(1) Mel's monthly disability benefit from his employer is $1,600
(2) Mel's monthly salary exceeds $2,500



Monthly Salary = S
Mel's monthly disability benefit = D and
amount of his monthly salary in excess = E

Given:
\(S = D + E\)
\(D = 1200 + 40%*E\)

If we can find E, we can find Total Salary S.

Option 1:
It is given that \(D = 1600\)
\(1600 = 1200 + 40%*E\)
\(E = 1000\)
Hence, \(Salary = 2000+1000 = 3000\). Option 1 is sufficient.

Possible Answers : A or D

Option 2:
Mel's monthly salary exceeds $2,500[/quote]

So , Monthly salary can be 3000, 4000, or any value. No definite answer.
Eliminate D.

Final Answer is A
