Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
This is a tough 'un. First of all I'm guessing the sum is abcd, not cbcd as you wrote.
(1) b<c, Since the sums that lead to b and c are identical (y+v in the tens place and v+y in the hundreds place), the only way that this can happen is if the sum in the units place (v+z) is at least 10, and y+v is less than 10. This means that v+z = v+ (v+3) = 2v+3 > 10. Also we know that v+y = v+(v-3)=2v-3 < 10. This doesn't tell us what v is, only that v is between 4 and 6. Not suff.
(2) z>7, since z=v+3 this means that v>4. Again not suff.
Taking them together all we know is that v is either 5 or 6. But there is no way to know exactly what is a=v+3.
I think answer is D. From the information given we have: d=2v+3 c= 2v-3 b= 2v-3 c=3+v = z 1) b<c => 2v-3<3+v => v<6 We know that c#b, unless z+v>10. From this b+1=c. From this v>3. So the only possible values of v are 4 and 5. For v=4 is impossible, so v=5 - suff 2) z>7 => c>7 => 3+v>7 => v>4. So v could have possible values 5,6,7,8,9. For every v>=6 the result will have 5 digits. So v=5.
