Looking at the eq :-

xy+6x=yx+y^2

X(Y+6) =Y(X+Y)

When Y is even = 0,2,4,8,6 is possible

When Y=0 => X(0+6)=0(X+0) 0. Not Possible
When Y=2 => X(2+6) =2(X+2) = 8X-2X=4, Not an option. Non Integer Output
When Y=4=> X(4+6)=4(X+4) = 10X=4X+16 .. Not an option. Non Integer Output
When Y=6=> x(6+6)=6(X+6)= 12x=6x+36, x=6,y=6 x+y = 6+6 =12 = > Option C
When Y=8=> X14=8(X+8) Not an option. Non Integer Output

Press kudos

xy+6x=yx+y^2➡
10x+y+6x=10y+x+y^2➡
(y^2)/3+3y=5x
if y is even integer, only possible value of y=6
if y=6, then x=6 also

Well the equation is xy + 6x = xy + y^2

6x = y^2

Now check for y=2 x is not a digit
For y=4 x is not a digit
For y=6 x is 6
For y=8 x is not a digit
Hence x+y will be 12
C
