The order of number is not mentioned so m not sure if we can assume z as the last no. And x as first.... so i think it should be C

(1) The product of the digits is 12.

The problem ask for the value of two-digit integer XY which its value is 10x+y
Given these following statements

(1) The product of the digits is 12.
From this statement x*y=12 which there are many possible combinations
ex. x=2 and y=6, x=3 and y=4, and so on ---> Insufficient

(2) The sum of the digits is 8
From this statement x+y=8 which there are many possible combinations
ex. x=1 and y=7, x=2 and y=6, and so on ---> Insufficient

Combined (1) & (2), we have 2 equations to solve for x and y
\(x+y=8\)
\((x+y)^2=8^2\)
\(x^2+2xy+y^2=64\)
\(x^2+2*12+y^2=64\)
\(x^2+y^2=64-24\)
\(x^2+y^2=40\)
From these equations, the possible combinations are x=2 and y=6 or x=6 and y=2
These are still insufficient since the possible values of xy can be both 26 and 62

My answer is "E"

Priyanka8793,
you are correct as we do not know what will be the order but then answer will be E for this very reason and not C

XY..

(1) The product of the digits is 12.
number scan be 2 and 6 so 26 or 62
numbers can be 3 and 4 so 34 or 43
insuff

(2) The sum of the digits is 8
numbers can be 17, 71,26,62 etc
insuff

combined

possibility still can be 26 or 62
insuff

E
