What was the price of the lamp in store W, in June of year X? The price of the cabinet in June = 0.8C; The price of the cabinet in July = C; The price of the lamp in June = 1.15L; The price of the lamp in July = L; (1) In July of year X, the price of the cabinet was$260 greater than the price of the lamp --> C=L+260. Not sufficient to find L.

(2) The ratio of the price of the cabinet in June of year X to the price of the cabinet in July of year X was 4 to 5 --> we knew this from the stem, since (0.8C)/C=0.8=4/5, so this statement is useless. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) One statement is insufficient and another is useless, thus even taken together the statements are not sufficient.

Hope it's clear.

(2) The ratio of the price of the cabinet in June of year X to the price of the cabinet in July of year X was 4 to 5. Statement 1 and 2 are insufficient of itself......I hope thats easy and you may hove no doubt in that Combining both statement gives C-L = 260 and 0.8C/C = 4/5 You can noot calcualte the value of C from the proprotion......because c will be cancelled and you will be left out with 0.8 =4/5 had it been 0.8l/c =4/5 than there would have been possible soln.... Consider kudos if my post helps!!
