\(y > 4\)

Quantity A

Quantity B

\(\frac{3y+2}{5}\)

\(y\)

A)The quantity in Column A is greater. B)The quantity in Column B is greater. C)The two quantities are equal. D)The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Practice Questions Question: 6 Page: 113 Difficulty: medium

Multiply both quantities by 5 to get: Quantity A: \(3y+2\) Quantity B: \(5y\)

Subtract 3y from both quantities to get: Quantity A: \(2\) Quantity B: \(2y\)

Divide both quantities by 2 to get: Quantity A: \(1\) Quantity B: \(y\)

Since we're told that y > 4, we know that Quantity B is greater.

Answer: B

If y = 5, we get: Quantity A: [3(5) + 2]/5 Quantity B: 5

Simplify to get: Quantity A: 3.4 Quantity B: 5

So, Quantity B is greater (not Quantity A).
