What is the value of the ratio of x to y^2?

(1) The ratio of x^2 to y is 5/3.
stmt 1 says x2/y = 5/3
possibilities of x might be 5/3 and y might be 5/3
X might be 1 and y might be 3/5 hence not sufficient

(2) The ratio of x to 1 is 5/3.
x/1 = 5/3
hence we will be knowing value of X,but not aware of Y.
hecne insufficient

Together stmt 1 and Stmt 2

We are getting the value of X from stmt 2 x =5/3.
sub same in stmt 1 xx^2/y = 5/3.then y =5/3.
x/y^2 =3/5
