SOLUTIONWhat is the value of n in the equation  25 + 19 + n = s ?(1) s = 2 >  25 + 19 + n = 2. We have a linear equation with one unknown, hence we can solve for it. Sufficient. (2) n/s = 4 > s=n/4 >  25 + 19 + n = n/4. We have a linear equation with one unknown, hence we can solve for it. Sufficient. Answer: D.

St 1: Sufficient: Substitute S=2 in 25+19+n=2, Value of n can be found out from this linear equation. St 2: Sufficient: Substitute s=n/4 in 25+19+n=n/4, Value of n can be found out from this linear equation. Hence Answer D

What is the value of n in the equation  25 + 19 + n = s ? If we have s known then, we can easily find n. (1) s = 2sufficient (2) n/s = 4 => s=n/4sufficient Answer : D

D straight Bunuel but could someone think about n/s=4 that n and s can be both positive or negative ?? 16/4 = 4 or 16/4 = 4 so is not safely to cross multiply S ?? or this concern regards questions in which < or > are involved ??' Thanks

Thanks You should be concerned about the signs only with inequalities. For equations you can safely crossmultiply.

1)n6=2 .. sufficient 2)n/4=s or,n6=n/4  sufficient. so answer is D

hello, for statement (2), what if
n=4 and s=1
then 25 + 19 + 4 = 2 but s=1 NOT GOOD
also consider if n=8 and s=2
then 25 + 19 + 8 = 2 and s = 2 GOOD
since it is possible to pick different sets of numbers that yield conflicting answers, shouldn't this statement alone be insufficient? (refer to OG13 DS#41 for comparison)

since it is possible to pick different sets of numbers that yield conflicting answers, shouldn't this statement alone be insufficient? (refer to OG13 DS#41 for comparison) n=4 and s=1 do not satisfy  25+19+n=s. We have two equations:  25+19+n=s and n/s=4. Solving gives n=8 and s=2.

Answer D For the second statement: I know I should stop after knowing that it's a linearwith one unknown, I'm rusty on my math, how does this become I get this, N/S=4 S=4N (multiply each side) (lost in this step) I did the following N=S+6 N=4N+6 3N=6 3 3 N=2, (should be positive) Not sure how I got a negative, I guessed correctly, the second time i worked the problem. I'm not sure how the MGMAT guide states that the number becomes S=1/4N, maybe so it's not negative, it's placed with a fraction? Can someone refresh me with that concept. thanks.

Not sure I understand everything in your post but n/s = 4 means n = 4s (multiply both sides by s) not s = 4n. Hope it helps.

Thank you for the other concept, I missed that small detail in trying to explain the problem. \(n = 4s\) > \(s = \frac{n}{4}\) or \(\frac{1}{4}*n\) (it's not \(\frac{1}{4n}\)).

(1) s = 2 (2) n/s = 4
Given: 25 + 19 + n = s Simplify: 6 + n = s Add 6 to both sides to get: n = s + 6Target question: What is the value of n? Statement 1: s = 2 We already know that n = s + 6Replace s with 2 to get: n = 2 + 6 = 8The answer to the target question is n = 8Since we can answer the target question with certainty, statement 1 is SUFFICIENT Statement 2: n/s = 4 Multiply both sides by s to get: n = 4s Divide both sides by 4 to get: n/4 = s We already know that n = s + 6Replace s with s with n/4 to get: n = n/4 + 6Multiply both sides by 4 to get: 4n = n + 24 Subtract n from both sides to get: 3n = 24 Solve, n = 8 The answer to the target question is n = 8Since we can answer the target question with certainty, statement 2 is SUFFICIENT Answer: D Cheers, Brent
