Three friends rented a car for a week and divided the cost equally. What was the total cost of renting the car ?

(1) If the three friends had kept the car for a second week, they could have obtained the two-week rate, which was 1.5 times the cost of a one-week rental.

(2) If a fourth friend had joined the three friends and the cost had been divided equally among the four friends, the cost to each of the original three would have been reduced by $15 ?

Kudos for a correct solution.We need to find T = A+B+C; since A=B=C T=3A =>T/3 = A

1) no $ value provided - Not sufficient

2) from this t/4 = A and t/3-t/4 = $15 Solving this will give t= $180 - Sufficient

Ans B
