Does a = 0?

(1) a^3(8.12) = a^4(8.12)
(2) ab ≠ b



(1) Statement 1 can be rephrased as: \(a^3 = a^4\). Thus a can be 0 or 1 and this statement is not sufficient
(1) If a = 0 and b = 1, then ab ≠ b. If a = 2 and b = 3, then ab ≠ b. Since we have two possible values for a, this Statement is not sufficient.

Taking together the two Statements provide enough information. From Statement 1 a can be 1 or 0 and from Statement 2 can be 0 but not 1.
