### Discussion :: Area - Data Sufficiency 1 (Q.No.2)

Each of the questions given below consists of a statement and / or a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statement(s) is / are sufficient to answer the given question. Read the both statements and

- Give answer (A) if the data in Statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
- Give answer (B) if the data in Statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
- Give answer (C) if the data either in Statement I or in Statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.
- Give answer (D) if the data even in both Statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
- Give answer(E) if the data in both Statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.

can anybody explain why the data is not sufficient as only the length is asked? |

Can't height of triangle be the length of rectangle? Sorry that the answer to the question would be E. |

Area of rectangle = Area of right angled triangle. l*b = 1/2 (b*h). (so b is given as 40 and h is given as 50. So substitute the both values in above formula). Hence, l*40 = 1/2(40*50). l = 40*50/2*40. l = 25. To prove the statement of area of rectangle is equal to right angled triangle you can just substitute in the formulas. Area of rectangle = l*b = 25*40 = 1000. Area of right angled triangle = 1/2(b*h) = 1/2(40*50) = 1000. Hence, both are equal the statement is proved. So the answer is E. Hope you guys understood! |

I think the correct answer is E. |
