If two copying machines work simultaneously at their respective constant rates, how many copies do they produce in 5 minutes?

(1) One of the machines produces copies at the constant rate of 250 copies per minute.

(2) One of the machines produces copies at twice the constant rate of the other machine.

1. obviously INSUFF since you know nothing about the other machine.

2. INSUFF since you dont know the rate - it could be 10/min or 20/min so end result differs

Combine:

M1 = 250/min

M2 COULD be 500/min OR 125/min since M1 could be the machine that produces 250/min AND the same machine that is twice the rate from 2. so as you can see the end result differrs.
