If P is divisible by 2, is Q + 5 an integer?

(1) The median of P and Q is not an integer.

(2) The average (arithmetic mean) of 3P, Q, and Q + 10 is an even integer.

Date - P is even. The question is basically - Does Q is an integer?

So - Statement 1 - INSU. Lets say P=2,Q=3 ----> The answer is YES. P=2, Q=2.5 ----> The answer is NO.

statement 2 - SUFF. (3p+q+q+10)/3 = Integer

3p/3 = p ----> Integer.

2Q+10/3 = Integer. we know that 10/3 is not an integer. therefore 2Q is not an integer as well. so 2q=not integer. Q = not integer/2 ----> Q is not an integer. _________________

could there be more discussion on this one? I don't get how you go from knowing 10/3 is not an integer to knowing that 2Q is not an integer either...

If P is divisible by 2, is Q + 5 an integer?

P is divisible by 2 implies that P is an even integer --> P=2*integer, for some integer k.

(1) The median of P and Q is not an integer. The median of P and Q is \frac{P+Q}{2}=\frac{2*integer+Q}{2}=integer+\frac{Q}{2}. So, we are given that integer+\frac{Q}{2} is not an integer. This means that Q/2 is not an integer, thus Q is not an even integer, which means that Q is either an odd integer or not an integer at all. Not sufficient.

(2) The average (arithmetic mean) of 3P, Q, and Q + 10 is an even integer --> \frac{3P+Q+Q + 10}{3}=even --> 3P+2Q+10=3*even=even --> 2Q=even-3P-10=even-even-even=even --> 2Q=even --> Q=\frac{even}{2}=integer. Sufficient.
