X is the toal dollars of the tele call,
first call \$1.25
therfore (x-1) will be the cost of the additional miniute i.e. 0.32(x-1)

Total= 1.25 + (x-1)*0.32

therefore (e)

lets say 100 is the cost,
therefore markup is 20%of cost(100) i.e. 20
markup= selling + cost

20 = S +100
S=120

what is 20 % of 120, it is 16.66
