IMO: B

Question Stem:

\(\frac{(M + T + W + Th + F )}{5} = 9\)
(M + T + W + Th + F ) = 45
\(\frac{(M + T )}{2} = ?\)

St 1: On average, Rubi worked 9 hours a day during Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

\(\frac{( T + W + Th + F )}{4} = 9\)
Thus we get M = 9. Still T = ?
Hence not suff

St 2: On average, Rubi worked 10 hours a day during Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

\(\frac{( W + Th + F )}{3} = 10\)
( W + Th + F ) = 30
Thus M+T = 15
Hence suff

Forget conventional ways of solving math questions. In DS, Variable approach is the easiest and quickest way to find the answer without actually solving the problem. Remember equal number of variables and equations ensures a solution.


Last week, Rubi worked five days, from Monday to Friday inclusive. He worked on average (arithmetic mean) 9 hours a day. On average, how many hours a day did he work during Monday and Tuesday?

(1) On average, Rubi worked 9 hours a day during Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
(2) On average, Rubi worked 10 hours a day during Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.


Monday:m, Tuesday:t, Wednesday:w, Thurday:h, Friday:f. transforming the original condition and the question, we have
m+t+w+h+f=9*5=45. since the question is asking for m+t, m+t=45-(w+h+f) thus we just need to know w+h+f.
Since from 2) we have w+h+f=10*3=30, the condition is sufficient. Therefore the answer is B.
