Q:

Courier charges for packages to a certain destination are 65 cents for the first 250 grams and 10 cents for each additional 100 grams or part thereof. What could be the weight in grams of a package for which the charge is $1.55 ?

A) 1155 B) 1145
C) 1040 D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1145

Explanation:

The weight will be 250g plus (1.55 - 0.65)/0.10 units of 100g

250 + 900 = 1150

This is the maximum weight that can be sent at that price. But, weights exceeding

250 + 800 will also get charged this amount (that is what the ‘part thereof’ implies).

Hence a package weighing 1145 will be charged $1145
