If the pages of a term paper were numbered consecutively, with the first page numbered 1, how many pages did the term paper have?

(1) A total of 87 digits were used in numbering the pages --> 9 digits for single digit pages + 2 digits for each two-digit pages = 87 --> 9+2x=87 --> x=39 --> total pages 39+9=48. Sufficient.

(2) The digit 6 was used only 5 times in numbering the pages --> the first 5 pages with 6 are: 6, 16, 26, 36 and 46. The sixth is 56. So, we have that $$46\leq{pages}<56$$. Not sufficient.

Hope it's clear.
