Hi,
I had a couple of Data Sufficiency questions where I know the answer but not sure how to arrive at the answer.

1) Can the positive integer p be expressed as the product of two integers, each of which is greater than 1?
a) 31<p<37
b) p is odd

2) If xy=-6, what is the value of xy(x + y)?
a) x - y = 5
b) xy^2 = 18
