What is the hundredths digit of the decimal z?

Let's say \(z=a.bcd\). The hundredths digit of z would be the value of \(c\). So the question is \(c=?\)

(1) The tenths digit is 100z is 2 --> \(100z=100*a.bcd=abc.d\) --> the tenths digit of \(100z\) is the value of \(d\). So \(d=2\). Not sufficient to calculate \(c\).

(2) The units digit of 1,000z is 2 --> \(1000z=1000*a.bcd=abcd\) --> the units digit of \(1000z\) is the value of \(d\). So \(d=2\). Not sufficient to calculate \(c\).

(1)+(2) No new info, only the value of \(d\) is known. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.

z = 0.abcd and we are looking for b

1. 100z = ab.cd c = 2 (insufficient)
2. 1,000z = abc.d c = 2 (insufficient)

Both of these statements actually mean that thousandths digit of z is 2
So we can't get to hundredths digit of z
hence E

We got that d = 2, not z. d is a THOUSANDTHS digit of z (z=a.bcd) so the TENTHS digitt of 100z (100z=100*a.bcd=abc.d), which in (1) we are told to be 2.

P.S. Please do NOT double-post. Thank you.
