Thanks again!


Question: \(x^2yz+xy^2z+xyz^2=xyz(x+y+z)=?\)

(1) \(x+y+z=18\). We know only one of the multiples. Not sufficient.
(2) \(xyz=10\). We know only one of the multiples. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) \(x+y+z=18\) and \(xyz=10\) --> \(xyz(x+y+z)=10*18=180\). Sufficient.

Answer: C.

If xyz was given as equal to zero, than the answer would have been totally different

x^2*y*z + x*y^2*z+x*y*z^2 =?

i.e xyz(x+y+z) =?

1. Not sufficient.

x+y+z = 18. there is no way we can find out the value of xyz from this . as different x,y,z combinations will yield
different xyz.

2. Not sufficient.

xyz = 10

there is no way we can find out the value of x+y+z from this . as different x,y,z combinations will yield
different x+y+z.

1&2 together, its sufficient to find out xyz(x+y+z).

Answer is C.
