(1) The sum of x and y is greater than 60.
(2) Each of the variables is greater than 2.


Is xy>60?


(1) The sum of x and y is greater than 60.
x could be 0.5 and y= 60......... x+y = 60.5 and xy= 30.......NO
x= 5 y=60.............x+y=65 and xy = 300.......YES
Insuff

(2) Each of the variables is greater than 2.
If x = 5 and y = 5 ....xy=25.....NO
x=10, y=20...........xy=200......YES
Insuff

Combined
x+y > 60 and BOTH x and y are >2.......
the lowest possible value is\(x = 2.00000001\)and then \(y = 60.00000001-2.00000001 = 58\)...
\(xy = 2*58=116..\)
so xy will always be greater than 60

Is xy > 60?

Statement 1
The sum of x and y is greater than 60
If x = 60 and y = 3, then x + y > 60 and xy > 60 (yes)
If x = 60 and y = 1, then x + y > 60 and xy = 60 (no)
Insufficient

Statement 2
Each of the variables is greater than 2
If x = 60 and y = 3, then xy > 60 (yes)
If x = 2 and y = 3, then xy < 60 (no)
Insufficient

Statement 1 and 2 combined
x > 2, y > 2 and x + y > 60
With these restrictions xy will always be greater than 60. (Irrespective of whether x and y are integers or not)
Hence, sufficient
