[quote="albany09"]If x and y are integers, is y an even integer?
(1) 2y – x = x^2 – y^2
(2) x is an odd integer.

from 1

2y – x = x^2 – y^2 ,

2y+y^2 = x^2 +x

y(2+y) = x(x+1) 2 consecutive intigers = even

thus

y(2+y) = even , ( 2y+y^2) is even, only even + even or odd+odd = even, since 2y is even thus y^2 is even too, therfore y is even..suff

FROM 2

INSUFF
