Re: Given that X and Y are non–negative, what is the value of X? (1) 2X + [#permalink]
Given that $$X$$ and $$Y$$ are non–negative, what is the value of X?
(1) $$2X + 2Y ≤ 40$$
(2) $$X – 2Y ≤ 20$$

Statement 1: x+y < 20 (even without complying EQUAL rules, this statement is valid)
Case 1: X=0; y=0
Case 2: x=1; y =0
Different values of x satisfy statement 1. Insufficient

Statement 2: x-2Y <20(even without complying EQUAL rules, this statement is valid)
Case 1: X=0; y=0
Case 2: x=1; y =0
Different values of x satisfy statement 2. Insufficient

Since SAME SET OF DIFFERENT VALUES OF X satisfies the both statements, no need to go for COMBINING.
X CAN HAVE DIFFERENT VALUES (no unique Value)

I believe this question would be of sub 600 level.

I haven't thought about plugging zeros!
Easy picking.
