 Whenever Martin has a restaurant bill with an amount between \$10 and \$99, he calculates the dollar amount of the tip as 2 times the tens digit of the amount of his bill. If the amount of Martin' most recent restaurant bill was between \$10 and \$99, was the tip calculated by Martin on this bill greater than 15 percent of theamount of the bill?(1) The amount of the bill was between \$15 and \$30(2) The tip calculated by Martin was \$8Its an easy problem..but the issue i have with it is that there is conflicting info in the two statements. For the tip to be 8\$ in (2)..the amt has to be in between 40 and 49But acc to statement (1) the amt is between 15 and 30 which doesnt overlap with the above statement.Is this a flawed question????

 As per the forum rules, we need a verifiable source for the problem before we can deal with this question. If the question is not one of ours or one that is copyright-free, we will have to delete the question.. _________________Tim SandersManhattan GMAT Instructor
