stephanie's phone plan charges her a price that is directly proportional to the number of minutes she talks. one month she talked 2010 minutes and paid $67. if she talks 1400 minutes, how much will she have
Google's first response: my blog.
Sorry, kids. When Google doesn't know the answer, it apparently turns to me. I'm flattered. Assuming the question concludes, "How much will she have to pay?" the answer is...
- ...less than $67, since she talked less, right?
- ...found by using fractions!
- ...sure to bubble up in the comment section, as I bet my readers will enjoy an algebraic diversion.
