(A) 43 (B) 44 (C) 49 (D) 50 (E) 51 Obviously club could not have 50 or more members, since$12*50=$600>$599. What about 49? If 48 members contributes $12 ($12*48=$576) and 1 member contributed the remaining$23, then the club would have is 48+1=49.

OR: $$12x\leq{599}$$ --> $$x\leq{49\frac{11}{12}}$$ --> $$x=49$$ (since x must be an integer).

Rounded off 599 to 600 (Its divisible of 12)

$$\frac{600}{12} = 50$$

Members should be atleast 1 less that 50

50-1 = 49

Let's first divide= 599 by 12 (the minimum amount each member could contribute) and then use the remainder to finish the problem.

599/12 = 49 R 11

This means that: 49 people x $12 + 1 person x$11 = $599 We see that if 49 members each contribute$12, someone would have to contribute the extra $11. Note that, since each member contributed at least$12, the $11 could not have come from an additional member. Therefore, the extra$11 must have been contributed by one (or more) of the existing 49 members. Regardless of who contributed the extra $11, the maximum number of members the club could have is 49.
