Ans) For company A Cost function is C 1 (x) = $(25 + 0.05x), (where x is the duration of monthly calls in minutes. For Company B Cost function is C 2 (x) =$ 50
Both companies will charge the Same amount for C 1 (x) = C 2 (x)
Thus, 25 + 0.05x = 50
 X = 25/0.05 = 500 minutes = 8 hours 20 minutes
Hence, both companies charge the same amount when the total duration of monthly calls is 8
hours 20 minutes.
