If the question is what is the value of XY ? -- then answer C
XY = LCM * GCM

If the question is what are the values of X and Y? then answer E

yup having given the question to find xy the answer would be C as x y = lcm x gcd

if its find x and y then the answer would be E.

Sorry, made a typing error.. should be

X and Y are positive integers, what is the value of XY?

1) the greatest common factor of X and Y is 10
2) the least common multiple of X and Y is 180

and the OA is C

thanks

KUDOS
x.y = Greatest Common Factor (x,y) . Least common multiple (x,y)
This is a formula (for example/proof, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Least_common_multiple)

So you need both statements and thus answer is C.

IMO c

The formula is :

Product of two numbers = HCF * LCM
