(A) 1
(B) 2
(C) 3
(D) 5
(E) 6


\(x = 3z + 1\)

\(y = 2z - 1\)


Given z = 4

So, \(y = 2*4 - 1\)

Or, \(y = 7\)

And

\(x = 3*4 + 1\)

Or, \(x = 13\)



Quote:
then 2x is how much greater than 3y


2x = 26 & 3y = 21

Thus, 2x is 5 more than 3y, answer must be (D) 5

(A) 1

(E) 6


x (is equal to) = (1 more than the product of 3 and z) 3z+1 => x=3z+1
y (is equal to) = (1 less than the product of 2 and z) 2z-1 => y=2z-1

2x (is)= (how much) ? (greater than) + 3y => 2x-3y=?
=>\(2(3z+1)-3(2z-1)=?\) when z is 4
=>\(2(12+1)-3(8-1)=?\)
=>\(26-21=?\)
=>\(5\)

Is this really a level 600-700 question? Don't see how anyone can get tricked by it.

We can create the equations:

x = 1 + 3z

and

y = 2z - 1

When z is 4, x is 13 and y is 7.

So 2x - 3y = 26 - 21 = 5.

Answer: D
