    so its
    y-35 = 0.01(x-1000)
    0 = 0.01x -y + 25?
    Yes that is a way to write it but rather have it in the form y=mx+c
    so y=0.01x+25 looks much more better

    Yes - though leaving it in the form y=mx + c is more conventional, or if you wished to write it as you have done, then x - 100y + 2500 = 0 is a neater way of writing it

    Yup!
    so the answers are for question
    a) m = 0.01 and y= 0.01x + 25
    b) $65 for 4000 minutes per month. (could you elaborate on this one? I don't know if I should write just $65 without explanation)

    You could write 4000*0.01 + 25 = y =65

    As joostan said, write out the solution to get to 65 and your good otherwise, no explanation needed, it simply said you need to find the cost, but it is best to show your working.
