i think am way off cause the solution came too easy?????

1- x>2y INS could be range of #s

2- x<y + 2 INS same as above

COMBINED we get (and i hope this is right)

2y<y + 2

y<2 SUFFICIENT

It cant be that easy. someone wake me up please

"C"

state 1.....x = 10...y<5.......x = 2.....y <1......insuff

state 2......x = 10.....y > 8......x = 2....y > 1....insuff

combine.....we have x > 2y......eqn 1
change the statement 2......like this......-x > -y-2...........eqn2

0 > y -2.........y<2....suff
