If x≠ 0 and y ≠ 0, is x < 1/y?

I. xy < 1
Two cases..
(I) If y is positive, we can divide the two sides without changing the sign, so \(\frac{xy}{y}<\frac{1}{y}.....x<\frac{1}{y}\)
(II) If y is negative, we can divide the two sides but after changing the sign, so \(\frac{xy}{y}>\frac{1}{y}.....x>\frac{1}{y}\)
Thus insufficient.

II. y = 2
Nothing about x
Insuff

Combined, we know y is positive , therefore \(\frac{xy}{y}<\frac{1}{y}.....x<\frac{1}{y}\)
Sufficient
