Number of positive multiples of 5 less than 60 = 11 5*1=5 5*2=10 5*3=15 5*4=20 5*5=25 5*6=30 5*7=35 5*8=40 5*9=45 5*10=50 5*11=55 Only 5 of the above are a product of a positive multiple of 5 and an even number  10,20,30,40,50 Answer B

let's say 5q is the multiple of 5, 2p the even number hence, the integer will be of the form 10qp, only 10 20 30 40 and 50 are of this form and less than 60.
Answer B

Quote: positive integers less than 60.............product of a positive multiple of 5 and an even number is 5k k = {2,4,6,8 ......} (Since numbers are even ) k = {2m} (Since numbers are even )Hence 5k = 5(2m) Or, 5 k =10mSo, We have to find numbers which are multiples of 10 Hence the numbers are  { 10, 20 , 30 , 40 , 50 } Only 5 numbers.. Hence answer is definitely (B)

I think the answer is D "product of positive multiples of 5 and an even number" 5x2, 5x4, 5x6,5x8, 5x10 10x2, 10x4 15x2 20x2 25x2
10,15,20 and 25 are also positive multiples of 5.

I disagree with those saying the answer is B. In my opinion, answer is D.
Multiple of 5 are: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, ...
In this case, we have the following fulfilling the conditions:
1. 5*2 2. 5*4 3. 5*6 4. 5*8 5. 5*10 6. 10*2 7. 10*4 8. 15*2 9. 20*2 10. 25*2

I guess u will be repeating numbers ... And so u will get 10 ... When u remove the repeats ... U get only 5 now... Hence B...

Hi vp101 and Condon, GMAT questions are always carefully worded, so you have to make sure that you answer the question that is ASKED. We're asked for the number of positive integers that are less than 60 AND even multiples of 5. If you check your lists, you'll see that you included a number of your integers TWICE. GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made, Rich

A. 4 B. 5 C. 9 D. 10 E. 11 We should note that “the product of a positive multiple of 5 and an even number” is the same thing as “an even multiple of 5”. The positive integers less than 60 that are also even multiples of 5 are 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50, so there are 5 integers. Answer: B

A. 4 B. 5 C. 9 D. 10 E. 11 You need to multiply 5 with least positive even integer and see what is the result. We get 10 Next would be 5*4=20. next would be 30,40,50. 60 does not qualify as the question states less than 60. Hence 5.

A. 4 B. 5 C. 9 D. 10 E. 11 Asked: How many positive integers less than 60 are equal to the product of a positive multiple of 5 and an even number? Positive integers less than 60 are equal to the product of a positive multiple of 5 and an even number = {10,20,30,40,50} = 5 numbers IMO B

A. 4 B. 5 C. 9 D. 10 E. 11 The way I arrived at the solution. Since the question says that positive integers < 60 when 5 multiplied by an even number. Thus 5x2 = 10 5x4= 20 5x6 = 30 5x8 = 40 5x10 = 50 5x12 = 60 < filter reached. Thus there are 5 integers less than 60 when 5 is multiplied by an even number.
