 = 70

.1m = 100

m = 100/.1 = 1000

She used 1000 minutes, but is only billed for any time over 300 minutes , look at (m-300) in the equation.

She was billed for 700 minutes

btw, the equation is only valid for m>300

if m<300

it would simply be

cost = 29.95
