At a sale all books were priced equally and all magazines were priced equally. What was the price of 3 books and 4 magazines at the sale?
(1) At sale the price of a book was \$1.45 more than the price of a magazine.
(2) At sale the price of 6 books and 8 magazines was \$43.70.

A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.
B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.
C. BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.
D. EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

(1) 3(x+1.45) + 4x = ??
m = x
b = x+1.45

Insuff

(2) 6b+8m = 43.70
divide by 2 > 3b+4m = 21.85

Suff
