1. We know the target for December is $310,000. We know March is 9 months earlier, but we don't know x. 2. We know X is$10,000 but have no starting point to find March with.

combined we know $310,000 is December Nov:$300,000
Oct: $290,000 Sep:$280,000
Aug: $270,000 July:$260,000
June: $250,000 May:$240,000
April: $230,000 March:$220,000

or you could just take $310,000 - ($10,000 * 9 months) = $220,000 Director Joined: 26 Jul 2007 Posts: 541 Schools: Stern, McCombs, Marshall, Wharton Followers: 7 Kudos [?]: 158 [2] , given: 0 Re: For each month of next year, Company R's monthly revenue [#permalink] ### Show Tags 07 Dec 2007, 09:11 2 This post received KUDOS 1 This post was BOOKMARKED J=target revenue for January Stmt 1.

or you could just take $310,000 - ($10,000 * 9 months) = $220,000 Please help me understand how did we calculate x=10,000 from statement 2. It is an arithmetic progression: Let R be the revenue target for June. For July; revenue target=R+x For August; revenue target=R+2x For September; revenue target=R+3x (2) Company R's revenue target for September of next year is$30,000 greater than its revenue target for June of mext year.

$$R+3x-R=30000$$
$$x=10000$$-------------------------1
Not Sufficient.

(1) Company R's revenue target for December of next year is $310,000 Let Jan's revenue target be J, Common difference is "x". First term(January)=J; Last term or 12th term, say D(December) $$A_n=A_1+(n-1)d$$ $$D=J+(n-1)x$$ $$D=J+(12-1)x$$ $$310000=J+11x$$-----2 Not Sufficient. Using 1 and 2, we get J and we know x. March Revenue Target= J+2x Sufficient.

Not Sufficient a+11x = 310000 we dont know a or x. In other words different a , will give different x. 2. Not sufficient a+8x = 30000 + a+5x x can be found . But no info on a. Together, a+11x = 310000 and we have x from 2. Hence this is Sufficient. Answer is C.

INSUFFICIENT Combining both statements: We know the value of x and we know the value in one of the months, Hence we can calculate the revenue in March SUFFICIENT Correct Option: C _________________ # Janielle Williams Customer Support Special Offer:$80-100/hr.
