Is x> 9

1)
x^2 + 3x = 28
x^2+3x-28 = 0
x^2+7x-4x-28=0
(x+7)(x-4)=0
x = -7 or 4
Both the values of x less than 9, hence statement 1 is sufficient.

2)
9x = 5x - 28
4x = -28
x = -7
-7 < 9, Hence statement 2 is sufficient.

Option D should be the answer.

(1) x^2 + 3x = 28
(2) 9x = 5x − 28

Statement 1:
x^2+3x-28=0
Solving the quadratic eqn
X=4,-7
Both are less than 9
Sufficient

Statement 2:
9x=5x-28
4x=-28
X=-7
Sufficient

Ans: D
