25. Elaine's height is 67in. Determine, in terms of an inequality, those weights W that will keep her body mass index below 25.

76. A long-distance telephone call using Down East Calling costs 10 cents for the first minute and 8 cents for each additional minute. The same call, placed on Long Call Systems, costs 16 cent for the first minute and 6 cents for each additional minute. For what length phone calls is Down East Calling less expensive?

80. Bayside Insurance offers two plans. Under plan A, Giselle would pay the first $50 of her medical bills and 20% of a bill after that. Under plan B, Giselle would pay the first $250 of bills, but only 10% of the rest. For what amount of medical bills will Plan B save Giselle money?(Assume that her bills will exceed $250)
