What was the amount of money donated to a certain charity?

(1) Of the amount donated, 40 percent came from corporate donations
(2) Of the amount donated, \$1.5 million came from noncorporate donations

My only query in this question is "Are we assuming that there can be no third category such as 'Semi-corporate','Govt. depts' etc." ?

Because by assuming that there are only 2 types of donations

1.corporate
2. non-corporate

we can reach to answer this question.

All donations are either corporate or noncorporate, how else? Corporate and noncorporate donations could also be made up from different sub-groups but this doesn't matter, is it?

Hi Bunuel

On the contrary , I would like to ask you under which section of donations will "Semi-corporate donations " lie?

Not under any one of them , so how can we assume that there are only 2 types ?

Is semi-corporate corporate? No, so it falls into noncorporate.

Consider this, are there any other colors but black and non-black? It's as simple as this.
