A train traveled from station X to station Y at a constant speed of 88 feet per second. Is the distance that the train traveled from station X to station Y greater than 40 miles? (1 mile = 5,280 feet)

(1) It took less than 45 minutes for the train to travel from station X to station Y

(2) It took more than 42 minutes for the train to travel from station X to station Y

(A)Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.

(B)Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.

(C)BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.

(D)EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.

(E)Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

This seems easy to me.....picked D.....views????

I get B.

Rate is 88ft per sec. Rate is also 5280 ft per min. or 1 mile per min.

S1: less than 45 min. train could have traveled 2min or 44min insuff.

S2: traveled more than 42min. Well lets just take the xtreme that it traveled 42 min.

We can see that since the train travels 1 mile in 1 minute that 42minutes will equal 42miles. More than 40.

Suff.
