Is √(56x) an integer?

$$\sqrt{56x}=2\sqrt{14x}$$.

(1) x is a multiple of 14. If x=14, then the answer is YES but if x=14*3, then the answer is NO. Not sufficient.

(2) 28 is not a factor of x. Consider the same examples. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Consider the same examples. Not sufficient.

OK here's the deal

We need to know if X has at least 2 and a 7^2 for 56x to be a perfect square

Statement 1

Is a multiple of 2*7, OK, thanks for the info but we are still missing one 7

Statement 2

Not a factor of 2^2*7. Well OK, doesn't have a square power of 2 but could as well have a square power of 7. I need more info

Statement 1 and 2 together

Well we are still missing that 7!!

Cheers!
If it helps Kudos me ok?

Prompt analysis
56x is an integer.

Superset
The answer will be either yes or no

Translation
In order to find the value of √(56x), we need
1# exact value of x
2# some property of x to assure the answer

Statement analysis
St 1: 56x = 8*7 x. X can be 14 or 28 for example and we will get different results. INSUFFICIENT
St 2: x can be 14 and 15. Different results. INSUFFICIENT.

St 1 & St 2: we can say that x is odd multiple of 14. We take two numbers. 42 and 126. We get different results. INSUFFICIENT

Option E
