The question does not provide any information about how much money the kid has. So obviously you need both statements to answer the question. Ans is C.

If Johnny wants to buy some candy with nickels ($0.05 coins) and quarters ($0.25 coins) that his mother gave him, how many quarters does he have?

The total value of Johnny's coins is 85 cents. Johnny has more quarters than nickels in his pocket. (C) 2008 GMAT Club - m04#22

Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (2) ALONE is not sufficient Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (1) ALONE is not sufficient BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient EACH statement ALONE is sufficient Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient

Let T : the total value of Johnny's coin T=85 X : the number of quarter in Johnny's pocket Y: the number of nickel in Johnny's pocket ;

Hence, (0.25*X) + (0.05*Y) = 85 Since X>Y (Johnny has more quarters than nickels in his pocket)

X and Y can have different values . For example : x = 339 , y= 5

Or x= 338, y = 10

Or x = 337, y = 15

Thus, the answer should be E.

Plz Correct if i'm wrong ..

Hi,

And has to be C

Let there by x no. Of quarter and y nickels.We need to find x

Now st 1 says

x*0.25+y*.05= 85 cents

There are many possible values such as below x=3 and y=2 or x= 2, y = 7 or x=1 and y=12

There fire not suff

St 2 says x>y

Alone not sufficient

Combining we see that only possible value will be x= 3 and y= 2

Thanks Mridul
