Call the fixed fee per hour F and the call out fee C. Then you are given that

3F + C = 140, 4F + C = 170

From this we find F = 30, C = 50.

This seems to match with your answer (if I interpret correctly what you mean), so you are correct.

@Rubies, since you didn't show any of your work, it appears that you are trying to answer the question by guessing, which isn't a good strategy. The approach shown by @Math_QED, which uses a system of equations, is a much better way to work on these kinds of problems.
