The proportion of $1,5,10 bills is given in question, so whatever the number of bills , the proportions will stay the same. a) insufficient - The information is redundant. the question already says,$ 1 and 10 bills are in ratio 1: 10, so whatever the numbers of these bills, their values will always be the same.

b) sufficient- consider the least case. the least amount of bills bill can have are 10 $1, 5$5 and 1 $10 bills. now that means 10 *1$ + 5*5 $+ 1*10$= 10+25+10 =45 $. So bill can have total money always as a multiple of 45. Now 45*5 =225$. so bill has 5 $10 bills. for every 45$ he has 1 dollar 10 bill so for 5 times 45 he will have 5 dollar ten bills.

$1 :$5 : $10 = 10:5:1 Values are in proportion$10:$25:$10

Stmt1:The dollar value of his $1 bills equals the dollar value of his$10 bills.
Number of dollar bills can be 10,5,1. Values are in proportion $10:$25:$10 or it can be 20,10,2. Values are in proportion$20:$50:$20. Insufficient.

Stmt2: Bill has a total of $225. Values are in proportion$10:$25:$10
hence, amount that $1 bill contributes to$225 = 10/45 * 225 = $50. We have 50$1bill
amount that $5 bill contributes to$225 = 25/45 * 225 =125. We have 25 $5 bill amount that$10 bill contributes to $225 = 10/45 * 225 =$50. We have 5 $10 bill. Ratio of bill= 50:25:5= 10:5:1. Sufficient. OA B. _________________ My dad once said to me: Son, nothing succeeds like success.

What Jamifahad is telling us that statement 1 doesn't give us any additional information that is already given in the stem.

n($1):n($5):n($10) 10:5:1 No matter which +ve integer do you multiply the above ratio, the value of$10 bills WILL ALWAYS be equal to $1 bills. The example used:$20:$50:$20
=
2:5:2 ----> Not what is given in the stem.

20:10:2
OR
200:100:20
would be correct.
