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.

If this is true then n is NOT a prime number. This is true because if the tens digit is a factor of the units digit, the whole number will be divisible by that number because the tens digit is obviously a factor of itself! Try it out:

2X = 22, 24, 26, 28
3X = 33, 36, 39
4X = 44, 48
5X = 55
6X = 66
7X = 77
8X = 88
9X = 99

For each of these numbers the tens digit evenly goes into itself and is then a factor of the units. Impossible to have a prime number under these rules. SUFFICIENT

2. Statement 2 tells us nothing on its own. n could be prime (23) or composite (24)

Since its only a two digit integer. It must be a composite number.

A.

Stat 1:
If the units digit is not 1 (which it isn't since n>20) and the units digit is divisible by the ten's digit, then n is not prime. Suff.

Stat 2:
22 not prime
29 prime.
Insuff.

The ones in red won't satisfy the statement but the rest of the examples are spot on..

The ones in red do satisfy the statement. eschn3am is correct. EX: 2 is a factor of 6 and 8, 3 is a factor of 9
