Does x=100x=100?


(1) y=x/100∗x/100∗y - Not sufficient. Because , y may or may not be equal to 0. If y not equal to 0, statement is sufficient . But if y= 0, its not sufficient

(2) x>0- Not sufficient. x maybe any value greater than 0

If we combine both the equations , we still don't know anything about y. C is not sufficient.
Therefore, right answer is E

Does \(x = 100\)?


(1) \(y=\frac{x}{100}*\frac{x}{100}*y\)

(2) \(x > 0\)


Are You Up For the Challenge: 700 Level Questions


Explanation:

Statement1, As we don't know anything about y. it can be any value. Negative, zero or positive.
So Not sufficient.

Statement X> 0, which is also not sufficient.

Combined 1 & 2, Still don't know anything about y Therefore not sufficient.

:please Please provide kudos, if you find my explanation good enough :please

Why cant we go with plain old technique of cancelling the y to get X^2=10000 i.e X=100 or X= - 100 ------1

and in second equation X>0 when we combine 1+2 we get X= 100 as X>0 and X= 100 or -100

Thus C
