Insert value of x as "2" then you get

3*4+7*2= 28

28/2

Insert value of "3"

3*9+7*3= 48

48/3=16

Every time x is a multiple of y

Hence A is correct, IMHO

X square - x is a multiple of y

9 - 3 = 6

6 is a multiple of y

Which can be 2,3 and 6 : not sufficient

49-7=42

42 is a multiple of y which can be 42,21, 6,7 not sufficient

IMHO, I hope I helped

3y^2 +7y=x can be written as y(3y+7)=x which is denoted as x=ky but second equation is written as x(x-1)= ky which does not clearly state the relation between x and y

Kudos if understood!!!

Hi rajbeersingh717,
