how do you score a duke's worth with the duchy? Is it 3 victory points for the duchy and one point for the duke, thus 4 points for each pair or one duke is worth the number of duchies you possess, thus if you have 3 duchies and four dukes each duke would be worth 3 victory points.Then your total would be 12 for the dukes and 9 for the duchies for a total of 21?

The second thing you said is right.

Each Duchy = 3 VPs
Each Duke = x VPs, where x is the number of Duchies you have.

The strategy to maximize the number of points you have after each buy is:

1. Buy duchies up to three
2. Buy a duchy or a duke
3. Buy whatever you didn't buy in step 2
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3

Realistically, you'll deviate from this from time to time if you're playing optimally. The point is to have the most points at the end of the game, not the end of each turn. I won't spoil the rest for you...

Yeah, generally you'll have competition from other players for Duchies but not for Dukes. So you should usually try to get the Duchies first, while mixing in Dukes in case the game ends unexpectedly.

Alternatively, you can consider each Duke as adding 1 to the value of each of your Duchies. For some it's easier to count up the points that way.

(x * 3) + (y * x) = x * (3 + y)
It gives the same result.
