Hi, I am not sure of a general way but the way I would do this problem is as follows: since x<8/9 and y<1/8. x+y has to be less than 8/9+1/8 i.e, x+y<73/72 x+y<73/72 doesnt necessarily mean x+y<1. it could be 1.00000009 or some value less than 73/72 but greater than 1. so, my answer would be (E).

ok here you go:

1st day - 0.1

2nd day - either 0.4(0.1+0.3) or 0.2(0.1 x 2) . We choose the least so 0.2

4th day - either 0.7(0.4 + 0.3) or 0.8(0.4 x 2). We choose 0.7

Ans is 0.7

Here is my analysis... A)"believed to be" seems to be modifying 36 feet, since its immediately after 36 feet ...

IMO Ans is (E) Stmt 1 alone is not sufficient as it talks only about p Stmt 2 is not sufficient as it talks only about q. Stmt 1 and 2 together may give some information, but there can be different cases such as p>q, when p=0.45 and q=0.4 p<q, when p=0.2 and q=0.45 p=q, when p=0.45 and q=0.45. Since...

[ As you can see its forming squares on both sides...
