Kimberly sent gifts to her friends. For each gift she used either a rectangular gift box or a cylindrical gift box. Each box contains exactly one gift: either a fragrant soap or a pack of spicy roasted almonds. If half of the boxes she sent were cylindrical, and a third of the rectangular boxes contained soap, then how many cylindrical boxes contained soap?

(1) The total number of cylindrical boxes Kimberly sent is 50% greater than the number of rectangular boxes containing almonds she sent.
(2) Kimberly sent 16 rectangular boxes containing almonds.

Answer: E.

Hope it's clear.


Using both statements, you can calculate cylindrical boxes containing soap... You made a typo - 16 should be in Almond cylinder box rather than almond total box.
