If one Bitcoin and 100,000 Dogecoin are worth $480, and two Bitcoin and 150,000 Dogecoin are worth $948, would you rather have one Bitcoin or 100,000 Dogecoin?

Let \(\text{Max}(x, y)\) and \(\text{Min}(x, y)\) be defined as follows for real numbers \(x\) and \(y:\) \[ \text{Max}(x, y)=\begin{cases} x \quad (x\ge y) \\ y \quad (x<y), \\ \end{cases}\\ \text{Min}(x, y)=\begin{cases} x \quad (x< y) \\ y \quad (x\ge y). \end{cases} \]

If the following holds for distinct numbers \(x\) and \(y,\) what is \(3xy:\) \[\text{Max}(x, y)=5x-2y+79, \quad \text{Min}(x, y)=4x+3y-47?\]
