    Answer: the monthly rate for the cell phone plan is $45

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let m represent the monthly rate that the cellphone company charges.

    A cell phone company charges $60 for a cell phone and a monthly rate to use the phone. This means that the total charge for using the phone for x months would be

    60 + xm

    If Regina will pay $1140 for a 24 month cell phone plan, it means that

    1140 = 60 + 24m

    24m = 1140 – 60

    24m = 1080

    m = 1080/24 = 45
