The table above shows the oneway driving distance, in miles, between four cities: P, Q, R, and S. For example, the distance between P and Q is 144 miles. If the round trip between S and Q is 16 miles further than the round trip between S and R, and the round trip between S and R is 24 miles less than the round trip between S and P, what is the value of X? A. 174 B. 182 C. 186 D. 348 E. 364

The table above shows the oneway driving distance, in miles, between four cities: P, Q, R, and S. For example, the distance between P and Q is 144 miles. If the round trip between S and Q is 16 miles further than the round trip between S and R, and the round trip between S and R is 24 miles less than the round trip between S and P, what is the value of X?A. 174 B. 182 C. 186 D. 348 E. 364 The round trip between S and Q = 2x. The round trip between S and R = 2y. The round trip between S and P = 2*186. Given that: 2x=2y+16 2y+24=2*186 > y=174. 2x=2*174+16 > x=182. Answer: B. Hope it's clear.

How much time do you think is ideal to solve such a question. Even though I got it right ,I took 2min50sec to solve it...Honestly I think its a simple question but for some reason the whole process took me some time. Any trick which needs to be applied here ? My approach was to form equations and find the value of 'Y' and then substitute it back in another equation to get value of 'X'

The table above shows the oneway driving distance, in miles, between four cities: P, Q, R, and S. For example, the distance between P and Q is 144 miles. If the round trip between S and Q is 16 miles further than the round trip between S and R, and the round trip between S and R is 24 miles less than the round trip between S and P, what is the value of X? Trip from S  Q = X, Trip from Q  S = X, Round trip of S & Q = X + X = 2X Trip from S  R = Y, Trip from R  S = Y, Round trip of S & R = Y + Y = 2Y 2x = 16+2y 2x2y = 16 xy = 8...... eqn 1 Similarly, Roundtrip of S & P = 2 * 186 = 372 2y = 37224 y=174, sub the value of Y in eqn 1 we get, x = 182
