1. obviously INSUFF since you know nothing about the other machine.
2. INSUFF since you dont know the rate - it could be 10/min or 20/min so end result differs

Combine:
M1 = 250/min
M2 COULD be 500/min OR 125/min since M1 could be the machine that produces 250/min AND the same machine that is twice the rate from 2. so as you can see the end result differrs.

To answer this question I need to know the rates of both the machines. Without that it is not possible to answer the question
St 1: Only gives me one rate
st 2: Just gives me a relation

1+ 2 = Cannot give me anything since I donot know if 250 c/min is the rate of the faster or the slower machine.
