Dear All,

I had a question regarding the math section in the GMAT. I guess this would apply to either PS or DS. If the problem states that there are two variables, x and y, but does not explicitly state that they are distinct, can we always assume that x and y can be equal? This has always created some confusion for me as I have progressed in my studes.

Unless given distinct or different they CAN be the same
