(1) lm = 10

(2) mn = 10

(1) lm = 10

here l & m can take any values

l = 1 ; m = 10
l = 2 ; m = 5
l = 4 ; m = 2.5
..........

(2) mn = 10

Same here -

n = 1 ; m = 10
n = 2 ; m = 5
n = 4 ; m = 2.5
..........

Combine (1) and (2)

lm = mn

l = n

So, THe 2 statements together are not sufficient to solve this question, IMHO (E)....

(1) lm = 10

(2) mn = 10

St1: lm = 10
l = sqrt(10) and n = sqrt(10) --> l = m
l = 10 and m = 1 --> l ≠ m
Not Sufficient

St2: mn = 10 --> Clearly Insufficient as we have no info about l

Combining St1 and St2: l = sqrt(10); m = sqrt(10) and n = sqrt(10) --> l = m
l = 10; m = 1 and n = 10 --> l ≠ m
Not Sufficient

But wouldn't it be A since you can prove that l does not equal m which satisfies the question?

Bro, That's the first part of the story...

The path of solving any DS problem is as follows -

So, we have to go all the way till (E) for this particular problem..

Hope this helps !!

(1) l*m=10^1/2*10^1/2 NO, they are equal
l*m=2*5 YES, they are not equal
Insufficient
Insufficient
(1)+(2)
example from (1) statement applies to both statements as well and shows that it is still insufficient
