All the cover letters will be used and since each envelope contains only 1 cover letter, 1,040 envelopes will be created. Each envelope will contain 2 coupons, so 1,040*2=2,080 coupons. The original value of coupons minus the number of coupons that will be used is 3,0002,080=920 coupons.
The correct answer is A.

since there are 1040 cover letters, therefore no:of coupons sent across with letters = 2 * 1040 =>2080 Remaining coupons = 3000  2080 = 920 Hence, A

Solution Given:• A certain restaurant advertises through mail • It has 1040 cover letters and 3000 coupons in stock • In its next mailing, each envelope will contain 1 cover letter and 2 coupons To find:• How many coupons will remain in stock after mailing, if all cover letters in stock are used Approach and Working:Each envelope will contain 1 cover letter • Therefore, if all cover letters are used, then number of envelopes = 1040 Also, each envelope will contain 2 coupons • Therefore, number of coupons used = 1040 * 2 = 2080 Hence, number of coupons that remain in stock = 3000 – 2080 = 920 Hence, the correct answer is option A. Answer: A

A. 920
B. 1,040
C. 1,500
D. 1,960
E. 2,080 Since all 1,040 cover letters were used, twice as many coupons, or 2,080 coupons, were used. Therefore, there are 3,000  2,080 = 920 coupons left. Answer: A
