Is x+z=2y??

(1) y is 20% more than z and 25% less than x.
Since it gives us a ratio between 3, should be sufficient..
Let z=100, y=120% of 100=120
Also y=75% of X.....120=75% of X
X=120*4/3=160
So 100,120,160
Y is not the average
Sufficient

(2) x = 32.
Nothing about others
Insufficient

Hi Chetan2u
I did not understand this part "x+z=2y??"
should not it be, y= x+y+z/3?
