For Company X : Charge = 1.95 + (0.10 *t)
For Company Y : Charge = 5.95 + (0.08*t)
where t is the time in minutes
Both the values will be equal
=> 1.95 + (0.10 *t) = 5.95 + (0.08*t)
=> 0.02 t = 4
=> t = 200

Answer will be E
Hope it helps!

We can let m = the total number of minutes for long-distance calls for the month and create the equation:

1.95 + 0.1m = 5.95 + 0.08m

0.02m = 4

m = 200

Answer: E

Let x = the total number of minutes of long-distance calls

Telephone Company X's monthly charge for long-distance telephone calls is $1.95 plus $0.10 per minute
So, TOTAL charge = $1.95 + $0.10(x)

Telephone Company Y's monthly charge is $5.95 plus $0.08 per minute
TOTAL charge = $5.95 + $0.08(x)

For what total number of minutes of long-distance calls per month would the monthly charge for the two companies be the same?
We want to satisfy the equation $1.95 + $0.10(x) = $5.95 + $0.08(x)
Subtract 1.95 from both sides to get: 0.1x = 4 + 0.08x
Subtract 0.08x from both sides to get: 0.02x = 4
So, x = 4/0.02
= 400/2
= 200

Answer: E

Cheers,
Brent
