A none...

say x=33 and y=9

then 3(x/y)=11 which is a prime greater than 2...

x is not a prime, y is not a prime, x is not equal to y...y is not equal to 1

A) None...

qsr - see fresinha12's response.. x and y need not be prime integers (or equal for that matter) for 3x/y to be prime.

Thanks man! By the way what does y<>3 mean - does it mean y is greater than or lesser than 3?
