(1) No way of knowing the cost of either size from this statement.

(2) There are only 2 combinations from 64 and 48 to get to 192 ounces.
192/64 = 3 and 192/48 =4.
so \$18/3 = \$6 & \$18/4 = \$4.5

However, since we don't know what the customer bought it is insufficient.

When plugging in either value in statement 1 it comes out to the same amount of the other value as found in statement 2.

If one 64 ounce = \$6 then \$15 - 6 = 9 9/2 = \$4.5 for 48 ounce

Therefore C.
