A piece of string 3/2 meters long is cut into three pieces. What is the length of each of the pieces?
(1) The length of one of the pieces is 20 cm.
(2) The sum of the lengths of two of the pieces is equal to the length of the third piece.
Information given:- 3/2*100= 150 cms long string is cut into three pieces.
Question:- Length of all three pieces?
(1) The length of one of the pieces is 20 cm. Length of other three pieces is not given (Not sufficient)
(2) The sum of the lengths of two of the pieces is equal to the length of the third piece.
F+S=T
F+S+T=150
2T= 150
T=75
F+S= 75
But F and S can have multiple values (Not sufficient)
Combining two statements- F=20, T=75. We can calculate S easily.
C is the answer
