If each of the 8 employees working on a certain project received an award, was the amount of each award the same?

(1) The standard deviation of the amounts of the 8 awards was 0.

(2) The total amount of the 8 awards was $10,000.

Statement 1: this implies that amount of each reward is equal. but we don't know the value of the reward.

InsufficientStatement 2: total amount is mentioned but no information given about the relationship among each reward.

InsufficientCombining 1 & 2 as each reward is equal, we get each reward \(= \frac{10000}{8} = 1250\).

SufficientOption

CArent we supposed to just say whether the amount of awards was same or not? I think Statement 1 would suffice, as per logic given by you.
