Well it depends how far away your are sialing from the 800 boat. For me if I am sailing away from 800 boat, but close enough to 700, I'll take that boat! _________________

First I solved incorrectly and came up with answer E.. (1 is not prime..did not remember that point)

But second mistake I made, which I alwasy do is to assume x and y are integer.... if you dont assume that than lets say

3x/y = 2 => x/y = 3/2 we can have x =1 and y =2/3 and x = 6 and y = 4 or x=3 and y=2 which all will result in Prime integer...

and this will result NONE as answer!

it's always easy to solve problem once you know the answer !

Hmm. I get it now. I just assumed x and y are integers _________________
