Elvin's monthly telephone bill is the sum of the charge for the calls he made during the month and a fixed monthly charge for Internet service. Elvin's total telephone bill for January was $48 and Elvin's total telephone bill for February was 76$. If Elvin's charge for the calls he made in February was twice the charge for the calls he made in January, what is Elvin's fixed monthly charge for Internet service?

A) $5

B) $10

C) $14

D) $20

E) $28

Bill = Fixed Charge + Charge of Calls madein Jan, Bill = Fixed Charge(Let, y) + Charge of calls made in Jan (Let, x) = $48

in Feb, Bill = Fixed Charge (Let, y) + Charge of calls made in Feb (Then, 2x) = $76

i.e. x+y = 48

and 2x+y = 76

Take the difference if two equations

i.e. (2x+y) - (x+y) = 76 - 48

i.e. x = 28

i.e. Fixed Monthly Charge, y = 20Answer: Option
