Set up and solve equations for each of the following business situations.
At TelePower Plus, longdistance phone calls to China cost $0.59 for the first minute and $0.25 for each additional minute plus an additional roaming charge of $2.50. If the total charge of a call to Beijing was $11.84, how long did the call last?
To calculate: The time of call last, if a long distance call is done by Tele Power plus from china to Beijing and it charges
Given Information:
A long distance call is done by Tele Power plus from china to Beijing and it charges

Step4: Solve the equation by rearrange the unknown values to the left side and known values to the right side of the equal sign.
Step5: Prove the solution by substituting the value obtained from step 4 in the equation formed in step 4 then check the left and right of the equation if, they are equal then the answer is correct.
Calculation:
Underline the keyword by using the table of key word.
Charge for first minute call plus charge for all next minutes multiply by the time of next minutes of call made plus roaming charges equals total charge.
Suppose that X be the time of addition call minutes.
Therefore, the time of the call last is
Consider the charges for first minute is
