If $$a$$, $$b$$, and $$i$$ are integers, is $$4(3b + 2) = 5a$$?
>(1) If $$i$$ is divided by 5, then the quotient is $$a$$ and the remainder is 3.
>(2) If $$i$$ is divided by 12, then the quotient is $$b$$ and the remainder is 11.

According to Stat. (1+2),
>$$i = 5a + 3$$
>$$i = 12b + 11$$
Since they both equal $$i$$, you can set them equal to each other:
>$$5a + 3 = 12b + 11$$.
At this point, the fact that you see $$5a$$ should lead you to try to manipulate the equation to see if you can get $$5a = 4(3b+2)$$:
>$$5a = 12b + 11 - 3$$
>$$5a = 12b + 8$$
>$$5a = 4(3b + 2)$$.
Thus, the combination of the statements tells you that the equation in the question stem is always correct. That's a definite "Yes," so **Stat.(1+2) → Yes → S → C**.

Incorrect.

According to Stat. (1),
>$$i = 5a + 3$$.
Even if you find a definite value for $$a$$ from this equation, $$b$$ can have any value. There is no definite answer, so **Stat.(1) → No → IS → BCE**.
According to Stat. (2),
>$$i = 12b + 11$$.
Even if you find a definite value for $$b$$ from this equation, $$a$$ can have any value. There is no definite answer, so **Stat.(2) → No → IS → CE**.
