If tank X contains only gasoline, how many kiloliters of gasoline are in tank X.

(1) If 1/2 of the gasoline in tank X were pumped out, the tank would be fillef to 1/3 of its capacity.

(2) If .75 kiloliter of gasoline were pumped into tank X, it would be filled to capacity.

I will take C.
x=amount of gasoline in kiloliters and y=capacity of tank in kiloliters

statement 1. 1/2x=1/3y not sufficient

statement 2. 3/4+1/2x=y not sufficient

Both sufficient.

Two equations with two variables solvable

don't you think that statement 2 should be: 3/4 + x = y


End result is the same though: 2 equations and 2 unknowns => solvable!
