Total sales $100000

Statement 1: income from sales = 16000 => 16000/100000 = 16% - Sufficient
Statement 2: x=2y and from the diagram x+y = 24 => 1.5 x = 24 => x=16 sufficient

Ans D

Given x+y+28+8+40=100 or x+y=24..

St 1 says Total sale was 16000 out of total sale of 100000 so % share 16000/100000 or 16%..sufficient

St2 says x=2y or 3y=24 or y=8 and x=16..Sufficient

From questions we have two unknown X and 2y. Total value is 100,000 USD.

S(1): X= 16,000$. We can easily calculate percentage equivalent dividing it by 100 K USD and getting the answer. Hence S(1) Sufficient.

S(2): Gives relationship between X and y. Thus we can form a liner equation by adding all the percentage values + X + 4x(replacing Y by X)= 100 to get value of X. Thus S(2) also suff.

Hence answer is D.

I am so careless as I didn't even look at pi-CHART and rushed to question.

Here 100% =100000.

To find : x

S1: the value of sales corresponding to 100% is given. The value of x% can be determined as (100/100000)*16000
sufficient

S2: x + y = 100-28-8-40
x =2y
two equations and two unknowns. Hence x can be determined.
Sufficient

Since, both statements are sufficient alone.
