Question asks is 2K > 13 or Is K > 6.5 ?

(1) 6 < k - 0.6 < 7 ... add 0.6 to all sides of ineq

6 + 0.6 < k < 7 + 0.6
6.6 < k < 7.6

Hence k > 6.5 Sufficient

(2) let k be 6.6

6.6 + 0.8 = 7.4 ( rounded to nearest integer is 7) so k must be greater than 6.6 hence greater than 6.5 also! Hence Suff

Hence Option (D) is our answer.

Best,

As per question we want to find K>6.5

I) solving yield 6.6<k<7.6
Sufficient

II)value needs to be min 6.7 so as to +0.8 would yield 7.5 which will round up to 8 as integer

Sufficient

D is answer

Can anybody confirm For statement 2 "

Range of K+0.8 should be what ?

7.5 \(\leq\) k + 0.8 \(\leq\) 8.4
7.5 \(\leq\) k + 0.8 \(\leq\) 8.5
I think it should be the first one , as for 8.5 nearest integer is 9 and not 8 . Thank you.
