If x and y are integers and x/y is an even integer,what is the value of x?

1. xy=36

2. y is an even integer.

Hey guys this question is from the book

PR 1012 Pg 139 #17 and I was wondering whether the 2nd stmt has a printing error.

Stmt 1:insufficient. x=36,y=1 and x=12,y=3 both satisy the condition.

Stmt 2 is odcourse insuff.

Combined:How can y be even?HELP!

for x/y to be even with y being even you can see that is impossible. So (2) doesn't really do anything because we couldve figured out y has to be odd and even with that X could still be 36 or 12 so that's why it is E. So they couldve put y=even there to confuse people OR it might've been meant to be ODD but in the end it is still E. HTH kudos.
