1) insufficient -> total revenue $270, number of sweaters is greater than 9, no info about sweater price 2) insufficient -> cost of sweaters is $60, retail price $90, no total revenue info

(C)

Sale price = $30 + Cost price, or S = $30 + C

1) Insufficient. Each sweater could have been sold for 60 or 230. If n sweaters were sold, we have n*S = 270

2) Insufficient. 50% greater = $30, hence or S = 1.5*C Plugging this in the first equation, we get S = 90, C = 60. But we still don't have n.

Combining (1) & (2): n*90 = 270 or n = 3 _________________

1: revenue = profits - cost. 270$=(x+30)z z is the number of sweaters.

we have two unknowns and only 1 equation insuff.

2: x= cost. x+30=1.5x --> x=60 Thus total price is 90$. Insuff though b/c we dont know the revenue.

(1) During the sale, the total revenue from the sale of these sweaters was $270.

(2) During the sale, the store sold each of these sweaters at a price that was 50% greater than the store's cost to purchase each sweater.

Given: \(p=c+30\)

(1) Revenue = price * # of sweaters sold --> \(270=p*n=(c+30)n\). Not sufficient to determine \(n\).

(2) \(p=1.5c=c+30\) --> \(c=60\). Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) \(c=60\) and \(270=(c+30)n=90n\) --> \(n=3\). Sufficient.

Answer: C.

Dear Bunuel,I follow the below way to answer the above question and I do not know what is the wrong in my way?

we have that (Selling price per unit) - (Cost price per unit) = (Gross profit from one unit)= 30

270= (Selling price per unit - Cost price per unit)*# of sweaters sold
