Arrived at D but took freaking 4.5 minutes.

Take X=15 and y =25 we will see that last week Earnings = 182 and this week = 362. So if he sells 26 bikes he will make more than 2 times what he made last week. Y need not be greater than 2x

y> x obvious if he needs to make more money this week

y > 3 should be true because if y <=3 and even if x=0 his current week sal will NOT be double of last week's

Hence D. Any easy ways fellas??
