What percent of group of $$10$$ turtles no have spots?

1) $$5$$ turtles no have spots.
2) $$50$$ percent turtles in group have spots.

To solve, we want percent of turtles without spots in group of $$10$$.
Statement 1: $$5$$ turtles no have spots. Since total turtles in group is $$10$$, we can say $$5$$ out of $$10$$, or $$50\%$$, no have spots. Sufficient.
Statement 2: $$50\%$$ turtles in group have spots. This means other $$50\%$$ no have spots. Sufficient.
