If p players play all of the games, how many players play only one game? (1) The number of players who play soccer and golf but not tennis is half the number of players who play any other combination of two sports (2) p = 3 (5p - x - y) + (10p - x - z) + (7p - y - z) + x + y + z + p = 60 23p - x - y - z = 60 We have to find (5p - x - y) + (10p - x - z) + (7p - y - z). (1) y = (1/2) * (x + z); NOT sufficient. (2) p = 3 implies 23(3) - x - y - z = 60 or x + y + z = 9 So, we can find the value of (5p - x - y) + (10p - x - z) + (7p - y - z); SUFFICIENT. The correct answer is B. _________________ Anurag Mairal, Ph.D., MBA GMAT Expert, Admissions and Career Guidance Gurome, Inc. 1-800-566-4043 (USA) Join Our Facebook Groups GMAT with Gurome https://www.facebook.com/groups/272466352793633/ Admissions with Gurome https://www.facebook.com/groups/461459690536574/ Career Advising with Gurome https://www.facebook.com/groups/360435787349781/ Legendary Member Joined 03 Nov 2011 Posted: 1665 messages Followed by: 70 members Upvotes: 165 Target GMAT Score: 750 Anurag@Gurome wrote: (5p - x - y) + (10p - x - z) + (7p - y - z) + x + y + z + p = 60 23p - x - y - z = 60 We have to find (5p - x - y) + (10p - x - z) + (7p - y - z).
