C it is

GCF(X,Y) * LCM(X,Y) = X*Y

True - 1) has to be GCF of x and y...

And answer has to be C.

If I were taking the test, I would guess C. I know that each is insufficient, but not exactly sure how to break it down far enough to differentiate between C and E.

Anyone?

C. Provided 1) means GCF of x and y is 10

GCF(of two numbers) * LCM(of two numbers) = product of the numbers

Hence both the statements are required.

product (x, y) = lcm (x,y) * gcf (x,y)

Thats a formula to mug
