If x, y and z are integers greater than 1, what is the value of x + y + z?

(1) xyz = 70
(2) x/yz = 7/10


We know x,y,z > 1

Read St.A --> xyz = 70 = 2*5*7
as x,y and z are greater than 1 we cant have (10,7,1), (70,1,1) or other combinations
Hence x+y+z = 2+5+7 = 14
A is sufficient

St. B --> x/yz = 7/10
now x is 7k, y is 2m and z is 5n
Hence x+y+z will be variable
Hence B is useless.

Only A is sufficient

\(X , Y , Z integers > 1\)

\(x + y + z = ?\)

Statement 1

\(xyz = 70\)

Prime factorizing 70 we get 2, 5 and 7 ( we can not take any value to be 1 because all integers are greater than 1)

so \(x + y + z = 14\)

No matter what value we take for x, y, z , sum will always be 14

Hence statement 1 is Sufficient

Statement 2

\(\frac{x}{yz} = \frac{7}{10}\)

here if \(x = 7\) then y be 2 and z be 5 then \(x + y + z = 14\)

x can also be 14 , then y be 2 and z be 10 then \(x + y + z = 26\)

so clearly statement 2 is not sufficient.

Hence Answer is A

A
1.) Sufficient
xyz = 70 = 7*5*2
so x+y+z = 7+5+2 = 14

2) Insufficient
Can be an multiple of the fraction and thus many different values for x+y+z
