Last month, John had a total of 60 articles- shirts, suits or ties- dry cleaned at a cost of $300. If dry cleaning costs $2.00 for each tie, $5.00 for each shirt and $6.50 for each suit, did John have more suits than shirts dry cleaned last month?

(1) John had more than 12 ties dry cleaned last month.

(2) John paid more than $150 to have his suits dry cleaned last month.

THIS IS A BIT LENGHTY( WAY OVER LESS THAN 2 MINUTES

FROM STEM

SH + S + T =60.........ONE

5SH+6.5S+2T = 300 TWO

MUTLIPLU TWO BY 2 AND ONE BY -4 AND ADD TOGETHER

6SH+9S = 360 THUS 2SH+3S = 120.............

FROM ONE

SH+S <=47

ASSUME THAT SH+S = 47 0R 46 OR 45 OR 44......

2SH+3S = 120

SH+S = 47

THUS S=26,SH = 21

IF SH+S = 46 THUS

S = 28 , SH = 19

IF SH+S = 45 THUS

S = 30 AND SH = 17..........ALWAYS S> SH....SUFF

FROM TWO

6.5 S > 150 THUS S > 23

IE COULD BE 24,25,26,27,.............AND IT CAN ONLY BE EVEN NUMBER

SO IT COULD BE (24,26,28,.....)

AND 2SH+3S = 120

THUS SH COULD BE (24 ,.......) THEY COULD BE EQUAL OR NOT

INSUFF

MY ANSWER IS A
