Dear freeMATHhelp users,

I need help with an Algebra question which I am not so sure how to initiate,

The image above describes the introduction to the question, later onwards there are 4 choices displayed, one of those equals to the price of the houses Linda purchased at the start.

I want to know how do I define a house in 'Old Town' and a house in 'New Town'.

Do I describe 'Old Town' as X and 'New Town' as X^2 or as Y?

I am not so sharp in mathematics, especially when it comes to word problems, so I would be very grateful to anyone who could elaborate on how to solve questions of this sort.

Thank you in advance,

Michael
