Sample Activity

4.0
(advanced)

In addition to Score 3.0, the student demonstrates indepth inferences and applications regarding more complex material that go beyond end of instruction expectations. 
Suppose a 5minute overseas call costs $5.91 and a 10minute call costs $10.86. The cost of the call and the length of the call are related. The cost of each minute is constant.
A. What is the cost, c, of a call of m minutes duration?
B. How long can you talk on the phone if you have $12 to spend?
