If the ratio of the price of 1 kilogram Camembert cheese to the price of 1 kilogram Brie cheese is 5:8, then the price of a kilogram of Toma cheese is how much higher (in dollars) than the price of a kilogram of Camembert cheese?
(1) The price of 1 kilogram of Brie cheese is 25% higher than the price of 1 kilogram of Toma cheese.
(2) The price of 1 kilogram of Toma cheese is 28% higher than the price of 1 kilogram of Camembert cheese.
Let C, B, and T be the prices per kilogram of each type of cheese.
, or B=1.6C
The question is "what is T-C
we can express T
in terms of C
, but we still don't have the value of C.
. Again, we don't have the value of C.
(1) and (2) together: Not sufficient, as we can deduce only the ratios between the prices of the three types of cheese, we don't any specific value.
