Is \((1 + 0.01r)(1 - 0.01s) > 1\) ?


(1) \(r > s\)

(2) \(0.01rs < r - s\)



\((1 + 0.01r)(1 - 0.01s) > 1............1+0.01r-0.01s-0.0001rs>1...............0.01r-0.01s-0.0001rs>0...............r-s>0.01rs\)

so basically we have to say whether r-s>0.01rs

let's see the statements..
(1) \(r > s\)
just says that r-s>0...
insuff

(2) \(0.01rs < r - s\)
this is exactly what we were looking for..
suff

Hello chetan2u,
(1+0.01r)(1−0.01s)=1+.01[(r-s)-0.01rs]
If we will take r<s
Suppose r=10 s=20
Then 1+.01[(r-s)-0.01rs]=0.88
And if r=20 and s=10
Then 1+.01[(r-s)-0.01rs]=1.08
Hence option c is correct

\(0.01rs<r−s\)...
if r = 10 and s = 20..
\(0.01*10*20 <10-20.......2<-10\)????.... not valid as per statement II

Resolving equation

1+0.01[(r-s)-0.1rs]

I) r>s

3>2 value of equation less than 1
3>-2 value of equation greater then 1
Insufficient

II)this equation makes bracket greater than 1 in equation
So value >1
Sufficient

B is answer

Bunuel chetan2u

Can you please elaborate how 1 is insufficient
On solveing the given equation we get
r-s>0.01rs
in this equation if we take any value of r greater than s it satisfy the above equation.

No it does not..
Take huge value for r and s but very less difference between the two..
Say r=100 and s=99...
So r-s=100-99=1..
But 0.01rs=0.01*100*99=99..
Here r-s<0.01rs as 1<99
