So lets see without solving what do we know and what can we find

Cost to policyholders for a FP(family policy)

250 * IC (number of Individual coverage) + Cost of FP/year * FP = 257500 (a)

from 1, Revenue from IP is given, but we dont know anything about Cost of FP/year * FP

from 2, FP = 3* IC, these can take any values.

Combination, we are fixing the revenue earned from 250 * IC, enabling us to calculate cost to policyholders for a family policy

When substituted back in (a), we can get an expression in only one unknown

Once you realize this, answer is C
