Error in original question
oops i just realised im doing the question wrong...
It is actually:
can x and y be determined if it is given that there are 65 values which the sum a multiple of x and a multiple of y cannot give
I.e. Nx + My has 65 unattainable values, where N and M are variables. Also x and y both do not equal 2.
I saw it on: Hard math questions, again? - Yahoo! Answers
Its the last part to the last question.
