If x=1 and z=0, therefore;

1+2y=74

y=36.5 ( it's a rational number, so this can't be our answer)

if x=2 and z=0, then

2+2y=74

y=36 ( ok, it's a natural number. But let's keep going)

if x=3 and z=0

3+2y=74

y=35,5 ( again a rational number)

if x=4 and z=0

4+2y=74

y=35 ( it's a natural number, but 35<36)

Note that for every natural number greater than 1, the value of Y will decrease. Therefore, the maximum value for Y is 36. Plugging the value in x+2y+3z=74, we have 2+2x36+0=74.
