A rental car agency owns a total of 5x cars and 2x trucks, where x is a positive integer. If the agency purchases c new cars, will the new ratio of cars to trucks be at least 3 to 1 ? (1) c = x + 5 (2) x = 11

• Total trucks = 2x.
• New cars purchased = c
c ≥ x or not. Thus, if c ≥ x, then the ratio will be at least 3 to 1. Keeping this in mind, let’s analyze each statement. Step 2: Analyze individual statements Statement 1: c = x + 5
Hence, statement 1 is sufficient and we can eliminate answer options B, C, and E. Statement 2: x = 11.
Hence, statement 2 is not sufficient and the current answer is Option A.

(1) c = x + 5 (2) x = 11 Total cars = \(5x + c\) & Total trucks = \(2x\) Question: Is \(\frac{5x + c}{2x} > \frac{3}{1}\) ? > Is \(5x + c > 6x\) ? > Is \(c > x\) ? (1) \(c = x + 5\) > \(c\) is definitely greater than \(x\) > Sufficient (2) \(x = 11\) We do not know anything about the value of "\(c\)" > Insufficient Option A

(1) c = x + 5 (2) x = 11 Original ratio of Cars : Trucks = 5x : 2x. That means the company already have 2.5 times cars to trucks. If c is equal or more than 50% of 2x, i.e if c is more than x than the ratio of Cars to trucks will be at least 3 to 1. 1) c is 5 more than x. Sufficient. 2) It only tells us there were 55 cars and 22 trucks before adding the new cars. Not sufficient. A is the answer.
