I'm studying in this way: math (1 hour per day), verbal 5 hours per week. honestly i resolve 50% of the questions I try on the gmatclub. i don't know..maybe I should try a gmat practice test to assess myself, but i feel not so confident. when I read your posts you are amazing, being able to solve very hard question according to me.

If O is the center of the circle and if Company H's total expenses are$5,400,000, what are the expenses for Division R ?

(1) x = 94
(2) The total expenses for Divisions S and T are twice as much as the expenses for Division R.

Target question: How many of the five divisions have an expense which is more than the average (arithmetic mean) of the expenses of the five divisions?

This is a great candidate for REPHRASING the target question.

IMPORTANT: If we add the percentages (a%, b%, c%, d%, and e%), we get 100%
So, the average percent share = 100%/5 = 20%

So, we can REPHRASE the target question....
REPHRASED target question: How many of the five divisions have MORE than 20% of the TOTAL expenses

Aside: We have a free video with tips on rephrasing the target question: http://www.gmatprepnow.com/module/gmat-data-sufficiency?id=1100

Now onto the statements....

Statement 1: a > 19 > b > c > d > e
We know that b, c, d and e have less than 19% of the total expenses, which means they each have less than 20% of the TOTAL expenses.
If b, c, d and e each = less than 19%, then b+c+d+e is less than (4)(19%)
(4)(19%) = 74%, which means division a must comprise more than 26% percent of the TOTAL expenses.
So, exactly 1 division has MORE than 20% of the TOTAL expenses
Since we can answer the REPHRASED target question with certainty, statement 1 is SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: a > 21 > b > c > d > e
There are several values of a, b, c, d and e that satisfy statement 2. Here are two:
Case a: a = 23, b = 20.5, c = 19.5, d = 19 and e = 18. In this case, 2 divisions have MORE than 20% of the TOTAL expenses
Case b: a = 62, b = 11, c = 10, d = 9 and e = 8. In this case, 1 division has MORE than 20% of the TOTAL expenses
Since we cannot answer the REPHRASED target question with certainty, statement 2 is NOT SUFFICIENT

HI GMATPrepNow,

I think the highlighted text is NOT what is being asked. Kindly relook into the question stem. I think this is a right solution to some other question.

Or am I missing something here?

Having said that - The video is very useful and well explained. Thanks for sharing
