If x and y are positive integers, what is the least common multiple of x and y?

(1) y = 2x
(2) x = 3 × 2^2 × 5

1) We don't know what x is. LCM of x and 2x....NS
2) We have a number for x, but no idea what y is. NS
3) X is a number we know (60). y is 2 times that number (120). Sufficient.

(1) y = 2x
(2) x = 3 × 2^2 × 5

Value question.

Need to find out LCM (X,Y).

Statement I: y=2x is not sufficient. Because LCM of x and y(2x)depends on x. If x is 3 and y is 6 LCM is 6. However if x is 2 and y is 4, then LCM is 4.

Statement II - We have a value of x no info of y.

Statement I and II - We have values of x and y. Hence sufficient.

Answer C.

Hi Brunel,

It is given in this question that x and y are positive integer, So will if be wrong to report answer in terms of x or y? if yes then could you please explain why it is wrong.
