Case 1) Salespeople @ A = 3x, Salespeople @ B = x Average cars sold per salesperson = [11*3x + 16*x]/[3x + x].

Sufficient

Case 2) Total cars sold @ A = 132, Total cars sold @ B = 64 # of salespeople @ A = 132/11 = 12, # of salespeople @ B = 64/16 = 4 Average cars sold per salesperson = [132 + 64]/[12 + 4].

Sufficient

Answer is D
