Forget conventional ways of solving math questions. In DS, Variable approach is the easiest and quickest way to find the answer without actually solving the problem. Remember equal number of variables and equations ensures a solution.

If j and k are integers and jk = 12, what is the value of k ?

(1) j/6 is an integer

(2) k/2 is an integer.

In the original condition we have 2 variables (j,k) and 1 equation (jk=12) thus we need 1 more equation to match the number of variables and equations. Since there is 1 each in 1) and 2), D is likely the answer. In case of 1), the multiple of j=6 -> 6,-6 --> k=2,-2 therefore the answer is not unique, and the condition is not sufficient In case of 2), the multiple of k=2 -> 2,-2, therefore the answer is not unique, and the condition is not not sufficient Using both 1) & 2) k=2,-2 therefore it is not unique and thus the conditions are not not sufficient. therefore the answer is E

Hello from the GMAT Club BumpBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

This is a data sufficiency question. Options for DS questions are always the same.

The data sufficiency problem consists of a question and two statements, labeled (1) and (2), in which certain data are given. You have to decide whether the data given in the statements are sufficient for answering the question. Using the data given in the statements, plus your knowledge of mathematics and everyday facts (such as the number of days in July or the meaning of the word counterclockwise), you must indicate whether—

A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked. B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked. C. BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked. D. EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked. E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked, and additional data specific to the problem are needed.

The answer is E From First statement we have Two values of j i.e 12 and 6 From second statement we have 4 values of k 2,4,6,12 Taken together we still can not find the value of k Hence E
