The question is still wrong somewhere. If you solve all the individual equations then:

v = 6.25
w = 1000
x = 10
y = 10
z = 100

The only two that are equivalent are x and y.

Exactly. I solved this twice now and I am seeing the same results.

Some thing is wrong with original Q. its easy to misplace a decimal point. Please verify
