On the number line, the distance between point A and point C is 5 and the distance between point B and point C is 20. Does C lie between point A and point B?

(1) The distance between point A and point B is 25. (2) Point A lies to the left of point B.

|----|------------------| A C B |- 5--| |--------20-------| |-----------25----------|

Only way statement 1 works is above. Statement 1 is sufficient.

Statement 2 is a trap. If you do statement 1 first, you may be fooled into thinking, because A is to the left of point B that it is the same as above. However, it could also be: |----|------------| C A B |-5--| |---20-------| |-------20--------|

Doh, it didn't preserve the white space. Anyways, in Statement 2 we don't know the distance between A and B, therefore it could 20 or 25 units apart. C could be to the left of A or in the middle.

For statement 2 following cases are possible: A--(5)--C-------(20)-----------B C--(5)--A-------(15)---------B

So this statement is not sufficient.

Answer: A.

Highly recomend Karishma's blog posts on absolute values / number line concepts
