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 3,000-2,080=920 coupons.

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.

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

Since there are 1040 cover letters so coupons used are double - 2080
Remaining coupons - 3000 - 2080 = 920
