What is the value of x?

Note that we are not told that x is an integer.

(1) When x is multiplied by 8, the result is between 50 and 60 --> 50<8x<60 --> 50/8<x<60/8 --> 6.25<x<7.5. Not sufficient.

(2) When x is doubled, the result is between 10 and 15 --> 10<2x<15 --> 5<x<7.5. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) 6.25<x<7.5. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.

1 is not sufficient, as it can have more than 1 possible answer(7 , 55.5/8 so on)

2. is not sufficient , as it could have x = 6 , 7 and some non integer values as well.

together still not sufficient as x can 55.5/8 or 59/8 or 7.. so on.

Answer is E.
