What is the value of │x + 7│?
(1) │x + 3│= 14
Am I missing something here. My ans was C.
Stat 1 gives two results; x= 11,-17
Stat 2 gives two results; x= 11,-15
Combining these two, we get that x=11 satisfies the statements and answers the question.
I have read this reasoning somewhere. Pls suggest whether the logic is correct or not, or what should be the strategy behind these type of questions when one variable satisfies both statements and in turn becomes sufficient to answer the question.
