If d represents the hundredths digit and e represents the thousandths digit in the decimal 0.4de, what is the value of this decimal rounded to the nearest tenth?

To answer the question we should know whether d\geq{5}.

(1) d – e is equal to a positive perfect square --> easy to get two different result: 0.4de=0.451 (5-1=4=2^2), then 0.4de rounded to the nearest tenth will be 0.5 but if 0.4de=0.421 (2-1=1=1^2), then 0.4de rounded to the nearest nearest tenth will be 0.4. Not sufficient.

(2) \sqrt{d}>e^2 --> also easy to get two different result: if \sqrt{d}=\sqrt{5}>1^2=e^2 or \sqrt{d}=\sqrt{2}>1^2=e^2. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) 0.451 and 0.421 satisfy both statements and give different values of 0.4de when rounded to the nearest tenth: 0.5 and 0.4. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.

Rounding rules
Rounding is simplifying a number to a certain place value. To round the decimal drop the extra decimal places, and if the first dropped digit is 5 or greater, round up the last digit that you keep. If the first dropped digit is 4 or smaller, round down (keep the same) the last digit that you keep.

Example:
5.3485 rounded to the nearest tenth = 5.3, since the dropped 4 is less than 5.
5.3485 rounded to the nearest hundredth = 5.35, since the dropped 8 is greater than 5.
5.3485 rounded to the nearest thousandth = 5.349, since the dropped 5 is equal to 5.

Hope it helps.

st1-d-e =perfect square.
let d-e=4 (d=4; e=0) or d-e=9 (d=9 e =0) insuff

st2- sqrootd>e^2
sqroot4>0 or sqroot9>0. again insuff. as everyone can understand, together these stmnts are also insuff

(1) d – e is equal to a positive perfect square.
(2) √d > e^2


we are allowed to use numbers < 10.

1. there are only 3 perfect squares in the available range. 1; 4; 9.

Pick 4. If d-e=4 then d might be 4 and e 0 or d might be 7 and e 3. If d=4 then our decimal remains 0.4; If d=7 our decimal becomes 0.5

NS.

2. since we know for sure that we are dealing with positive integers+0 we can safely say that if the square root of a number is greater than another number to the power of n, then the number under square root must be greater than the number to the power of n. This conveys us that d>e.

NS

1+2) Both cases on statement 1) hold. (E)
