Is the range of the integers 6, 3, y, 4, 5, and x greater than 9 ?

(1) y > 3x
(2) y > x > 3

when i am combining 2 stmnts i am getting C as the answer.how could that X minimum value is 4.
(1+2) 3<x<y and 3x<y. so
3<3x<y. Is this correct

Is the range of the integers 6, 3, y, 4, 5, and x greater than 9 ?

Given integers are: {3, 4, 5, 6, x, y}

(1) y > 3x --> if x=1 and y=4 then the range=6-1=6<9 but if x=100 then the range>9. Not sufficient.

(2) y > x > 3 --> if x=4 and y=5 then the range=6-3=3<9 but if x=100 then the range>9. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) From x > 3 we have that the least value of x is 4, and from y > 3x=12 we have that the least value of y is 13, hence the least value of the range is 13-3=10>9. Sufficient.

Answer: C.

Hey Bunuel,

In the question, we are talking about integers so why are we not considering negative values. Wouldn't the statements be insufficient in that case. Can you please explain why negative integers are out of scope

Second statement says that y > x > 3, so both x and y are positive.

Hoe it's clear.

Hi Bunuel,

From x > 3 the minimal value of x is 4, and the min value of y is 13 as per y> 3x=12, So the range should br 13-4=9
Can you please explain why the value of the range is 10 .

Thanks

It should be 13-4 = 9 only.

It MUST be a typo from Bunuel side.

Sorry, I missed it. It's not a typo. Thanks for bringing this point.

He has written the least value of Range. We know that y is atleast 13 and the lowest integer in the list is 3.

So, range would be atleast 13-3 = 10 >9

Hence, C.
