If the tick marks shown on the number line above are equally spaced and if x and y are the numbers designating the end points of an interval, as shown, what is the value of x?

(1) x = (3y)/4

(2) y = 2

There are 8 divisions. Let the total length of these 8 equally spaced divisions be 'D'

So we have ,

D/8 = |y-x| ---> Absolute sign signifies the magnitude of the length between x & y, irrespective of their signs.

Statement1: x = (3y)/4

or y= (4x) / 3

Two variables, one equation -- Not Sufficient

Statement 2: y = 2

D/8 = (x-2)

Two variables, one equation -- Not Sufficient

Combining 1 & 2 ,

substitute to get x= (3/2) ---------> You need not waste your time here to get the value because you know that this surely will give you a definite value for x.

"C" in my opinion.
