They are simply asking how many phones came in after a certain amount of time in what appears to be an equations saying that 250 phones are coming in per hour.

In the equation n(t) = 250(t)

You would simply replace the t on both sides of the equation with the time and derive the number of phones that came in after a certain amount of time.

At 0 hours it would be n(0) = 250(0) = 0 phones

2 hours n(2) = 250(2) = 500 phones

n(10) = 2,500 phones
