Official Solution:


Statement (1) by itself is insufficient. S1 does not guarantee that \(\frac{K}{L}\) is an integer. For example, let's examine 3:

\(\frac{K^2}{L^2} = 3 -\) integer

\(\frac{K}{L} = \sqrt{3} -\) not an integer

Statement (2) by itself is sufficient. S2 tells us that \(K=2L\). Replace \(K\) with \(2L\) and solve as follows:
\(\frac{18*2L}{L} = 18*2 = 36\)


Answer: B

Curious to see what other people's first reaction to seeing this is.

My first thought was: for (18k)/L to be an integer, then L must be a factor of either 18, or K, or both. I thought stmt 1 was sufficient to determine that L was a factor of K but I guess this is incorrect.

I'm assuming it is always the case that (x^2)/(y^2) will never be sufficient to determine that y is a factor of x.

Stmt 2 tells us that L is a factor of K (because K=2L) therefore we know the L in the denominator will cancel out one factor of L in the numerator. This leaves a 1 in the denominator as well.

The take-away here is that assuming variables always carry rational numbers is not very becoming of a 700-level tester. Question caught me on that assumption too. That's why I love gmatclub problems; they keep you honest!

When \(\frac{K^2}{L^2}\) will give a square number. Can you give a example how can we get a value such as 3, which is not a square number.

Consider K^2 = 3 and L^2 = 1.

Consider K^2 = 3 and L^2 = 1.


Is it possible to get 3 as the squared value? If yes, how do you determine that?

Yes, if \(K=\sqrt{3}\), then \(K^2=(\sqrt{3})^2=3\).
