We'll raise both sides to the power of 2: n = 4 - that's our answer. Sufficient! B, C and E are eliminated!

(2) $$\sqrt{4n}$$ = 4

We'll raise both sides to the power of 2: 4n = 16 ==> n = 4 - that's our answer. Sufficient! A is eliminated. Answer D.

(1) $$\sqrt{n}$$ = 2

(2) $$\sqrt{4n}$$ = 4

we are looking for the value of n.

statement 1: $$\sqrt{n}$$ = 2 = n = 4. Sufficient. to get the value of n , square both sides of the equation.

Statement 2: $$\sqrt{4n}$$ = 4 = n=4. The same as 1.

D is the correct answer. Re: What is the value of n?   [#permalink] 16 Nov 2018, 10:57
