150 members (150*2 = \$300) + 1 member (\$3) = 151 members (\$303) 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

looking to multiply 2 * a number to equal 303. 303 is not divisible so we go down 1 because we want the minimum contribution per person of 2 dollars. someone will end up doanting 3 dollars.

C.
