What is the value of x?

(1) 3(x-1) = y+3x

(2) (x+2)(y+3) = 0

STAT1:

3(x-1) = y+3x

=> 3x- 3 = y + 3x

y = -3

We don't know x so NOT SUFFICIENT

STAT2:

(x+2)(y+3) = 0

=> x= -2 or y =-3 or both x=-2 and y=-3

But we are still not sure as if y=-3 then x need not be equal to -2

SO, NOT SUFFICIENT.

Taking STAT1 and STAT2 together

we are still not sure as y=-3 for sure then x need not be equal to -2

So, Answer will be E

Hope it helps!
