Q6:
For all integers x and y, the operation ? is defined by x?y = (x+2)^2 + (y+3)^2. What is the
value of integer t?

(1) t ? 2 = 74
(2) 2 ? t = 80

A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.
B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.
C. BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is
sufficient.
D. EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

EDIT : its (x+2)^2 + (y+3)^2

answer is D
statement 1: t ? 2=(t+2)2+(2+3)2=74
statement 2: same way to solve as for statement 1

what is the OA

is the question (x+2)^2 + (y+3)^2

[quote="pawan203"]Q6:
For all integers x and y, the operation ? is defined by x?y = (x+2)^2 + (y+3)^2. What is the
value of integer t?

(1) t ? 2 = 74
(2) 2 ? t = 80

t?2 = (t+2)^2 + (2+3)^2 = 74

t+2 = 7 or -t-2 = 7 t = 5 or -9.....insuff



from 2

4^2 + (t+3)^2 = 80

(t+3)^2 = 64 = 8^2
t+3 = 8.....or -t-3 = 8, t = -512 .......insuff

both.......T = 5

value of integer t?

(1) t ? 2 = 74
(2) 2 ? t = 80

Statement I:

(t+2)^2 = 49
t^2+4t-49 = 0
(t+9)(t-5) = 0
t => -9, 5 => Not sufficient

Statement II:
(t+3)^2=64
(t+11)(t-5)=0
t=> -11,5 => Not sufficient

Both statements taken together => t = 5

Hi guys,

IMO: C

1 (t+2)^2+25=74. We have here a second degree eq. therefore, two possible solutions. Not suff.

2 16+(t+3)^2=80 We have here a second degree eq. therefore, two possible solutions. Not suff.

1+2 we have two different eqs. and therefore, just one solution will comply with both

C

OA?

Cheers

Agree C.

It does not say that t is positive. Hence, two possible values from both the statements and only common value that satisfies both statements is 5.

Agree with C

1. t = 5, -9
2. t = -11, 5

Together : t =5
