Official Solution:

Statement (1) by itself is insufficient. S1 provides us with value of $$x$$ but no value for $$y$$.

Statement (2) by itself is sufficient. Multiply the second statement times 1.5: $$33 = 9y^2 + 6x^2$$.

Another way to solve 6x^2+9y^2 = ? manipulate factoring out 3 (2x^2 + 3y^2) = ?

1) x=2

Insufficient. We don't know anything about y.

2) 6y^2 + 4x^2 = 22

Divide everything by 2, then you'll have 3y^2 + 2x^2 = 11

Substitute 11 in the equation above, the answer is 33.

Thanks! Ale
