A fruit stand sells two kinds of fruit for \$0.35 and \$0.45 each. Jane bought some fruits. How many \$0.35 fruits did she buy?
1). She cost \$1.6
0.35x=0.45y=1.6
2 variables – 1 equation
INSUFFICIENT

2). She bought same number of the two fruits.
0.35x=0.45x=C
2 variables – 1 equation
INSUFFICIENT

Using a and 2 together:
0.35x=0.45x=1.6
1 variables – 1 equation
SUFFICIENT
IMO C

1). She cost \$1.6

Stat 1
Total cost = 1.6
not suff

Stat 2
same number of fruits but don't know the number of fruits

together
0.35x+0.45x =1.6

Hence C

IMO A......

ST1 =>
Since we have the total. So equation will be 0.35x+0.45y=1.6
0.35 and 0.45 are not the factors of 1.6 so there is only possible value of x and y is 2.

ST2 =>
Total is not given so we can not get the value of x and y.

IMO A
