Which of Company X and Company Y earned the greater gross profit last year? (1) Last year the expenses of Company X were 5/6 of the expenses of Company Y. (2) Last year the revenues of Company X were \$6 million less than the revenues of Company Y.
it's a DS ;Let's keep it simple Revenue-Expenses=Profit (i)expenses of x =5/6 of Y WE STILL NEED REVENUE-insufficient (ii)revenue of x= \$6mn less than y we don't know expenses-insufficient from (i) and (ii) both details are relative (to each other) not a standard figure, so (E)

Two reasons why your solution is wrong: 1. {Profit} = {Revenue} - {Expenses}, not {Profit} = {Revenue}*{Expenses}, as you've written. 2. One example is not enough to conclude that a statement is not sufficient.

Which of Company X and Company Y earned the greater gross profit last year?

Since {Profit} = {Revenue} - {Expenses}, then we are asked whether ?

(1) Last year the expenses of Company X were 5/6 of the expenses of Company Y --> . Not sufficient, as we know nothing about the revenues.

(2) Last year the revenues of Company X were \$6 million less than the revenues of Company Y --> . Not sufficient, as we know nothing about the expenses.

(1)+(2) So, according to the above the question becomes whether or whether . We don't know that, hence even taken together the statements are not sufficient. Answer: E.

Each of 10 machines works at a constant rate. When working together the amount of time it takes to complete a job is 16 hrs. How many hours will it take to complete the same job if only 8 machines work together? A. 18 B. 20 C. 22 D. 24 E. 26

2 people scored 6 points = total of 12 points 4 people scored 7 points = total of 28 points 7 people score 8 points = 56 points 9 people score 9 points = 81 points 3 people score 10 points = 30 points

Total points = 207 Total people = 25

arithmetic mean = total points / total people arithmetic mean = 207/25 = 8.28 = 8.3

In isosceles triangle RST what is the measure of angle R? (1) The measure of angle T is 100 degrees. (2) The measure of angle S is 40 degrees.

Statement 1 is sufficient because the other 2 angles must be 40 degrees. Statement 2 seems to me to be sufficient as well. Because the sum of any 2 angles in a triangle must be greater than the 3rd angle, and since S is 40 degrees, wouldn't the other 2 angles have to be equal to 70 degrees? The answer is A apparently.

First Statement: If T is 100 degrees, it cannot be one of the equal angles of the isoceles triangle...because 100 + 100 = 200 > 180, even before taking into account the third angle. So the remaining two angles have to be the equal ones i.e. 180 - 100 = 80 / 2 = 40 = R = S. SUFFICIENT

Second Statement: S=40. From this we cannot be sure if S is one of the equal angles. If S is NOT one of the equal angles, then S=40 and R=T=70 (180-40 = 140/2). If S was one of the equal angles then, S=40 = R or T i.e. If R = 40, then T = 110 OR if T = 40, then R = 110. INSUFFICIENT

incorrect on 2 counts.

first of all, WE DON'T KNOW WHICH TWO ANGLES ARE EQUAL. there are two possibilities for an isosceles triangle with a 40° angle in it: (case 1) 40°, 40°, 100° (if angle S = 40° is one of the two equal angles) (case 2) 40°, 70°, 70° (if angle S = 40° is NOT one of the two equal angles)

worse yet - it would still be insufficient even if only case (1) were possible! this is because there are two DIFFERENT angles - 100° and the other 40° - remaining, and you don't know which of these is angle T. i.e., angle T could still be either 40° or 100° in this case. so you don't even need to come up with case 2 in order to prove insufficient!
