1). A=E
2). A=C

AB*
BA=
(AB) ( A^2+B^2) (AB) = CDE

THE ONLY USEFULL INFORMATION IS THE UNITS DIGIT OF THE PRODUCT IE: E = (AB)
AND C COULD = (AB) AND THUS C =E =A OR C = (AB) + ANY REMAINDER FROM ( A^2+B^2)

FROM ONE


AB=E,A=E THUS B = 1 and no information can be deducted about A

FROM TWO

A = C NOT SUFF

TOGETHER STILL NOT SUFF

MY ANSWER IS E

Is it C?

from both 1) and 2) we get:

CB * BC = CDC

the only numbers I can think of fullfilling this condition are 11x11=121

OA is E

Both together still means that AB could still equal 11 or 21
