We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

x < (-3/2)y. In order to satisfy this condition, x will be less than zero, when y is greater than zero and x may be less than zero or greater than zero, when y is less than zero.

Statement 1: Since y is greater than 0, x should always be less than zero.
Statement 2: 2x + 5y = 20, substituting x < (-3/2)y in this we get different values for y, and so x can be both positive or negative.

if y > 0, then right side of A is positive. For the left side to be greater than the right side, it too needs to be positive, which means x needs to be negative.

B is insufficient.
2*x+5*y-20=0
x can be 0, +ve or -ve and we can find a corresponding value for y to fit in the equation .

ST1 SINCE y>0
and -2*x>3*y
3Y IS APOSITIVE NUMBER
-2x to be greater than a positive number
x has to be negative -2 *-x will give A POSITIVE NUMBER bigger than this other positive number 3y sufficient yes

think it should be D) it is obvious why A is OK,Let's see B) From B) X=(20-5y)/2. When we substitute in the stem then we get that Y>10 or B) by itself is sufficient
