If A=0.abc, where a, b, and c are digits of A, is A greater than 2/3?

Is A>\frac{2}{3}? --> Is A>0.666...?

(1) a+b>14 --> since a and b are single digits, then the least value of a is 6 and in this case b must be 9 (a+b=6+9=15>14), thus the least value of A is 0.69, so more than 0.666... Sufficient.

(2) b+c>15. Clearly insufficient, since we know nothing about a.

Answer: A.

Question: A greater than 2/3? or A greater than 0.6666?
This is again a YES or NO, question.
Getting either will be fine for the solution.

(1) a+b>14 or a+b>=15
The possible ways for a and b how we can get this is :

a b
6 9
7 8
8 7
9 6

these are the only possible combinations as anything less than 5 will make the other 10, and well anything more then 9 will result in a 10.

anyways, from the above possible values we can see that each is >=0.6666 =>Sufficient

(2) b+c>15

Here, the main digit that we are concerned about is a as that decides if the no is >=0.666 or not
even if b=c=9, but a=1, it will be less then 0.6666
or if a=b=c=9 the in that case it will be greater.

Anyway we need some information of A => Not Sufficient.

Ans : A
