What is the tens digit of positive integer x ?
(1) x divided by 100 has a remainder of 30 --> \(x=100q+30\), so \(x\) can be: 30, 130, 230, ... Each has the tens digit of 3. Sufficient.
(2) x divided by 110 has a remainder of 30 --> \(x=110p+30\), so \(x\) can be: 30, 250, ... We already have two values for the tens digit. Not sufficient.

St 1: Sufficient: X should be number such as 130, 230, 330, 430.... In all case if we divide X by 100 the remainder is 30. so the tens digit is 3 St 2: Insufficient: Let say X be 140 : In this case the remainder is 30 when divided by 110, So tens digit is 4 Let say X be 250: In this case the remainder is 30 when divided by 110, So tens digit is 5.

The best way to solve this question is to use equation rather than getting stuck in remainder part 1) x = 100a+30 , where a is non-negative integer. Thus x can take following values 30,130,230,330....etc So the ten's digit always will be 3 Sufficient 2) x = 110a+30 , where a is non-negative integer. Thus x can take following values 30,140,250,380....etc So the ten's digit in not unique In-Sufficient Answer A _________________

What is the tens digit of positive integer x ?
(1) x divided by 100 has a remainder of 30. Means, x=100n+30 ; n=1,2,3... x can be 130,230,330-in all cases tens place is held by 3- sufficient
(2) x divided by 110 has a remainder of 30. Means, x=110n+30 ; n =1,2,3... x can be 110,220,330- the tens place is changing with changing value of n - insufficient
