R = 100P + 20Q, and P + Q = 2

Using statement (1), if P>1.1, Q<0.9
As R = 100P + 20Q, R is smallest when P is at its smallest and Q at its largest. This happens when P=1.11 and Q=0.89
R(min)= 100(1.11) + 20(0.89) = 111 + 17.8 which is greater than 120
Therefore R>120. Sufficient.

Using statement (2),
P>Q
R(min) = 100 (1.01) + 20(0.99) = 101 + 19.8 = which is more than 120. Sufficient.

D it is.

R=100(p) + 20(q), p+q=2,is R<120
after rephrasing:
R= 100(2-Q) +20(q)
R= 200-100(q)+20(q)
R= 200-80(q)
200-80(q)<120
200-120<80(q)
80<80(q)
Is 1<q or q>1
stmnt1) no info about q
stmnt2) not sufficient

(1+2) p>1.1,p>q
minimum value of p= 1.2 then q maybe 1.1 ( q>1 yielding yes)
q may be .75 ( q<1, yielding no)

whats wrong with my answer , plz explain

The question asks: is Q>1?

(1) P > 1.1 --> since P=2-Q then 2-Q>1.1 --> Q<0.9. Sufficient.
(2) P>Q --> 2-Q>Q --> Q<1. Sufficient.

If P, Q, R are positive numbers such that R = 100P + 20Q, and P + Q = 2, is R < 120?

\(R=100P+20Q=80P+20(P+Q)=80P+40\). The question asks: is \(80P+40<120\) --> is \(P<1\)?

(1) P > 1.1. Sufficient.
(2) P > Q --> P>2-P --> P>1. Sufficient.

Answer: D.

Could you explain why you tried to solve for Q instead of P?
I did it for P and worked out well, but is there a reason?

Simplify the question stem first. the question is R<120
or 100P+20Q<120. this implies - 5P+Q<6----(1)

Now P+Q=2 or Q=2-P. Putting the value of Q in equation (1) above, we get
5P+2-P<6 OR P<1 -----(2)

So the question reduces to is P<1

Statement 1: Directly provides the answer as P>1.1. Hence sufficient

Statement 2: P>Q, putting the value of Q we get

P>2-P OR P>1. Hence Sufficient.

So Option D
