I am having a hard time understanding the wording of this Q, can anyone please explain?

For any positive integer x, the 2-height of x is defined to be the greatest nonnegative integer n such that 2^n is a factor of x. If k and m are positive integers, is the 2-height of k greater than the 2-height of m?

1) k>m

2) k/m is an even integer

1) k>m

2) k/m is an even integer

1: k = 48 and m = 16
2^n for k and m 2^4

if k = 32 and m = 16
2^n for k = 2^5
2^n for m = 2^4
so nsf.

B. if k > m and k/m is an even integer, the 2^n for k must be > 2^n for m because k has more 2's than m.

so 2^n for k > 2^n for m.

//B//
