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.

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.

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.
