5.1 * $5 =$26
4.9 * $3 =$14.7

$40.70 --- we got an answer!!!!!!!!!

Insufficient. II - if x and y are equal in quantity, the total price will$40. Since the total price is less than 40, the cheaper materian quantity (x) should be greater. Sufficient.

Yep I have B too.

With statement 2 I took half of each and with that you can see that it is exactly $40. The cheaper material will be therefore of more quantity than the more expensive material.

Therefore for the total price to be under $40 we need to have more X than Y. Statement one does not provide enough information.
