(1) x + (6/y) = 3
(2) y = x + 2


Kudos for a correct solution.


y=2x+2
x+y=3x+2=?

1. xy+6=3y
2 Unknowns
Not Sufficient

2. y=x+2
2x+2=x+2
x=0
y=2
x+y=0+2=2

Sufficient

Answer: B

Kudos for a correct solution.


1. Put y=2x+2
x+6/2x+2=3
Solving for x, x=0 or x=2. Therefore, we will get two values of y and two values fo x+y. Insuffcient.

2.Put y=2x+2
2x+2=x+2
x=0
y=2
x+y=2 Sufficient
Answer =B

St 1 Solving the equation we get 2(X^2)-4X=0
Which gives us two values of x, x=2 or x = 0 -> NS
St 2 Solving the equation we get x=0 and y = 2 ; x+y = 2 S

Ans B
