(1) The diameter of circle X is 10 greater than the diameter of circle Y.
(2) The area of circle X is 55 times the area of circle Y.

Question: $$R_x - R_y = ?$$

Statement 1: The diameter of circle X is 10 greater than the diameter of circle Y.
$$2(R_x - R_y) = 10$$
$$R_x - R_y = 5$$
SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The area of circle X is 55 times the area of circle Y.
$$R_x^2 / R_y^2 = 55$$
But this doesn't give us the difference between the radius hence
NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 1 is clearly sufficient as we can infer that difference in radius is 6
Statement 2 will give us pie*(sq of r1 -sq of r2) =55 which is clearly insufficient

Statement 1 is sufficient since we directly obtain the difference between R1 and R2 while statement 2 is not. So, option A. Re: How much greater is the radius of circle X than that of circle Y?   [#permalink] 13 Sep 2018, 04:14
