If J is divisible by 12 and 10, is j divisible by 24?

E. could be or could not be. if j = 60, then no. if j = 120 or its multiple, yes.

let's break it down

j is divisible by 12: prime factors are 2,2,3 j is divisible by 10: prime factors are 2,5 therefore, the factors of j are: 2,2,2,3,5 is J divisible by 24? factors of 24: 2,2,2,3

therefore 24 is a prime factor of j

the prime factors match up. i see it from your approach and my approach. pls advise. thanks

you do not know the red part. you can only say that factors of j are: 2, 2, 3, and 5 not 2, 2, 2, 3, and 5.

if we know 2, 2, 2, 3, and 5 were factors of j, most of gmatters' life would be much easier and most them join Goldman Sacs, Blackstone Group, and Citigroup private equity.

When you are trying to get the factors of J , you need to include all the factors in the bigger number (which is 12 and hence 2 2 and 3) and the only the ones in the smaller one which are not already accommodated in the bigger number. So that leaves only 5 with us. So the factors of J at the minimum would be 2 2 3 5.
