Answer:Step-by-step explanation:The monthly cost is C(t) = 6 + 0.05t, where t is the number of minutes talked.

Talking for 8 hours would cost C(t) = 6 + 0.05(8), or

$6.40;Talking for 20 hours would cost C(20) = 6 + 0.05(20), or

$7.00.The effective cost per minute in the first case is $6.40/8 min =

$0.80/min, and that in the second case is $7.00/20 min =$0.35/min
