Plug values x=2,y=3,z=4 , which satisfies the condition 1<x<y<z
If we use this values,
z(x + 1) = 4(3) = 12
z(y + 1) = 4(4) = 16
x(y + z) = 2(7) = 14
y(x + z) = 3(6) = 18
z(x + y) = 4(5) = 20
z(x+y) (Option E) has the greatest value.

E. z(x + y)


We can let x = 2, y = 3, and z = 4, and we have:

A) z(x+1)

4(3) = 12

B) z(y+1)

4(4) = 16

C) x(y+z)

2(7) = 14

D) y(x+z)

3(6) = 18

E) z(x+y)

4(5) = 20

Answer: E
