    kal se maun brat kar lena
    pura solution samjha do

  34. ok guys answer is d =4

    {4,32 ; 8,28 ; 16, 20 ; 32 ,4}
    (question is asking about pair of such number)
    in answer key its given c which i think is wrong

  35. You r wrong bro…..

    As these numbers have 4 as HCF, It means that they are multiples of 4. so say 4x and 4y are the numbers
    4 (x + y) = 36
    (x+y)= (36/4)
    (x + y) = 9
    Hence, the possible pairs of x and y are (1,8) (3,6) (4,5) and (2,7) since they all give 9.
    (3,6) is out as it is not co-prime and that will change the HCF. only (1,8) , (4,5) and (2,7) i.e. three pairs are possible.

  36. put x=1 in x + 1/x =2
    it satisfy it means 1 is solution now put this in given eq you will get sln

  37. if for two real constant a and b , the expression
