If the system of equations 2x + 5y + 3z = 4, 4x + 3y = -1 and 2y + 5z = 19, where x, y and z are real numbers, has a unique solution, then find the value of (x + y + z)

OA is 4.

Please explain the approach

2x + 5y + 3z = 4

4x + 5y + 5z = 18

2x + 2z =14

x+z= 7

substituting it back , we get y= -3   -> x+y+z = 4

Did anyone else feel like this was an issue or is it only me?. In the new format , we have to 'save and next' for every question or the option wont be saved. So basically if I'm working backwards, Ill press 'Previous' to got to backwards and the option selected wont be saved. It may seem a bit ridiculous to many but I for one felt uncomfortable

looking at this thread and all the other threads related to mocks, I must confess that I am a wee bit disappointed by the scope of discussion. people just post their scores, good or bad and that's the end of it. we already have percentiles which gives us a fair idea of our relative importance and that makes the discussion here completely irrelevant. I really hope to see that those weirdos who consistently maul the mocks share more insight into their strategy. CAT is a game of knowledge and equally about the psyche. those who didn't fare that well can share what they think went wrong and let others add to it. pagalguy is an amazing platform that enables mutual learning if used in the right way. let's start more directioned discussions.

A notable weakness of the Indian bureaucracy is its failure to familiarize itself with modern management techniques, acquire new skills and tone up in professional efficiency. An equally unwelcome feature of the higher civil service is the lack of cost-consciousness. Rare, indeed, is the senior officer who is aware of the crucial significance of the compound rates of interest and realizes that money today and money two years hence are very different things.  The typical bureaucrat's lack of cost consciousness is partly responsible for his well-known tendency to avoid decision making.  A large number of top civil servants rue the day they are obliged to take a decision.  When it becomes no longer possible to postpone a decision, ______________________
