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.
