Journal Assignment Two-Step Equations

Name:Meily Herrera

T-mobile charges $34.99 a month for phone service. They also charge $0.48 per minute for long distance calls. If Joshua's bill was $64.75, how many minutes of long distance calls did she make?

Part A - Write an equation that can be used to solve the problem.

Equation: .48m+34.99=64.75

Part B - Solve your equation and answer the question in a complete sentence.

What I did is first is I knew that I had to put m by it self .Then to put m by it self I had to subtract 64.75-34.99 and I got 29.76.Then I still had .48m so I divide .48 ÷29.76 and I got 62.He made 62 minutes.
