Nice, tertre !!!

Here is the second one.....

Let F be the fixed charge and M be the cost per minute of use

So...we have these equations

500M + F = 35

1500M + F = 55

Subtract the first equation from the second and we get that

1000M = 20 divide both sides by 1000

M = 20 / 1000 = 2 / 100 = 2 cents per minute

So...using either equation to determine F, we have

500 (,02) + F = 35

10 + F = 35 subtract 10 from each side

F = 25 (dollars)
