(1) n/36 is an odd integer. (2) n/45 is an even integer. If n is an integer and 100 < n <200, what is the value of n?(1) n/36 is an odd integer > \(\frac{n}{36}=odd\) > \(n=36*odd\) > \(n\) is even multiple of 36 in the range 100200 > there are two such numbers possible: \(n=36*odd=36*3=108\) and \(n=36*odd=36*5=180\). Two different answers, hence not sufficient. (2) n/45 is an even integer > \(\frac{n}{45}=even\) > \(n=45*even\) > \(n\) is even multiple of 45 (basically a multiple of 90) in the range 100200 > there is only one such number possible: \(n=45*even=45*4=180\) (as 45*2<100 and 45*6>200). Sufficient. Answer: B.

If n is an integer and 100 < n <200, what is the value of n? (1) 36n is an odd integer. (2) 45n is an even integer.
A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient. B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient. C. BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient. D. EACH statement ALONE is sufficient. E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.
The answer is OA C, however i think the only even multiple of 45 between 100 and 200 is 180 so shuoldn't it be B?plzz explain

OA is B, not C. Please read carefully and follow: rulesforpostingpleasereadthisbeforeposting133935.html Pay attention to the rule #3: the name of a topic MUST be the first 40 characters (~the first two sentences) of the question.

n/36 is odd. there are only below numbers which are divisible by 36 and between 100 and 200 36*3 = 108 36*5 = 180 so n can be 108 or 180. Hence not sufficient n/45 is even. There is only 1 choice for n which is between 100 and 200 45*4 = 180 for other mulitples of 45 between 100 and 200, n/45 will be odd (3 or 5). Hence B is sufficient.

Sufficient. Answer: B. Why not 90 in statement 2? Cheers! J

Sufficient. Answer: B. Why not 90 in statement 2? Cheers! J Because we are told that 100 < n <200, 90 is not in the range.
