Official Solution:


(1) \(m\) is a multiple of 14. Not sufficient as no info about \(n\).

(2) \(n\) is a divisor of 14. Not sufficient as no info about \(m\).

(1)+(2) As from (2) \(n\) is a divisor of 14 then it must be a divisor of every multiple of 14, therefore it's a divisor of \(m\) too. Sufficient.


Answer: C

Answer: C


I got E for this question. Followed the below approach.
What if we consider m=14 and n=28 => Not an integer
If m=28, n=28 => integer.

What did i do wrong?

(2) says that n is a divisor of 14 but if n = 28, then it's not a divisor of 14, it's a multiple of 14.

Hi Bunuel,
Please confirm if the below is correct...
If it was given : m is not necessarily an integer then the answer would be E ?
My reasoning:
1) m could 14 x integer or
m could be 14 x 2.5

2 ) n = 2 or 7

Then by combining 1 and 2, m/n can still be fraction ( 2.5 in this case) hence E

I'm quite sure that 2.5 x 14 is no valid multiple of 14

I got this question wrong since I didn't think "Divisor" can refer to a "Factor".

From what I knew, a number divided by a divisor, may/may not yield a remainder. Doesn't say anything about the divisor being a factor.

Turns out a divisor and factor are the same :)

Statement 1:
m = 14k, where k is a positive integer. Can't say if m/n is an integer since 14/3 is not an integer and 14/7 is an integer.

Statement 2:
n is a divisor of 14. This means n can be 1, 2, 7 or 14. But the statement alone does not tell us about m/n. m/n could be 5/7 (is not an integer) or 14/7 (is an integer).

Statements 1+2:

m = 14k and n=1,2,7 or 14. For all the 4 values of n, m/n is an integer. Hence this is sufficient to answer weather m/n is an integer.
Hence answer is C
