B.

Stat 1 tells us that x is a multiple of 18.

xy/105 = (18 * y)/105; since 105 is not a multiple of 18, answer depends on the value of y as well; insuff.

Stat 2 tells us that y is a multiple of 350.

xy/105 = (x * 350)/105 = (10 * x)/3; since x is a multiple of 6, it has to be divisible by 3. Therefore the whole expression is an integer. Suff.

I guess it is D. yes or no questions are far too tricky. there are so many possibilities. even my posts made me doubt my answer.

x is multiple of 6 ---> 6, 12, 18, 24, 36...90...
y is multiple of 14---> 14, 28, ...70...14*25....14*75

so we need to find if x*y is multiple of 105=3*5*7

1. x is multiple of 9 so it can be 90 and is divisible by 6
then 90=2*3*3*5
so 90*14/105=(2*3*3*5)(2*7)/(3*5*7)
suff.

2. y is divisible by 25 and we know that it is also divisible by 14 so
14*75/105=(2*7)(3*5*5)/(3*5*7)
so suff.

am i nuts
