# ABC Telephone has a special long distance telephone rate. The first 10 minutes of a call cost $0.15 per minute. Each additional minute is only$0.05 a minute. How much would a 35-minute call cost?

The amount you currently owe is $10 \left(0.15\right)$, which will give you $1.5$. So you currently owe $1.5 for calling 10 minutes. Next, we have to figure out how much the remaining 25 minutes cost you. That is $25 \left(0.05\right)$. The answer to that is $1.25.
Now, add up $1.5 +$1.25 and you will get your answer, which is $2.75! A 35-minute call would cost $2.75.
