If x and y are integers, is x/y greater than 1 ?
(1) xy > 1
(2) x – y > 0
ORIGINAL QUESTION READS:If x and y are positive, is x/y greater than 1?
? --> as given that y
is positive we can safely multiply boith parts of inequality by it --> so the question becomes "is x>y
?" OR: is x-y>0
--> product of two numbers is more than one we can't say which one is greater. Not sufficient.
--> as x
is more than y plus
1 then it's obviously more than just y
Or: as x-y>1
is obviously more than zero --> x-y>1>0
Slight correction, even though your answer and your reasoning are correct, is that your reasoning for 2 does not address the question mentioned -- again, it's still correct, but want to make sure it talks about the question. It should be x-y>0
The question posted by monir6000 has typos. Again:
