$$x < - 10 ∨ x > 10$$.

Statement 1: $$|x||y|= 16$$. Since $$|x|>10$$, it could be $$x = -16$$ or $$x = 16$$. We can't know precisely what it is based on the given information. Remember that $$y$$ is in modulus.

Statement 2: $$xy = 16$$. If $$x = 16$$, $$x = 1$$; otherwise, if $$x = -16$$, then $$x = -1$$. $$\frac{x}{y}$$ will remain the same, since $$\frac{+}{+}$$ or $$\frac{-}{-}$$ is positive in either case.
