A jumbo box of candies has 15 rows with 10 spaces for candies in each row, how many candies are in the box?
(1) There is an average (arithmetic mean) of 6 empty spaces in the first 8 rows. (2) There is an average (arithmetic mean) of 9 empty spaces in the last 7 rows.

(1)  You don't know anything about the empty spaces of the remaining 7 rows. These rows could f.i. be completely filled, or completely empty  insufficient (2)  Same as for statement (1)  insufficient
(1) + (2) = sufficient. Now you know exactly know how many empty spaces there are and therefore how many candles there are in the box.
