is it C.340?

15/100*Total Typewritten letter = 60

Total typewritten letters = 400
& typewritten letters that were not anonymous = 400-60=340

poorly worded question..

what I understood is

Assuming that all letters typewritten.. they contain ananymous and regular letters.

60 letters are ananymous and typewritten

15 percent of typewritten letters were anonymous =X and Y = 15% of total.

15/100* T=60
T= 400


letters that were not anonymous were typewritten = 400-60=340

I read it as there are 4 types.

Anonymous
Not Anonymous
Typewritten
Not Typewritten

No wonder I was so confused...
