Statement 1: greatest common divisor of M and N is 6. So, M and N are multiple of 6. But, an exact value of N cannot be determined. Insufficient!

Statement 2: LCM of M and N is 36. M can be 9 and N can be 12 or M can be 12 and N can be 18. Multiple possible answer. Insufficient!

Combining 1&2, M and N are multiple of 6 and LCM is 36. So the only possible values on M and N can be 12 and 18 respectively.
Sufficient!

Answer C!

hcf*LCM= a*b
statement1: only HCF is mentioned, multiple values are possible NS
Statement 2: Only LCM is mentioned , multiple values are possible NS

combining HCF*LCM= product of M*N
and we know M<N hence we can determine the values.

PS: please let me know if my approach is correct.

Both together

LCM*HCF = MN ( each of m, n are multiple of 6 --- assume m = 6k , k is +ve integer )

N =36*6/ 6k thus N = 36/k , since N is a multiple of 6 then k can only be (1,2,3,6)

if k is 1 thus N= 36, M = 6, if k = 2 thus N= 18 and M = 12 , IF K=3 then N= 12 , M = 18 , IF K = 6 then N= 6 and M = 36) the only option that satisfy the constraint ( 6<M<N) is when K= 2 and N=18 , M=12

The answer is C
6*36=216=m*n
Both m & n are greater than 6
M<N can be satisfied under
Pairs (12,18),(9,24) and (8,27)
But only 12,18 can give gcf 6

Statement 1 tells us that between M and N, 2 and 3 are the lowest factors. However we do not know exactly who has 2 and who has 3; there can also be other factors between them. Insufficient.

Stamtement 2 tells us that 2^2 and 3^2 are the highest factors between M and N. However we do not know whether thats the only factors common between them or that there are lower factors of 2 and 3 between them than 2^2 and 2^3.

Combining both statements we understand that 2 and 3 are the lowest factors and 2^2 and 3^2 are the highest factors. So one of them must be 12 and the other must be 18. Since 6<M<N, N must be 18.

Answer C!


Hi 14101992,

Unfortunately your answer is incomplete.

According the statement 2, LCM can be 36 as well.
The further constrain is given "by the formula (concept)": LCM*HCF = M*N --> 6*36, which tells that LCM cannot be 36 and so only M=12 and N=18 cen be the answer.

C is correct.

Hope it helps.

Matt

Statement 1 and 2: are clearly NOT SUFFICIENT. Can anyone explain the easiest way how together they are sufficient. I just had a lucky guess 'C' which was correct. Thanks.
