Part 1) The number of minutes in a month must be greater than 50 in order for the plan A to be preferable

Part 2) The number of minutes in a month must be equal to 50 minutes

Step-by-step explanation:

The question is

Part 1) How many minutes would Kendra have to use in a month in order for the plan A to be preferable? Round your answer to the nearest minute

Part 2) Enter the number of minutes where Kendra will pay the same amount for each long distance phone plan

Part 1)

Let

x —> the number of minutes

we have

Cost Plan A

Cost Plan B

we know that

In order for plan A to be cheaper than plan B, the following inequality must hold true.

cost of plan A < cost of plan B

substitute

solve for x

subtract 3x both sides

divide by 2 both sides

Rewrite

therefore

The number of minutes in a month must be greater than 50 in order for the plan A to be preferable

Part 2)

Let

x —> the number of minutes

we have

Cost Plan A

Cost Plan B

we know that

In order for plan A cost the same than plan B, the following equation must hold true.

cost of plan A = cost of plan B

substitute

solve for x

therefore

The number of minutes in a month must be equal to 50 minutes
