Question #13133

when x is subtracted from 2y, the difference is equal to the average of x and y What is the value of x/y?

Expert's answer

We can construct the following equation:

2y-x=(x+y)/2

<=> 4y-2x=x+y

<=> 3y=3x

<=> y=x

Therefore x/y=1

2y-x=(x+y)/2

<=> 4y-2x=x+y

<=> 3y=3x

<=> y=x

Therefore x/y=1
