If p and q are non-zero integers such that |p| + |q| = 18. What is the [#permalink]
|p| + |q| = 18, pq = ?

(1) |p| - |q| = 6
p = 12, q = 6 ---> pq = 72
p = -12, q = -6 --> pq = 72
p = -12, q = 6 --> pq = -72

Insufficient.

(2) p = -2q
p = 12, q = -6 -- > pq = -72
p = -12, q = 6 --> pq = -72

Sufficient.
