For a cruise, a travel agency charges a weekly rate of $400 plus y dollars for each additional person booked on the same reservation. What is the charge for each additional person?

(1) The weekly rate for 5 people sharing the cost of the cruise equally is $1600.
(2) The weekly rate per person is 20 percent more expensive for 2 people sharing the cost equally than it is for 4 people sharing the cost equally.

OE:
(1): 400 + 4y =1600 → 4y=1200 → y=300
Sufficient
(2): (400 + y)/2 = 1.2(400 +3y)/4
Sufficient

No Need to calculate the values if you can understand the question.

With one there is only one variable. == y which is 400+4y=1600. So sufficient.

the 2nd statement (400+y)/2=1.2(400+3y)/4 Y can be solved. So D.

4 y as it only refers to additional people booked. As 5 people are booked in 1, you can substract one.

Can we presume that if the rate is just mentioned without any number that is 400 per person or 400 for 2 persons, to be rate only for 1 person, please explain?

As well as can we have the liberty to assume in such question?
