Statement One Alone:

x^3 = 8

Since x^3 = 8, x = 2, then x is an integer.

Statement one alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Statement Two Alone:

x = √4

Since x = √4, x = 2, then x is an integer. (Recall that the square root symbol means to take the principal square root of a number, which is only the positive square root.)

Statement two alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Answer: D

Hi All,

We're asked if X is an INTEGER. This is a YES/NO question. This question is built around some standard math rules and Number Properties.

(1) X^3 = 8

With Fact 1, we're cubing the value of X and ending with a POSITIVE value - thus, X MUST be positive. Here, the value of X = +2 and the answer to the question is YES.
Fact 1 is SUFFICIENT

(2) X =√4

With Fact 1, we have a number that's square-rooted for the value of X. The square root of a number has just ONE solution: a POSITIVE one. Here, we're dealing with the positive square-root of 4, so the value of X = +2 and the answer to the question is YES.
Fact 2 is SUFFICIENT

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
