For all numbers x, the function h is defined by h(x) = 2x − 1, and the function g is defined by g(x) = (2x − 3)/5. If k is a positive number, what is the value of g(k)?


(1) h(k) = 7

(2) h(1) = k/4


Statement 1) tells us the h(k) = 7 from this we can find the value of k and can then substitute it in g(k) to find the value of g(k) so it is sufficient.

For the sake of showing how we get the value h(k) = 7 so this means \(2k - 1 = 7\) so \(2k = 8\) and k = 4

substitute k = 4 into g(4) = \(\frac{(2*4 - 3)}{5} = \frac{(8-3)}{5} = \frac{5}{5} = 1\)

Statement 2)

\(2-1 = \frac{k}{4}\) so k = 4 now substitute in g(4) we get the answer.

Question asks us to find g(k) = (2*k-3)/5. Hence, a statement is sufficient if you can find the value of k.

Stmt 1: h(k) = 2*k - 1 = 7 => k can be found, Hence sufficient, Eliminate B, C, E

Stmt 2: h(1) = 2*1 - 1 = k/4 => k can be found, Hence sufficient.

No Need to solve, since it a DS question. Answer is Option D.
