A. y (1 - x) < x
B. y (1 - x) > x
C. y (1 + x) < x
D. y (1 + x) > x
E. y (x - 1) > x

Let Take values of X=11%, Y=10%

Checking Option C: 0.10 (1 + 0.11)
0.10 (1.11) < 0.11
0.111 < 0.11
which is 11.1% more than X (11%)

Where i am going wrong? Please explain. For me Answer is D.

Given:
A = (1+x)B, B = (1-y)C and A > C.

From above: A > C, So
(1+x)(1-y)C > C
(1+x)(1-y) > 1, and solving this results y(1+x) < x

Imo C

A=(1+X)B

B=(1-y)C

A=(1+x)(1-y)C

A/C = (1+x)(1-y)
A/C >1 So (1+x)(1-y) >1 or 1-y+x-xy >1

-y+x-xy >0 -y(1+x) > -x

y(1+x) < x Re: A is x % more than B. B is y % less than C. If A, B, and C are positiv   [#permalink] 08 Dec 2019, 03:34
