A refrigerator holds a number of apples, bananas, carrots an

But why S(2) is not sufficient ? It is 2x + 5x + 3x + 7x = 280 Or what should be the language for s(2) to be sufficient ? Be careful. If you feel that the ratio A : B : C : D = 2x : 5x : 3x : 7x, then you'd be able to answer the target question WITHOUT using any statements. Cheers, Brent[/quote] Hm...

What is the value of x?

Brent and Fabio, Thanks for your response. The above is a very good way of solving this question with coordinate geometry, but the one thing that I forgot in this question is that it is not given that x is an integer. So, x can have infinitely many values. However, it's a nice way of thinking this q...

Thanks but i am not sure how did you decide to go for C. If nature of y coefficients of the two equations is opposite, then there will be unique value of x and y. Is this the reason for not attempting s(1) and s(2) independently ? Can you please elaborate more on this part ? I am just interested in ...
