it is combined 1 and 2.

she bought equal number of stamps so it can be denoted by x
.15x+.29x=4.40
.44x=4.4
x=10

so she bought 10 of .15 and 10 of .29

Isn't (1) by itself sufficient to answer the question ? The only positive integer values of x and y that satifsy 0.15x+0.29y=4.40 are x=y=10.

Hey coolwaether999.. you are cool (right). Only 1 combination works that way.. So A is alone suff. How do you figure out these kind of solution ? I am sure, trial and error will consume lot of time ... do you just hear your ear on that ..?

But the OA that I have says the the correct ans as D. I am just not able to figure out how B alone suff..
can anyone shed some light..
