Question: What is the perimeter of the triangle OPQ?

NOTE: the three right angle triangles that we see in the figure are similar triangles. See attachment

Statement 1) The area of triangle OPQ is 50.
i.e. (1/2)*OQ*5 = 50
i.e. OQ = 20
hence, now we can calculate all the sides of each triangle hence
SUFFICIENT

Statement 2) OQ = 20

Using similar triangle property as mentioned in attachment we can find all sides of triangle hence
SUFFICIENT

Answer: Option D
