Question : y^3 = x^(3/2) = ? we need x to answer

(1) x=y^x, and from the question we know that x=y^2, so x=2, Sufficient

(2) x^3 = 8, x=2, Sufficient

(1) $$x = y^x$$

(2) $$x^3 = 8$$

can somebody explain how 1 is sufficient. i am getting confused...help

Easy. Always try to simplify the stimulus- manipulate the equations in their given form in a granular more clear way.

\sqrt{x}=y - square both sides
x=y^2

St 1

Substitute. Y^2=y^x

suff

St 2

X must be 2- there is no ambiguity since y is to an odd power
