Mary persuaded n friends to donate \$500 each to her election campaign, and then each of these n friends persuaded n more people to donate \$500 each to Mary’s campaign. If no one donated more than once and if there were no other donations, what was the value of n?
(1) The first n people donated 1/16 of the total amount donated.
(2) The total amount donated was \$120,000

This is a Data Sufficiency question

I think something got messed up with this question. Looks like Statement 1 is missing information.
