Under her cell phone plan, Enola pays a flat cost of $35 per month and $3 per
gigabyte. She wants to keep her bill at $46.40 per month. Write and solve an
equation which can be used to determine g, the number of gigabytes of data Enola
can use while staying within her budget.

Equation:46.40 = 35 + 3xThe 46.40 represents the goal, so it’s isolated. The thirtyfive is the base price so there’s no variable, and the amount of money paid for gigabytes is dependent on the amount of gigabytes bought/used, which will be represented by x, which $3.00 per each gigabyte.Answer:She can use 3.8 gigabytes (if you have to round to a whole number, it’s 3).
