t=9/2=4.5 then greatest integer less than t is 4
t=(-3/2)^2=2.25 then 2 is greatest int less than 2.25

so each statement is enough alone imo

unless theres a trick, it should be D

both statements give you t=9/4, which is just over 2. The largest integer not bigger then t is 1

so when you divide 9/4 = 2.85 so the greatest integer less than 2.85 is 2? is this correct? Answer D

Both statements give the same result which is 9/4. greatest integer less than 9/4 will be 2. Is there some hitch there or the question is downright easy :roll:

We need to determine the greatest integer that is less than t.

Statement One Alone:

t = 9/4

t = 2 ¼, so the greatest integer less than t is 2. Statement one alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Statement Two Alone:

t = (-3/2)^2

Again, t = 2 ¼, so the greatest integer less than t is 2. Statement two alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Answer: D
