C

Lets say xyz is the number
x*y*z = 96

a. xyz is odd
Not Sufficient

b.x = 8
Not Sufficient

Together
8*y*z = 96
y*z = 12
z has to either 1,3,5,7,9

So, 843 is the number

[quote="Jcpenny"]The product of the units digit, the tens digit, and the hundreds digit of the positive integer m is 96. What is the units digit of m?
(1) m is odd.
(2) The hundreds digit of m is 8.

96 = 3*2^4 ie: = 3*4*8 or 6*4*4 or 6*2*8

if m is odd it has to end in 3 and the only possible combination is (3*4*8)..........suff

2

obviously not suff

A

Answer is A. m is odd meaning the units digit will be odd.

And after factoring 96 there is only 3 which is an odd number. Hence A is the answer.

Knowing the hundreds digit gives no clue about the units digit or ay relation.

cool down , we all started from somwhere close to where u r right now.

236 * 2 is hundredth digit, 3 is tenth digit , 6 is the units digit

ie: the question is asking the following

the product of 3 intigers < 10 is 96

u need to faactorise 96 into 3 intigers less than 10.

...and so forth
