At a laboratory, white rats are fed 6 pellets of food per day, and black rats are fed 8 pellets of food per day. If the laboratory fed a total of 120 pellets of food to white and black rats on a certain day, were more black rats than white rats fed?

(1) There are a total of 17 rats.
(2) There are 8 white rats.

(1) B + W = 17;
8B + 6W = 120;

Solving the two equations: 2B = 18;
So one can get the number of black and white rats. Hence, Sufficient.

(2)
There are 8 white rats;
Therefore, 6*8 + 8B = 120; Hence, Sufficient.

Cheers.
