Three grades of milk are 1 percent, 2 percent, and 3 percent fat by volume. If x gallons of the 1 percent grade, y gallons of the 2 percent grade, and z gallons of the 3 percent grade are mixed to give x + y + z gallons of 1.5 percent grade, what is x in terms of y and z?

(A) $$y + 3z$$

(B) $$\frac{y + z}{4}$$

(C) $$2y + 3z$$

(D) $$3y + z$$

(E) $$3y + 4.5z$$
