A
$8.00

TC = $2.00 + $0.3 * 20

TC = $2.00 + $6.00 = $8.00

Explaination

The total cost of the phone call can be represented by the equation: TC = $2.00 + $0.3x, where x is the duration of the call after the first five minutes. In this case, x = 20. Substitute the known values into the equation and solve for the total cost: TC = $2.00 + $0.3 * 20

TC = $2.00 + $6.00 = $8.00

B $8.50

C $9.00

D $9.50
