To find whether m is a multiple of n ?

Statement 1

m + 3n is a multiple of n

=> (m + 3n) = n * C (C is some integer)

=> m = nC - 3n

=> m = n(C - 3n)

m is a multiple of n

Statement 1 is sufficient

Statement 2

2m + n is a multiple of n

=> 2m + n = n * C (C is some integer)

=> 2m = n * C - n

=> 2m = n(C - 1)

=> m = \(\frac{n(C-1)}{2}\)

We don't know the divisibility of either "n" or "C-1" with respect to "2"

Hence we can't say m is a multiple of n

Statement 2 is insufficient

Hence option A

If both m and n are positive integers, is m a multiple of n?

(1) m + 3n is a multiple of n
m+3n is a multiple of n...
3n is a multiple of n, so m has to be a multiple of n otherwise 3n+m will not be a multiple of n
Sufficient

(2) 2m + n is a multiple of n
2m+n is a multiple of n..
Now n is a multiple of n so 2m will be a multiple of n..
but we cannot say if m is a multiple of n...
Say m is 12 and y is 4.....2m or 24 and also m or 12 is multiple of n or 4
But say m is 6 and y is 4.....2m or 12 is a multiple of n or 4, but m or 6 is not a multiple of 4
Insufficient

A

GMAT CLUB TESTS' FRESH QUESTION



If both m and n are positive integers, is m a multiple of n?

(1) m + 3n is a multiple of n
(2) 2m + n is a multiple of n



from 1:

m=2 n =2 , yes and m=3 n = 3 sufficient

from 2:
2m+n is a multiple of n
so m 2 , n = 2 yes, m = 1, 2 in sufficient
