A certain group of car dealerships agreed to donate x dollars to a Red Cross chapter for each car sold during a 30-day period. What was the total amount that was expected to be donated?

2) 60 more cars were sold than expected, so that the total amount actually donated was $28,000

In order to compute the total donation amount, we need two things:1.X and 2.Total number of cars.

1) Total of 500 cars sold. Fine! But, we don’t know x, so donation amount cannot be computed. (Not Sufficient)
2) Let N be total number of cars: (N + 60)X = 28000
Again we don’t have N and X – Not Sufficient

Combine 1) and 2)
560 * X = 28000
X = 2800 / 56 = 50

Total Contribution = 25000.

y: number cars expected
x: donated dollars per car
z: actual number of cars sold

Want: xy = ?

1) A total of 500 cars were expected to be sold
----------------------------------------------
y = 500

insufficient

2) 60 more cars were sold than expected, so that the total amount actually donated was $28,000
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
z = 60 + y
xz = 28,000
x(60+y) = 28,000

insufficient

ANSWER: C
