1. cost1 = .02m + 25
cost2 = .03m + 15

when is cost2 < cost1 ?
.03m + 15 < .02m + 25
.01m < 10
m < 1000 , so for any time less than 1000 minutes, the second plan is cheaper

2. 1. Y = 20 + 0.02x.
Y = 15 + 0.03x.
x = minutes used.

2. 15 + 0.03x < 20 + 0.02x.

3. 0.03x - 0.02x < 20 - 15,
0.01x < 5,
X < 500 minutes.
