Each M-type memory unit will increase the base memory capacity of a certain computer by 3 megabytes. What is the base memory capacity, in megabytes of the computer?

(1) 2 M-type memory units will increase the computers base memory capacity by 300 percent
(2) The memory capacity of the computer after 2 M-type memory units are added to the base memory capacity is 1.6 times the memory capacity of the computer after 1 M-type memory unit is added to the base memory capacity.

IMO D

from q stem we get
if base mem=x
1M will inc base mem by 3---->x+3
2m--->2x+6

s1) [(2x+6)-x]/x=3 ---> solving x=3 hence suff
s2) 2x+6+x=1.6(x+3+x)---->solving x=6 hence suff

IMO D

s1) one eqn and one variable hence suff
s2) same one eqn and one variable hence suff

Answer is D. But the above solution is not correct. The first indication of this is that the values of x from statement 1 and 2 are different. This never occur in GMAT.

Statements in DS never contradict, nor they are giving the different answers.

(1) x+6=4x --> x=2. Sufficient.

Note that increase by 300% equals to 4 times increase.

(2) x+6=1.6(x+3) --> x=2. Sufficient.
