Of the 1400 college teachers surveyed, 42% said they considered engaging in research an essential goal. How many of the college teacher surveyed were women?

(1) In the survey 36% of men and 50% of women said that they consider engaging in research activity an essential goal.
(2) In the survey 288 men said that they consider engaging in research activity an essential goal.

(1) $$m+w=1400$$ and $$1400*0.42=0.36*m+0.5*w$$. Two unknowns two equations. Sufficient.
(2) From this we can calculate only that $$1400*0.42-288=300$$ women consider engaging in research activity an essential goal. No other info. Not sufficient.

Answer: A.
