(1) add 5y to 2x
(2) multiply the sum by 3
(3) subtract x + y from the product

A. 5x + 14y
B. 5x + 16y
C. 5x + 5y
D. 6x + 4y
E. 3x + 12y


If you look at the choices, all differ in coeff of y.. so we can just concentrate on y itself...
multiply 5y by 3 = 15y..
subtract y from it = 15y-y=14y

ONLY a has got 14y
ans A

3(5Y+2X) -X-Y= 14Y+5X

'A' is the answer
