If Anne spent $150 buying three differently priced [#permalink] New post 26 Aug 2006, 15:33
If Anne spent $150 buying three differently priced textbooks, how much did the most expensive of the three textbooks cost?

(1) The ratio of the cost of the most expensive text-book to the cost of all the text books was 2 to 3.

(2) The ratio of the cost of the most expensive textbook to the cost of the least expensive textbook was 20 to 3.

Straightforward (A). Most books go for about a $100 these days.

Statement 2 is INSUFF because we don't know the ratio the mid priced book.
