Hello from the GMAT Club BumpBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

I didn't set up this equation correctly. How is the algebra reasoning for this question diff than Q 29? When do we know that we need to set up 2 diff equations representing 2 diff variables?

Thanks!
