B. 2 and 2 because 2x2=4 and 2+2=4 so the product of the two positive numbers isn't greater than the sum of the same two positive numbers, they are equal.

find the counter example to show that the statement is incorrect when a counting number is 3 and the sum is divided by 2 , the quotient will be an even numbe
