Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The telephone company purchased 95 yards of wire for $1,235.                                                                                 Therefore, cost for one yard is $ 1235/95=$13                                                                                                              The additional yards=285-95=190 

Cost of additional 190 yards is $ 13 x 190=$ 2470

Thus ,total cost is $1235+$2470, that is, $3705

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
