To be eligible for retirement benefits at the Omega Corporation, the sum of an employee's age, in years, and the number of years employment must be at least 70. If x, where x <70, is a certain employee's age when hired and y is the minimum number of years of employment required for the employee to be eligible for retirement benefits, which of the following equations represents the relationship between x and y?
A. xy = 70 B. x + y = 70 C. 2x + y = 70 D. x + 2y = 70 E. 2x + 2y = 70
in task they are talking about present age, but x is defined as age when hired. You have to add y to x to receive the present age and once more to add y to receive 70.
So that's D.

Employee's age + years of employment = 70 At the joining his age was y years and he did job y years. So, the employee's current age = y+y = 2y (employee's age when hired + years of employment) + years of employment = 70 (x + y ) + y =70 x + 2y =70 _________________

To be eligible for benefits {age}+{employment years} must be at least 70;
We are told that when a certain employee was hired he was x years old and that the he needed minimum y years to be eligible for benefits.
Now, after y years of employment, when the employee will be be eligible for benefits, the employee will be x+y years old and will have y years of employment, thus {age after y years}+{employment years}=(x+y)+y=x+2y=70.

Let me ask you a question: if a person was hired y years ago, how many years of employment does he have NOW?
