The integers m and p are such that 2<m<p and m is not a factor of p. If r is the remainder when p is divided by m, is r>1?

1) The greatest common factor of m and p is 2.

2) The least common multiple of m and p is 30.

Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.
Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.
BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.
EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.
Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT SUFFICIENT

1) The greatest common factor of m and p is 2.

2) The least common multiple of m and p is 30.



m<p.. and we know that m/p <> 0.. is r>1

in the first case.. the greatest common factor is 2.. so.. for example 4 and 6.. GCF = 2.. r> 1.. holds true for all the numbers..

second case.. the least multiple of m and p is 30..
m =5 p =6.. m 3 p=10.. r =1 in all cases..

so D

I guess I am confused by the question stem. Before getting either statement 1 or statement 2, you are told that both m and p are greater than 2. You also know that m is not a factor of p.

Given these two things...how is it EVER possible to have a remainder less than 1?

IMO it should be A.

i. We know the two nos. are even, both nos. > 2 & one is not a factor of the other. This means that any multiple of the smaller number will be atleast 2 less than the greater no. - Sufficient

ii. consider two cases (m=5,p=6) and (m=6,p=10) both have LCM=30 but will have remainder 1 & 4 respectively - insuff

I think the question is really asking if you can be sure:
that the remainder is > 1 as opposed to remainder=1.
