    Hi AbeNeedsAnswers,

    We're asked for the value of W+Q. This DS question is based on a pattern that you are likely to see once on Test Day (hiding the answer to the question in some 'math steps'). There also appears to be a small 'typo' in Fact 2.

    1) 3W = 3 - 3Q

    We can rewrite this equation....
    3W = 3 - 3Q
    3W + 3Q = 3
    W + Q = 1 ... so we have the answer to the question.
    Fact 1 is SUFFICIENT

    2) 5W + 5Q = 5

    We can simplify this equation in much the same way that we simplified Fact 1:
    5W + 5Q = 5
    W + Q = 1 ... so we have the answer to the question.
    Fact 2 is SUFFICIENT

    Final Answer: D
