In the figure above, the sum of the three numbers in the horizontal row equals the product of the three numbers in the vertical column . What is the value of xy ?

(A) 6
(B) 15
(C) 35
(D) 75
(E) 90

Sol: Given that sum of Horizontal numbers (37+38+15=90)= Product of 15*x*y
So the product of xy= 90/15 =6

This question can also be done just by looking at unit digits. Unit Digit of horizontal is 0 (7+5+8). Vertical is 15xy. So, the unit digit of xy when multiplied with 5 should give a 0. Only possible option is 6. Rest all options give a 5 as unit digit.
