1) x is integer
2) y > 0

First, break this down into the prime factors:
5, 5, 5, 5, 2, 2, 2

1) Since we know that x is an integer, then y, which is an odd integer, can be either 5 or -5. X must be 2. Insufficient

2) This statement doesn't tell us that x must be an integer, so Y could be any odd number. Insufficient

Together, we know that x=2 and y=5.
