1) we don't know what 40% is equal to hence we cannot deduce the total amount
2)we don't how much came from non corporate donations hence also insuff.

1+2
we know 40% from corporate donations hence 60% from non corporate donations
60% = $1.5 Million hence we can find 100% 1+2 Sufficient Answer C _________________ - Stne Current Student Joined: 03 Feb 2013 Posts: 932 Location: India Concentration: Operations, Strategy GMAT 1: 760 Q49 V44 GPA: 3.88 WE: Engineering (Computer Software) Followers: 126 Kudos [?]: 772 [1] , given: 546 Re: What was the amount of money donated to a certain charity?

Statement 1) No actual value of money mentioned but the question asks about amount of money. Not Sufficient.
Statement 2) Though the value of money is specified, but the relationship of "noncorporate donations" with the "money donated" is not specified. So Not Sufficient.

(1)+(2) 0.6*{total} = $1.5 million. We can solve for {total}. Sufficient. Answer: C. can we assume that there are only two type of donations , not any other/ third type .? pls. explain.

"All donations are either corporate or noncorporate, how else? Consider this, are there any other colors but black and non-black? It's as simple as this."
