Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Given p and t are the only prime factors of m ==> m = \((p^x) (t^y)\) where x and y are the exponents of p and t and they should ateast be 1 making pt the factor of m. We need to find whether \((p^2)*t\) is a facotor of m
From clue 1, m has more than 9 positive factors(I am assuming factors since "more than 9 numbers" does not make any sense). We also know that p and t are the only prime factors. So The number of factors will be (x+1)(y+1) > 9. We know that x and y are atleast 1 making pt to be the factor of m. But this does not provide any information on what are the values of x and y are. Hence insufficient.
From Clue 2, m is a multiple of \(p^3\). From the question stem, it is clear that t is also one of the prime factors. So \(p^3\) t is a factor of m which means \((p^2)t\) is also a factor of m. Sufficient.
