sandy could you define this approach? how can we be sure that substitution method is to be applied for this question and not solving it through algebraic method?


Algebraic method takes time. And time is something you will not have on the GRE. So substitution is the best option in this case.

Put value 6 and 12 for \(a\) and \(b\); and 8 and 16 for \(x\) and \(y\). See which options hold.

Then put value 30 and 36 for \(a\) and \(b\); and 40 and 48 for \(x\) and \(y\). To validate your answer.

Will it be correct if we just do this way?

The average of a and b = (a+b)/2

The average of x and y = (x+y)/2

The ratio of the first to the second will be (a+b)/(x+y).
