2/3 the time that machine X, working alone, does.

ii) Machine Y, working alone, fills a production order of this size in twice the
time that machine X, working alone, does.

E

x = time Y to complete the job alone
t = time X to complete the job alone
We are looking for x-t = ?

(1) We can say
1/x + 1/t = 3/(2t)
Solve for x, you get x=2t
Therefore x-t = t
INSUFFICIENT as we need to know t

(2) Same information given as (1).
INSUFFICIENT as we need to know t

Together, same. We need to know t in order to compute x-t
