(1) usual price: \$0,50

-> \$0,50*10= \$5 => Usual total price --> No info about the sale price --> Not sufficient

(2) sale price: \$0,40

-> \$0,40*10= \$4 => Usual sale price --> No info about the usual price --> Not sufficient

Combining 1 and 2

(0,50*10)-(0,40*10)=5-4=\$1 --> One \$1 could be saved --> Sufficient

The usual price of a bagel was reduced during a sale. How much money could be saved by purchasing 10 bagels at the sale price rather than at the usual price?

(1) The usual price for a bagel is \$0.50 per bagel.
(2) The sale price for a bagel is \$0.40 per bagel.

Target question: How much money could be saved by purchasing 10 bagels at the sale price rather than at the usual price?

Statement 1: The usual price for a bagel is \$0.50 per bagel.
Since there's no information about the SALE price, there's no way to calculate the amount saved.
Since we cannot answer the target question with certainty, statement 1 is NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The sale price for a bagel is \$0.40 per bagel.
Since there's no information about the REGULAR price, there's no way to calculate the amount saved.
Since we cannot answer the target question with certainty, statement 2 is NOT SUFFICIENT

Statements 1 and 2 combined
At the REGULAR price of \$0.50 per bagel, 10 bagels costs \$5.00
At the SALE price of \$0.40 per bagel, 10 bagels costs \$4.00
So, one would save \$1 by purchasing 10 bagels at the sale price rather than at the usual price
Since we can answer the target question with certainty, the combined statements are SUFFICIENT

Cheers,
Brent
