Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.050+.01t<35+.05t subtract .05t from both sides 50.04t<35 subtract 50 from both sides .04t<15 divide both sides by .04 (and flip sign as rule because of division by a negative number) t>375 So plan B is cheaper than plan A when you send more than 375 texts... 35+0.05t>50+50+0.01t @Mavckenzie
