Given: $$December=Average+50$$. Not sufficient.

(2) Silvia's income in December was twice her average monthly income during the year. Given: $$December=2*Average$$. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) We have two distinct linear equations with two variables, hence we can solve it. Sufficient.

This is probably a silly approach. But taking #1, can't you go:

For total income during the year, T = 12x where is the original average.

But with #1, T=11x+50

Solving the two simultaneously, T=50 and hence D=50+50 = 100.

Would love to know where the flaw is in my approach. I am sure I am doing something silly.
