(1) n = 10

We know the number of letter but we don't know the postage cost.

(2) Each of the letters required at least $0.32 postage.

At least 0,32$ postage, we still don't know the postage cost.

(1)+(2)

We know the number of letters but we don't know the postage cost.

Answer E

The answer is E. T
his question can be solved easily using Logic, no need to calculate:
in order to calculate the postage, we need to know the value of two variables: the cost of postage for each letter, and the number of letters (n). Even when combined, both statements do not provide this - since (2) only gives a range for n, and not a value.
