1) (3r+2-s)(4r+9-s) =0
2) (4r-6-s)(3r+2-s)=0


Statement1)

3r + 2 - s = 0 or 4r + 9 -s = 0
s = 3r + 2 or s = 4r + 9

Insufficient

Statement2)

4r - 6 - s = 0 or 3r + 2 - s = 0

s = 4r - 6 or s = 3r + 2

Insufficient

Statement1&2)

s = 3r + 2

Sufficient.

Re: gmatprep DS [#permalink] New post 23 Nov 2009, 09:58
so if i generalise the 2 eqns
1) x * y = 0 i.e. x =0 or y =0
2) x * z =0 i.e. x =0 or z =0

combining 1 and 2 ..
conclude that x = 0

is that ok??
