# Pairing high

Let $$x$$ and $$y$$ be positive integers less than 10. There are 81 ordered pairs $$(x, y)$$, from $$(1, 1)$$ to $$(9, 9)$$. Since they are ordered pairs, $$(1, 3)$$ is considered different from $$(3, 1)$$.

How many of these 81 ordered pairs have the property that $$x \times y$$ is at least 50?
