Is J divisible by 24?

(1) J is divisible by both 12 and 20 --> J is divisible by the least common multiple of 12 and 20, so by 60. Now, if J=60, then the answer is NO but if J=120, then the answer is YES. Not sufficient.

(2) J is divisible by 8. If J=8, then the answer is NO but if J=24, then the answer is YES. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Since from (1) J is divisible by 3 and from (2) J is divisible by 8, then it's divisible by the least common multiple of 3 and 8, so by 24. Sufficient.

Hope it's clear.
