I understand that one does not need to solve for the exact value of DS questions but I'm not sure how one would go about solving this particular question. Thoughts?

Thanks,

x + y = 4000 ...from (1)
3x + 5y = 15,000 ...from (2)

Hence C

C

(Fx5)+((4000-F)x3)=15000
5F+12000-3F=15000
2F=3000
F=1500

I was thrown off by the "average" being in there. I thought one needed hard numbers to solve this equation. Guess not.

Thanks for the input :-D

Given # of books sold = 15000

S1: Given # of attendees = 4000; Not Sufficient.
S2: Given 3m+5f = 15000; Need another equation to solve this

S1 & S2 : m+f = 4000, 3m+5f =15000 Can Solve. Sufficient.

Answer : C
