1. x is integer , y can be a fraction or an integer => not sufficient

2. y/x is integer 1.2/0.6 or 12/2 both are integers but area is not an integer in both cases.

both together , if x is an integer then y has to be an integer for the result to be an integer.

so both integers => area is integer

both together are sufficient
