# The Value Mystery

**Algebra**Level 2

Use the context to solve the mystery.

If...

\(x\) is smaller than \(y\)

\(y\) is bigger than \(z\)

\(z\) is a value without decimals, and is bigger than \(a\)

\(a\) is smaller than \(z\) and \(y\), but is bigger than \(80\)% less than the sum of the half of \(b\) and twice of \(z\)

\(b\) is \(25\)

\(z\) is \(56\)% of b

\(y\) is \(90\)% more than z

\(x\) is \(3\)% less than y

If the sum of \(x\), \(y\), \(z\), \(b\), and \(a\) is \(101.75\), then what is the value of \(a\) and what is the correct order of variables from highest to lowest?

**Note:** Only round off to 2 decimal places.

Choices:

A.) \(10, x-b-y-z-a\)

B.) \(26.6, y-x-b-z-a\)

C.) \(25.8, a-z-x-b-y\)

D.) \(10.35, y-x-b-z-a\)

E.) \(10.45, y-b-x-a-z\)
