Okay. The phone is free, so that does not cost any money.

The company charges you £10 each month and 5p for every text.

1) Let's see. We know it says "In May," which is just one month. Therefore, you will pay £10 for the month.

However, we are not done! You also send 11 texts and each text is 5p, so to find the cost we do $$5p\times11=55p$$.

$$55+10=65$$ so the total cost would be 65 pounds.

2) We do the same strategy. Again, we only need to pay for one month as it says "In June." Therefore, you will pay £10 for the month.

Again, we are not done! This time, you text a whopping 80 texts, but we still simply do $$5p\times80=160p$$.

$$10+160=170$$so the total cost would be 170 pounds.

3) This is really simple since you don't send any texts, you get only the monthly bill, £10.

4) We always need to pay £10 per month, so we know the "C" part of the equation is actually $$10C$$ .

For the texts, you always pay £5 per text, so the text part of the equation is simply $$5T$$.

Therefore the equation would be $$10C+5T$$

You are very welcome!
