A.

28

Let the first number = 3x

Second number = 4x

According to the question,

(3x)2 +  (4x)2 = 400

9x2 + 16x2 = 400

25x2 = 400 ∴   Required sum = 3x + 4x = 7x = 7 x 4 = 28

The third proportional of the following numbers (x - y)2,  (x2 - y2)2 is:

• (x + y)3 (x - y)2

• (x + y)4 (x - y)2

• (x + y)2 (x - y)2

• (x + y)2 (x - y)3

B.

(x + y)4 (x - y)2

Let a = (x - y)2 = 1st Proprotion,   b=  (x2 - y2)2 = 2nd Proportion,

Now C = Third proprotion =  110 Views
