Question: does \(n = 2^2*5^1*k?\)

Statement 1:
\(n^3 = 60m\)
\(n^3 = 2^2*5^1*3^1*m\)
since n is a positive integer, \(n = 2^1*5^1*3^1*q\) , so n is for sure a multiple of 30.
We don't know whether q is an even number, so insufficient.

Statement 2:
\(\sqrt{n} = 10p\)
\(n = 100p^2\) , so n is divisible by 20 regardless of the value of p --> sufficient

Statement 1 :
\(n^3=1000\)
n=10
Or
\(n^3=4000 , n=20\)
Not sufficient
Statement 2 :
\(\sqrt{n}=10k\)
\(n=100k^2\)
Sufficient

Solution



Given:
    • The number n is a positive integer

To find:
    • Whether n is a multiple of 20 or not

Approach and Working:
If we express 20 in terms of its prime factors, we get 20 = 2^2 x 5^1
    • Therefore, if n is a multiple of 20, then n must have 2^2 and 5 as its factors.

Analysing Statement 1
As per the information given in statement 1, n^3 is a multiple of 60.
    • Or, n^3 = 2^2 x 3 x 5 x k, where k is a positive integer
    • From this, we can say that k must have at least 2, 3^2 and 5^2.
    • However, we cannot say whether n is a multiple of 20 or not.

Hence, statement 1 is not sufficient to answer the question.

Analysing Statement 2
As per the information given in statement 2, 10 is a factor of square root of n.
    • Therefore, we can say that 100 should be a factor of n.
    • As 100 is a multiple of 20, we can say that n is also a multiple of 20.

Hence, statement 2 is sufficient to answer the question.

Hence, the correct answer is option B.

Answer: B
