Can someone explain?

An integer greater than 1 that is not prime is called composite. If the two digit integer n is greater than 20, is n composite?

1) The tens digit of n is a factor of the units digit of n.

2) The tens digit of n is 2

1) The tens digit of n is a factor of the units digit of n. In other words, the units digit is a nonzero multiple of the tens digit.

2) The tens digit of n is 2


(1) Let 10>m>1 be the tens digit of n, then the units digit of n is km for some positive integer k<10

Thus n=10m+km=(10+k)m. Clearly n is composite (i.e non-prime) SUFF

(2) n could be 23 (prime) or 24 (composite) among other possibilities N SUFF


I get A

We could also mentally check (1) by examining the possilbities:

22 24 ..28 all composite

33 36 39

44 48

55 66 77 88 99

1) Bottomline: unit digit can factorize. Hence the number is NOT prime. BINGO.

2) That can give both. So wont work.

A is the answer.
