One part must be a multiple of 2 to get the even number. I worked up the even numbers to get the product you indicate, but the closest I could get was 8*17 = 136.
Do you have a typo?posted by PsyDAG

its a question involving simultaneous equations.
1) xy = 126
2) x+ y = 25
Inserting 2) into 1):
(25x)x = 126
x^2 +25x126 = 0
Use the ABC formula, and you get
x= 18 or x = 7
and that is the answer,
because 18 + 7 is 25 and 18 x 7 =126.posted by Bobby

i think its a typo....
