    Answer:

    The call lasted 13 minutes

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In this question, we are told to find the number of minutes a call lasted.

    The initial amount on the card is $30 and after making a phone call just once, the balance went down to $28.83

    What was used would be 30 – 28.83 = $1.17 or simply 117 cents

    Now these long calls come at a cost of 9 cents per minute and we have a total of 117 cents here; the number of minutes is thus 117/9 = 13

    This means Kala spent 13 minutes on the call

    Answer: Her call lasted 13 minutes.

    Step-by-step explanation: Kala purchased a prepaid card with $30 worth of talk time. For long distance calls, the card is charged (deduction) 9 cents per minute.

    At the time Kala had only $28.83 left on her prepaid card, she had spent the following;

    Call charge = 30.00 – 28.83

    Call charge = 1.17

    Since the calls are charged in cents, we shall convert the amount spent to the appropriate unit, which is cents.

    Note that $1.17 equals 117 cents (1.17 x 100).

    A minute’s call would cost 9 cents, and this means a call that cost 117 cents can be calculated as follows;

    Charge per min = Total charge/9

    Charge per min = 117/9

    Charge per min = 13

    Therefore her call lasted for 13 minutes.
