**Quote:**

Q stem: Currently, there are 40 cars in each row of the lot at a car dealership. If the parking spaces are to be widened and lengthened so that only 30 cars fit in each row and fewer rows fit in the lot, how many cars will then fit in the entire lot?

This can be broken down:

Let total no of cars be x and there are total y rows.

40 * y = x

We are changing parking area so that

30 * z = x ; Also z < y

Question is : What is x?

**Quote:**

(1) There will be 3 fewer rows of cars.

z is less than y; Not suff since no idea about x

**Quote:**

(2) Currently there are 10 rows of cars.

Now we know value of z, so x = 300. What am I missing here?

OE in past tense is confusing me

Had this St been Currently there are 10 no of cars in each row.

Would this alone be suff?
