What is the number of members of Club X who are at least 35 years of age?

(1) Exactly 3/4 of the members of club X are under 35 years of age --> 1/4 of the members are at least 35 years of age. But we don't how many members there are in club X. Not sufficient.

(2) The 64 women in Club X constitute 40 percent of the club's membership --> # of members of the club X is 64/0.4 = 160. But we know nothing about their age. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) The total number of members is 160, out of which 1/4, or 40, are at least 35 years of age. Sufficient.

Answer: C.

Clearly, they've mentioned women to throw the reader off and confuse him or her.

Q: how many members are 35 or older?

We think: value question asking us to solve for an actual number, so we need info about numbers!

1) nothing about actual numbers (i.e. just a fraction) - insufficient.

2) nothing about age breakdown - insufficient.

Eliminate A, B and D.

Together: (2) gives us a percent and a part, so we can figure out the whole, i.e. total number of members. Now we can use (1) to calculate how many members are 35 or older.

Together sufficient, choose (C)!
