Ismael is comparing cell phone plans before upgrading his phone. Ameri-Mobile offers a low activation fee, but a high monthly payment. Cell-U-Later offers a lower monthly rate, but the activation fee is higher. Create a possible algebraic expression for both Ameri-Mobile and Cell-U-Later that shows the amount paid after an unknown amount of months have passed. Justify how you created those expressions and identify what each term and factor represents in terms of the cell phone plans.

Something like this. We can use this to visualize what the phone companies are doing

Now, what are the variables we have to work with? (in the phone problem)

So there are two variables in the problem. One of them is money. Every month, you have to make a payment on the phone. Can you guess what the other one is?

so do you understand what it means to have an activation fee? When you activate something, like a switch or button, it is typically for the first time, done before anything else.

So an activation fee for a typical new phone you would buy is $99 or $199 for a two year contract. Have you ever been to a phone store and heard the sales people talk about things like this before?
