Yes
is x=6/y?
1) since y >=3 for any value in this range x<y hence suff
2) y<=4 for y=3 x<y and for y=2 x>y hence insuff

(1) y >=3

given xy=6

(1) Y>=3
min value of y is 3 .so in that case x have to be 2 (x<y)
any value of y>3 x is always have value<y
so suff.
(2)Y<=4
max. value of y=4 in that case X have to be 3/2.YES
if Y=2 then X=3.NO
so insufff...

x/2=3/y......>xy=6, is x,y

1) y >=3. It means that Y is always positive and hence X is too. Put y=3, then x=2. Put y=4, then x=3/2 As Y is going higher X is getting smaller to maintain xy=6. Sufficient

2) y<=4. Put Put y=3, then x=2. Then x<y Yes

Put y=-3, then x=-2 , Then x<y No...............Insufficient

x/2 = 3/y
xy= 6

(1) y >=3

Let's say y is the least possible value i.e 3. then x can be 2. For every value of y>3, x will reduce further and will always be less than y.
Hence y>x. Sufficient

(2) y<=4

y can be 3 then x will be 2, and y>x
but if y = 2, x will be 3, and x>y
Not sufficient

x/2 = 3/y

xy = 6

is x<y?

1. y>=3

If you consider x and y as integers, x can have a max value of 2 to satisfy xy=6.
Even if you consider x and y as fractions, x will never have more than 2. So, x is less than y in any case.
Sufficient.

2. y<=4

If y=3, x=2. x < y
If y=1, x=6. x > y
Insufficient.
