(B) for me

Stat 1
No information about Male and Female...

INSUFF.

Stat 2
Take the total amount of students equal to 100.

Let be:
> M : the number of male (actually it's the percentage we are looking for)
> F : the number of female

We have:
o M + F = 100
o 0.72*M + 0.8*F = 75

2 equations and 2 unknown variables.

SUFF.

Exactly what I had written down. I figured b/c we know .72M+.8F=75

And .28M+.2F=25 and M+F=100

Then i figured B was sufficient b/c its not looking for any real numbers here, just fraction/percentage.

B for me too

assuming 100 again for total and X male applied

72X/100 + 80*(100-X)/ 100 = 75/100 * 100
gives X
And required is X/100

Also go with B:

1. Insuff.

2. It's a mixture problem!

0.75(1) = 0.72(M) + 0.80(1-M)
M = 5/8
W = 3/8

Ans B.
