There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
x^2 < x ?
<=> x^2 - x < 0 ?
<=> x*(x-1) < 0 ?
<=> 0 < x < 1 ?
x^2 +y^2 < 9
<=> x^2 + y^2 < 3^2 >>> In the XY plan, this represents a surface delimited by the circle with 0(0,0) as center and 3 as radius.
So, 0 < x < 1 creates a part of this circle's surface.
From 1 y^2 > 8
<=> y > 2*qrt(2) or y < -2*qrt(2)
Creating 2 horizontal lines (Fig 1), one at -2*qrt(2) and one at 2*qrt(2), we observe especially for negative values of x that we have a surface out of 0 < x < 1.
Also, we have a part of the surface created by these 2 lines that are in the 0 < x < 1.
INSUFF.
From 2 x=3*y
<=> y = 1/3*x >>> it's a line passing by 0(0,0) (Fig 2).
All negative values of x will create negative values of y. In this case, we are not in the section 0 < x < 1.
Also, we have a part of the line that passes throught 0 < x < 1.
INSUFF.
Both (1) & (2) Here, looking the 2 conditions and so 2 graphs, there is no common area within the circle.... So, it's pretty weird and we cannot conclude...
I tend to say (E).

statement 1 simply means that y^2 is greater than 8.. or X is less than 1..we dont know if X is positive or negative..therefore insuff..
statement 2..x is 3 greater than y..to me means x=y+3?
not knowing the sign of y or x ..we cant really say anything ..
together..we know that y has to be negative..then we know that x is 3+y; which means x is positive..and is less than 1..this is sufficient..
C it is..

Yes... Probably, it's not 3 times as I understood it but rather 3 upper than y.
So, we have a line y = x-3 and then make sens to have only a few part of it, at bottom of the circle, that is only between 0 < x < 1 limit and y < -2*sqrt(2).
