E-mail 1—E-mail from division director to donations coordinator August 10, 9:37 a.m.
Yesterday I spoke with the computer training lab administrator to update him on the status of donations for the school district’s computer donations drive. He extended the donations deadline for another week, until next Tuesday. Are we on track to receive enough donations from students’ families to meet our goal of computers for the new training lab? Do we need to extend our request to local businesses too?
E-mail 2—E-mail from donations coordinator in response to the division director’s August 10, 9:37 a.m. message
August 10, 10:04 a.m.
To date we have received 40 computers. We need 100 computers donated to meet our goal for the new training lab. We have requested help from all of the students’ families, so we should invite local businesses as well. In all of our past drives, including this one so far, we have received donations from about 20 percent of those who received requests. (Of course, we might always receive more or less than that average, so we should consider the possibilities of not meeting the goal or overspending the budget for the thank-you event.) Each individual or organization donating a computer will receive two invitations to our thank-you event to celebrate the opening of the lab. Refreshments and supplies for the event are expected to run \$20 per person. What is the total budget for the thank-you event?
E-mail 3—E-mail from division director to donations coordinator in response to the donation coordinator’s August 10, 10:04 a.m. message
August 10, 10:35 a.m.
The budget for the thank-you event is ﬁ xed at \$4,000. This would allow us to accommodate 2 attendees for each of the 100 computers donated. The budget is ﬁ rm, so we should take care to ensure that the event costs stay within this amount. Although we do not have resources to extend the budget, if necessary we could determine ways to reduce the cost per person if we receive more donations than the original goal amount.
Q. Suppose that the donations coordinator requests computer donations from 400 local businesses. If all the information in the three e-mails is accurate, the number of attendees that will be invited to participate in the thank-you event is closest to:
• a)
135
• b)
160
• c)
200
• d)
240
• e)
300
