1) During the sale the total revenue from sale of these sweaters was $270 2) During the sale, the store sold each of these sweaters at a price that was 50% greater than the store's cost to purchase each sweater. 1) insufficient > total revenue $270, number of sweaters is greater than 9, no info about sweater price 2) insufficient > cost of sweaters is $60, retail price $90, no total revenue info 1&2: sufficient > number of sweaters is 3

1) During the sale the total revenue from sale of these sweaters was $270 2) During the sale, the store sold each of these sweaters at a price that was 50% greater than the store's cost to purchase each sweater. (C) Sale price = $30 + Cost price, or S = $30 + C 1) Insufficient. Each sweater could have been sold for 60 or 230. If n sweaters were sold, we have n*S = 270 2) Insufficient. 50% greater = $30, hence or S = 1.5*C Plugging this in the first equation, we get S = 90, C = 60. But we still don't have n. Combining (1) & (2): n*90 = 270 or n = 3

1) During the sale the total revenue from sale of these sweaters was $270 2) During the sale, the store sold each of these sweaters at a price that was 50% greater than the store's cost to purchase each sweater. 1: revenue = profits  cost. 270$=(x+30)z z is the number of sweaters. we have two unknowns and only 1 equation insuff. 2: x= cost. x+30=1.5x > x=60 Thus total price is 90$. Insuff though b/c we dont know the revenue. Together: 90z=270 > z=3 C

sale price = 30 + cost price
stat 1 tells us that total revenue was $720, i.e. 720/30+cost price = #sweaters sold. SInce we dont know the cost price, its insuff.
stat 2 tells us that 30+c=1.5c >c=6, and therefore sale price is 90. but we dont know the total revenue. insuff.
together we can determine that 720/90 = 3. Therefore, suff.
C

Given: S = C + 30 [S = Sales, c = cost] (1) NS=270 [N = number of sales] So, (c + 30) x N = 270, N is unknown, Insufficient. (2) c+30 = 150%c, C can be calculated from the equation, but we need N=? Insufficient. C= 60 Considering C (60+30) x N = 270 N = 3

Dear Bunuel,I follow the below way to answer the above question and I do not know what is the wrong in my way? we have that (Selling price per unit)  (Cost price per unit) = (Gross profit from one unit)= 30 270= (Selling price per unit  Cost price per unit)*# of sweaters sold 270= 30*# of sweaters sold So # of sweaters sold = 270/30

Hi 23a2012, In your calculation, you're using the PROFIT to determine the number of sweaters sold, but the $270 mentioned in Fact 1 is based on the REVENUE. The equation is supposed to be: $270 = (Sale price per sweater)(number of sweaters). GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made, Rich

from (1), if SP = selling price and CP = cost price SP = 30 + CP SP(x) = (30 + CP) x where x is the number of sweaters sold since (1) tells us that total revenue is 270, that means SP(x) = 270 therefore x(30 + CP) = 270 we still don't know what CP is, so (1) is insufficient from (2), SP = 150% * CP we don't know what CP is, so (2) is insufficient but with info from (1), 270 = 150% * CP so we can find what CP is. Knowing what CP is, we can solve for (1) therefore we need both statements together. Hence (c)
