0.15 = x
0.29 = y

x+y = s, what is x?

(1) s=4.40 insuff
(2) x=y, dont know "how many" insuff

(1 & 2)
x+y = 4.40, x=y
eg, 10 >> 10*0.15 + 10*0.29 = 4.40

C

1)4.40 = .15x + .29y insuff.

2)x=y insuff

together

.15x/.15x +.29x = s/4.40
.15/.44 = s/4.40
s=1.50, so 10 stamps for .15 cents and 10 stamps for 29 cents

A should be sufficient.

stmt1 says that 15x + 29y = 440 or x = (440-29y)/15

This equation is true for only positive integers of x = 10 and y = 10. Hence, should be sufficient.

i too agree with A..

we know that .15x+.29y=4.4

since we can only have x and y as integers..we know that they bought 10 of each..

sufficient
