Answer is C
1. We know the target for December is $310,000. We know March is 9 months earlier, but we don't know x.
2. We know X is $10,000 but have no starting point to find March with.
combined we know $310,000 is December
Nov: $300,000
Oct: $290,000
Sep: $280,000
Aug: $270,000
July: $260,000
June: $250,000
May: $240,000
April: $230,000
March: $220,000
or you could just take $310,000  ($10,000 * 9 months) = $220,000

or you could just take $310,000  ($10,000 * 9 months) = $220,000 Please help me understand how did we calculate x=10,000 from statement 2. It is an arithmetic progression: Let R be the revenue target for June. For July; revenue target=R+x For August; revenue target=R+2x For September; revenue target=R+3x (2) Company R's revenue target for September of next year is $30,000 greater than its revenue target for June of mext year. \(R+3xR=30000\) \(x=10000\)1 Not Sufficient. (1) Company R's revenue target for December of next year is $310,000 Let Jan's revenue target be J, Common difference is "x". First term(January)=J; Last term or 12th term, say D(December) \(A_n=A_1+(n1)d\) \(D=J+(n1)x\) \(D=J+(121)x\) \(310000=J+11x\)2 Not Sufficient. Using 1 and 2, we get J and we know x. March Revenue Target= J+2x Sufficient. Ans: "C"

JAN FEB MAR APR MAY......... .DEC a a+x a+2x a+11x
a+2x=? 1. Not Sufficient a+11x = 310000
we dont know a or x. In other words different a , will give different x.
2. Not sufficient
a+8x = 30000 + a+5x
x can be found . But no info on a.
Together,
a+11x = 310000 and we have x from 2.
Hence this is Sufficient.
Answer is C.

J (January), J + X, J +2X = ? 1) J + 11X = 310,000 Not sufficient. 2) J + 8X = J + 5X + 30,000 ; 3X = 30,000 ; X = 10,000 But do not know J, not sufficient 1) & 2) J + 11*10,000 = 310,000 ; J = 200,000 Done Answer C.

Given: Monthly revenue target is x dollars greater than the target for the previous month Required: Revenue for March of next year Statement 1: Target for Dec = 310,000 Target for January = 310,000 + x Target for February = 310,000 + 2x Target for March = 310,000 = 3x But we have no clue about x INSUFFICIENT Statement 2: Revenue for September  Revenue for June = 30,000 Hence 3x = 30,000 But we have no idea about the actual revenues. INSUFFICIENT Combining both statements: We know the value of x and we know the value in one of the months, Hence we can calculate the revenue in March SUFFICIENT Correct Option: C
