150 members (150*2 = $300) + 1 member ($3) = 151 members ($303) C VP Joined: 06 Jun 2004 Posts: 1053 Location: CA Show Tags 21 Nov 2005, 22:04 My answer is C. In order to maximize the number of guests, we need to minimze the contribution. So assume everyone contributed$2....

$2*150 =$300
$3*1 =$3

Greatest number is when every contributes the least amount. For this to happen, someone has to contribute 3 dollars, leaving 300 to be split among 150 members. So total # = 151 members.

Another C. To maximize, set the lowest possible limit at $2. 2*150=300 with one member donating$3.

For greatest no of people to come, most people should have given only 2. No of people who gave 2 is 302/2 = 151. One person would have given $3. So ans = 151 CEO Joined: 21 Jan 2007 Posts: 2739 Location: New York City Re: PS-Members [#permalink] Show Tags 29 Oct 2007, 12:51 cool_jonny009 wrote: A church collected exactly$303 from its members during a service.
