Robots X, Y, and Z each assemble components at their respective constant rates. If \(r_x\) is the ratio of Robot X's constant rate to Robot Z's constant rate and \(r_y\) is the ratio of Robot Y's constant rate to Robot Z's constant rate, is Robot Z's constant rate the greatest of the three?

I think E Lets take V as Robot Z's constant rate

is Robot Z's constant rate the greatest of the three?

X:Y:Z=Va:Vb:V now to have V highest we need to know whether V is <0 or >0 V could be 2 or say, 1/2 it changes the whole picture

Robots X, Y, and Z each assemble components in their respective constant rates. If a is the ration of Robot X's constant rate to Robot Z's constant rate and b is the ratio of Robot Y's constant rate to Robot Z's constant rate, is Robot Z's constant rate the greatest of the three. 1) a < b 2) b < 1 _________________

We need both the information if the constant rate for Z is greater or not. 1. says that constant rate of Y is greater than X. x/z < x/y 2. says that constant rate of Y is smaller than Z. y/z <1

Can some explain the reasoning behind this ques.

Robots X, Y, and Z each assemble components at their respective constant rates. If rx is the ratio of robot X's constant rate to robot Z's constant rate and ry is the ratio of robot Y's constant rate to robot Z's constant rate, is robot Z's constant rate the greatest of the three?

Let the rates of robots X, Y, and Z be x, y, and z respectively. Given: \(r_x=\frac{x}{z}\) and \(r_y=\frac{y}{z}\). Question is \(z>x\) and \(z>y\)?

(1) \(r_x<r_y\) --> \(\frac{x}{z}<\frac{y}{z}\) --> \(x<y\). Not sufficient.

(2) \(r_y<1\) --> \(\frac{y}{z}<1\) --> \(y<z\). Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) As \(x<y\) and \(y<z\) then \(x<y<z\). Sufficient.
