He is charged a redular rate of $1.60 per minute for 60 minutes it will cost$96. But if he pays a fee of $25 per month he gets a discount of 40% on the regular calls. SO the cost for him to make one hour call is 25 + 0.6 * 96 =$82.60

On the second plan he pays $1.60 for first 3 minutes and 0.8 for every minute thereafter cost = 1.6*3+0.8*57 = 50.40 Savings withe second plan = 82.60-50.40 = 32.20 This answer is not mentioned. Hi praetorian123 How did you get$13.40 ?
