30 minutes is 1/2 an hour so 16 x 2 = 32 the phone charges at 32% per hour.

1. Multiply the number of hours by the rate and add the original 10% to that for total charge:

Y = 0.32h + 0.10

2. The phone charges at 16% every thirty minutes which is a half hour so you double the rate it charges to get the rate per hour. The phone charges at 32% per hour that it is charging.
