The total no of books at Store X = B1
The total no of books at Store Y = B2

The number of hardcover books at bookstore X = 0.675*B1
The number of hardcover books at bookstore Y = 0.669*B2

Statement 1 There is the same number of books at both stores.
B1= B2
The number of hardcover books at bookstore Y = 0.669*B1
Not Sufficient

Statement 2 There are 20,000 more hardcover books at bookstore X than there are at bookstore Y.
0.675*B1- 0.669*B2 = 20,000
Not Sufficient

Combined Statement 1 & Statement 2

B1=B2= B

0.675*B - 0.669*B = 20000

B= 20000*1000/6

Hardcover books are at bookstore Y = 0.669 * 20000*1000/6

Ans. C
