S has 2,000 calories per kilogram, and 150 grams of protien per kilogram.

T has 1,500 calories per kilogram, and 90 grams of protein per kilogram.

The table above gives the number of calories and grams of protein per kilogram of foods S and T. If a total of 7 kilograms of S and T are combined to make a certain food mixture, how many kilograms of food S are in the mixture?

(1) The mixture has a total of 12,000 calories.
(2) The mixture has a total of 810 grams of protein.

the answer says D, either is sufficient, however I say C. it seems you have 2 unknowns and 2 equations.

I know it cant be D because simply using (1), we know that you could have either 6 grams of S and 0 grams of T, or 8 grams of T and 0 grams of S. Both of these situations would add up to 12,000 calories, so therefore it cannot be D, right?

(1) we need to come up with 12,000 cal. which means that there must be an even no. of T kilograms - 2, 4 or 6.

T kg. cal. S kg. cal. Total
2 3,000 5 10,000 13,000
4 6,000 3 6,000 12,000
6 9,000 1 2,000 11,000

Sufficient

(2) we need to come up with 810 g. of protein. Lets take T again and start from the middle.

T kg. g. protein S kg. g. protein Total
3 270 4 600 870
4 360 3 450 810

Sufficient

the original question gives you one equation so all you need is just one more

D as well, you have X + Y = 7 where x and y are the number of kilogrtams respectively

each statement gives you another statement , therefore each statement gives you 2 different equations 2 variables , which are both solvable
