Do j and k yield the same remainder when divided by 24?
(1) When j and k are divided by 8 , they yield the same remainder.
(2) If jÂ´=j/4.5 and kÂ´=k/4.5, jÂ´-kÂ´is an even integer.
St1: j = (A = Multiple of 8) + x and k = (B = Multiple of 8) + x: May be true or false. A or B may be multiple of 24 or not. : INSUFF
St2: This means (j-k)/4.5 is an even integer i.e (j-k) is [4.5 * (Even Integer)] i.e either j = odd multiple of 4.5 and k = odd multiple of 4.5 OR j = even multiple of 4.5 and k = even multiple of 4.5.: INSUFF
Combined: We can say that j and K must be multiple of 72. So will yield same remainder
