1) During the sale, total revenue from of these sweaters was 270$.
2) During the sale, the store sold each of these sweaters at a price that was 50% greater tan the store's cost to purchase each sweater. S = selling price C = cost price \Question tells us S= C+30 st 1 = Selling price * no of sweaters = 270.............. insufficient st 2 = S = 1.5C using information from question 1.5 C = C+30 0.5C = 30 C = 60 S =90 but no clue on revenue or number of sweaters sold. ............. insufficient together 90* no of sweaters = 270 no of sweater = 3 sufficient hence C

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

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

Could you please explain : Revenue = price * # of sweaters sold > . Not sufficient to determine .
here We can consider Revenue is selling price  cost price , Can we ?

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
