Is x + 2y - 3z > 0?

Statement 1:
4x - 3y - z > 0
(x + 2y - 3z) - 5y + 2z > 0
x + 2y - 3z > 5y - 2z
Statement is insufficient.

Statement 2:
3x - 5y + 2z > 0
(x + 2y - 3z) - 7y + 5z > 0
x + 2y - 3 z > 7y - 5z

Combining statements 1 and 2:
4x - 3y - z > 0 and 3x - 5y + 2z > 0
Adding the inequalities because both are greater than 0 (we can't subtract the inequalities because we don't know if the result is greater than 0 or less than 0 as either could be possible)
7x - 8y - z > 0
(x + 2y - 3z) + 6x - 10y + 2z > 0
x + 2y - 3z > 10y - 2z - 6x
Insufficient.

Answer is E.

combining both statements: subtract statement 2 from 1 it gives x+2y-3z<0.. so is the answer.

Hi reshamdhaga

if you subtract i.e multiply the inequality by -1 then the sign of the inequality will change. then you cannot add the two inequalities.

in this case 3x+2z−­5y>0 will become -3x-2z+5y<0

so you cannot add the two inequalities

answer will be E
