What is the value of x + y?

(1) When x is multiplied by 6, the result is between 40 and 50, and when y is multiplied by 4 the result is between 20 and 30.

(2) x and y are distinct integers.

1) x = \(\frac{41}{6}\) or 7...

y = \(\frac{21}{4}\) or 6...

Insufficient.

2) Insufficient. We don't know the values of x and y.

1+2)

Here is why this question is poorly worded. It's not clear if the numbers are between 40 and 50, inclusive, or exclusive.

If it's inclusive then.

x = 7 or 8

y = 5,6 or 7

x + y = 13 or 14.

Insufficient. Answer is E.

If it's excluding 40, and 50, and 20, and 30 then,

x = 7 or 8

y = 6 or 7

x + y = 14

Sufficient. Answer is C.

Can you please check this question? Unless I'm missing something.
