1) Hugh jackman purchased fewer than six \$29 cards.
2) Hugh jackman spent a total of \$179 on the cards.

Let, the number of \$17 cards purchased = x
the number of \$29 cards purchased = y

Question: y = ?

Statement 1: Hugh jackman purchased fewer than six \$29 cards.

i.e. x > y

NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: Hugh jackman spent a total of \$179 on the cards

i.e. 17x + 29y = 179

i.e. x = (179-29y)/17

First possible integer solution is x = 2 and y = 5

Second possible integer solution is x = 2+29=31 and y = 5-17=-12 NOT ACCEPTABLE
i.e. x and y will have unique solution as x and y MUST be positive integers

SUFFICIENT
