(1) x < y
(2) z < 0

If (x + y)/z> 0, is x < 0?

Note that: $$\frac{x+y}{z}>0$$ means that $$x+y$$ and $$z$$ have the same sign - either both positive or both negative.

(1) x < y. No info about z. Not sufficient.
(2) z < 0. No info about y. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) $$z<0$$ means $$x+y<0$$. Sum $$x+y<0$$ and $$x<y$$ (from 1): $$x+y+x<y$$ --> $$2x<0$$ --> $$x<0$$. Sufficient.

Hope it helps.
