640 (Q48, V29) Shocked!!

I still reeling from my GMAT experience. Its been two days and I am unable to get over the shock.

Simplifying the exponents you get...

2^[(x+y)^2 - (x-y)^2]

The exponent part can be ssimplified as follows:

[(x+y)+(x-y)].[(x+y)-(x-y)]

2x.2y = 4xy = 4 (B)

IMO the answer is B.

LCM will have all the unique prime factors of both numbers n & t, which will include the greatest prime factor.

Look at it this way...

Lets say, x^4 = y

sqrt(y) = 9

So, y = 81 = x^4

So x can be +3 or -3
