1)\(\frac{(r^2-rc)}{(r^2-c^2)}\) > \(\frac{c(r+c)}{(r+c)^2}\)
2) If p peanut butter cookies were added to the jar then \(\frac{r}{(r+c+p)} > \frac{c}{(r+c+p)}\)

D:

Statement 1:
the question stem asks if r / (r+c) > c / (r+c)
Statement 1 states the same thing except LHS is multiplied by (r-c)/(r-c) and RHS is multiplied by (r+c)/(r+c)

Statement 2:
adding in a constant does not change the proportion therefore also sufficient

Therefore D

D is sufficient

Option A, r(r-c)/(r-c)(r+c) >. c(r+c)/(r+c)^2
if (r-c) is not equal to 0 and (r+c) is not equal to 0,

r/(r+c) > c/(r+c)
which is 1/(r+c) (r-c)>0.... which gives r>c

sufficient

Option B, r/(r+c+p)> c/(r+c+p)
if r+c+p is not equal to 0,

1/(r+p+c) (r-c)>0,
which means r>c,
sufficient
Hence D is the answer

D.

Since we can assume r and c would be positive, solving statement 1 gives r>c. The second statement introduces a constant to both sides and it can be concluded that r>c.

Gmatprep550 substitute some values

r=1
c=2
p=3

\(\frac{r}{(r+c)}<\frac{c}{(r+c)}\)
\(\frac{1}{3}<\frac{2}{3}\)

\(\frac{r}{(r+c+p)}<\frac{c}{(r+c+p)}\)
\(\frac{1}{6}<\frac{2}{6}\)
