In the number 1.3ab8, a and b respresent single positive digit. If x = 1.3ab8, what is the value of 10 - x?

1) If x is rounded to the nearest hundredth, then 10 - x = 8.66

2) If x is rounded to the nearest thousandth, then 10 - x = 8.664

Solution:

To find the value of 10 - x, find the value of a and b.

Considering statement (1) alone: 
10 - x = 8.66

⇒ x = 10 - 8.66 

⇒  x = 1.34
Comparing this value with 1.3ab8, the only information we get is that a can be either 3 or 4. Insufficient

Considering statement (2) alone:
10 - x = 8.664

⇒  x = 10 - 8.664  

⇒ x = 1.336
Comparing this value with 1.3ab8, it can be infered that a = 3 and b = 5 (using the rules of rounding off).  Sufficient

The answer is A.
