NICE RULE: (The greatest common divisor of x and y)(The least common multiple of x and y) = xy
So, for this question, we get: (10)(20) = xy
Evaluate: 200 = xy

Alternatively, you might try to come up with values for x and y that satisfy the given information (GCD = 10 AND LCM = 20)
After some fiddling, we might find out that, if x = 10 and y = 20, their GCD is 10 and their LCM = 20)
So, xy = (10)(20) = 200

Answer: E

Cheers,
Brent

JUST 3 Step Solution



\(xy = GCF (x,y) * LCM (x,y)\)

\(xy = 10 * 20\)

So, \(xy = 200\)

Thus, answer will be (E) 200
