Given data:
y = 3x
z = 2y

Therefore, z can be rewritten as 2(3x) = 6x

Since we need to find the value of the expression in terms of x,

x + y + z = x + 3x + 6x = 10x(Option A)

Let x = 1

So, y = 3 & z = 6

Hence, \(x + y + z\) = \(1 + 6 + 3\) = \(10\)

Thus, in terms of x the value of \(x + y + z\) = \(10\)

Hence, answer must be (A) \(10x\)

z = 2y
y = 3x
so z = 2(3x) = 6x

x + 3x + 6x = 10x

Variables in the answer choices tell you to choose your own values! The phrase 'in terms of' is another clue that this will work.

Let's say x = 1.

Then y = 3 and z = 6.

x + y + z = 1 + 3 + 6 = 10.

Plug x into the answer choices to see which one equals 10. In this case it's A.

(A) 10x
(B) 9x
(C) 8x
(E) 6x
(E) 5x

Just substitute the values into the last equation

x+3x+6x=10x,option A
