### HideShow timer Statistics

A newer machine, working alone at its constant rate, can fill a production order in half the time required by two older machines working together at their constant rates. If the three machines are used together, will they require more than 1 hour to fill a production order?

(1) Each of the older machines, working alone at its constant rate, can fill half a production order in less than 4 hours.

(2) If the newer machine were to double its rate, it could fill a production order working alone in less than one hour

By statement 2 , if normally new machine would take less than 2 hours, so that means going with the question the old machines would take less than 4 hours to fill the production unit.

But this way it is contradicting statement 1,I read somewhere Statements dont contradict in DS. Also is statement 2 not sufficient to answer this

OA - E
