.profile is used when you log in, .bashrc is exectuted
if another bash shell is started. Usually both are run when
you login. Having paths redundantly added in both
will cause no harm. Having it only in .profile may
not work if you log in as someone else. Having it in
.bashrc would fail if you used a different shell.
So, simple answer, it doesn't hurt to use both, but
technically only one will suffice.
