Can a certain rectangular sheet of glass be positioned on a rectangular tabletop so that it covers the entire tabletop and its edges are parallel to the edges of the tabletop?
(1) The tabletop is 36 inches wide by 60 inches long.
(2) The area of one side of the sheet of glass is 2,400 square inches.
Even when we consider the two statements together we can have for instance the following cases: if the dimensions of the glass are 40*60, then the answer would be YES but if the dimensions of the glass are 1*2,400, then the answer would be NO. Not sufficient.
Answer: E.
Little bit confused here about two responses. So I understand your response Bunuel, but then I saw this:
Question can be restated as "Is Glass sheet rectangular & of same dimensions as that of tabletop?"
1) No info is given about glass sheet dimensions- Insufficient
2) No info is given regarding the dimensions of tabletop & its not stated whether the glass sheet is Rectangular, Square or Parallelogram etc.--->Insufficient
1+2) No info is given whether the glass sheet is Rectangular, Square or Parallelogram etc ---Insufficient
Why is there doubt about what type of quadrilateral this is? The statement clearly says rectangular?
