Since Average of class A is given, we can consider this as ONE entity

Statement 1: Average of class B is given. Thus we can consider this as ONE entity.
We need to find the average of these TWO entities.
[Ave(A) + Ave(B)]/2 should do it.

Statement 2: Insuff, since we dont know number of students for class A

that is flawed. you cannot average as above.

when you donot have ratio of A and B or their numbers, you cannot simply average the averages of A and B. you could do if A and B are equal.

We need to know the total numbers of students to get the overall average.

Both statements together insuff.
