Here is a problem from OG:

A club collected exactly $599 from its members. if each member contributes at least$12, what it the greatest number of members the club could have?
(A) 43
(B) 44
(C) 49
(D) 50
(E) 51

I could not understand the solution in OG, hence asking here.

Thanks.

600USD/12 = 50

BUT the club collected only 599USD - we end up with 49 members - they could have for example payed 48 * 12 = 576 and one member (#49) payed 23 instead of 12.
