Does nm =40?

(1) 10/n = m/4
(2) 5n = 20 and 8m = 80

a) 10/n = m/4
if we consider different signs of n & m
nm=40 or nm=-40
NS

b) 5n=20 => n=4
8m = 80 =>m=10
=> nm=40 ---Sufficient

Guys do we need to consider that a) is providing ratio so we don't need to consider -ve signs.

(1) \(\frac{10}{n} = \frac{m}{4}\)
(2) 5n = 20 and 8m = 80


1. Cross multiplying, we get mn = 40
2. Shows that n =4 and m = 10. mn = 40

(1) \(\frac{10}{n} = \frac{m}{4}\)--> cross multiply \(40=mn\). Sufficient. So, as you can see we have only one value for \(mn\)

(2) 5n = 20 and 8m = 80 --> \(n=4\) and \(m=10\) --> \(mn=40\). Sufficient.

Answer: D.
