A batch of cookies is divided among three jars. What fraction of the cookies is placed in the third jar?

(1) 1/3 of the cookies are placed in the first jar, while 13 of the cookies are placed in the second jar.

(2) The jars contain a total of 36 cookies, and 30 of those are in the first two jars.






Ans: B (why not D)

For future reference, please don't post OA in the first post.

(1) Insufficient.

x = total # of cookies

Third jar = x - (1/3)x - 13.

No idea what x is.

(2) Sufficient
36-30 = 6

Hi zoinnk:

Thanks for your message. I won't post answers before in future posts. Regarding the question, I overlooked it and assumed that the cookies were equally divided.

Cheers.
