More info:

1) divide both sides by 2. We get a > b

2) subtract both sides by c. We get a > b

These are the kind of questions you really want to make sure you haven't missed anything! They seem so simple - but may or may not be! :roll:

i think its D too. in st 1 if we divide by 2 we get a>b, and in st 2 we can subs the C and still get the same thing. both statements by themselves are suff to answer the Q so answer - D.
