SOLUTION

Is the positive integer n a multiple of 24 ?

(1) n is a multiple of 4. Not sufficient.
(2) n is a multiple of 6. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) n is a multiple of both 4 and 6 which means that it's a multiple of least common multiple of 4 and 6, which is 12. So, even taken together statements are not sufficient, since n can be for example 12 as well as 24. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.

Generally if a positive integer n is a multiple of positive integer a and positive integer b, then n is a multiple of LCM(a,b).

A) If n is a positive multiple of 4 it should be of the form 4*x where x is 1, 2, 3,4 etc
therefore, n can be 4, 8 , 24

NOT SUFFICIENT

B) If n is a positive multiple of 6 it should be of the form 6*x where x is 1, 2, 3,4 etc
therefore, n can be 6,12,18,24, etc

NOT SUFFICIENT

Both A&B ) n is multiple of both 4 and 6 i.e. it is of the form 4*6*x = 24*x

SUFFICIENT

Is the positive integer n a multiple of 24 ?

(1) n is a multiple of 4.
(2) n is a multiple of 6.


Sol: Is n= 24I where I is an Integer

St 1: n=4a where "a" is an integer. Now If n=4 then no but n=48 then yes.

A and D are ruled out

St2: If n=6 then no if n=24 then yes.

Combining we get n is muliple of 4 and 6 so n is a mulitple of 12 but need not be a multiple of 24...here's why

If n=12,36,60 then not a mutiple of 24, but
If n= 24,48 then Yes

Ans is E

Option E.
From S1:If n is multiple of 4
n=4 Ans-No
n=24 Ans-Yes
Insuff.

From S2:If n is a multiple of 6
n=6 Ans No
n=24 Ans Yes.
Insuff.

Combining both
n=12 ans-no
n=24 ans-yes
Insuff.

Hi ,

Lets take a example of 12 or 36 ,both are divible by 4 as well as 6 but not by 24, so we cant conclude by both statements
