Please, help: GMAT Club Tests 24 Q. # 36 [#permalink] New post 29 Apr 2012, 09:35
Sorry for the re-opening of the forum discussion on the Gmatclub tetsts 24 Q #36 which has been already discussed under the following link:
gmat-math-test-number-properties-3-qn-85845.html

But I want to clarify one point which was not clarified by the discussion run on the link referred above ( at least it is not clear to me)

The problem is:

How many divisors does positive integer N have?
1) The difference between the largest and the smallest divisor of N is 21
2) N+1 has 2 divisors


Here is a point which is not clear to me: whether negative integers can, from the official GMAT tests' point, be considered divisors of a positive integer? Regarding of the problem given here, whether -20 can be taken as a divisor of N? If "yes", then the condition (1) must also not be sufficient. Insofar as I know the problem does not specify that a divisor of N must be a positive integer. Taking this into account one may on the basis of the problem assume that except zero any integer, regardless -ve or +ve one, can be a divisor of N provided the result must be a whole number.

Thanks for your help and + 1 kudos for any clarification. :!:

ALL GMAT divisibility questions are limited to positive integers only. For example, every GMAT divisibility question will tell you in advance that any unknowns represent positive integers.
