Journal Assignment Two-Step Equations

Name: Carla Pimentel

T-mobile charges $34.99 a month for phone service. They also charge $0.48 per minute for long distance calls. If Joshua's bill was $64.75, how many minutes of long distance calls did she make?

Part A - Write an equation that can be used to solve the problem.
0.48m + 34.99

Part B - Solve your equation and answer the question in a complete

0.48m + 34.99= 64.45

To solve this problem I have to first subtract 34.99 from 64.45 which equals 29.40. Then I divided 29.40 by .48 which equals 61.25. 61.25 was my final answer.
