Short Answer▾Two no. on multiplication gives 10, when added gives 7. What is the larger of the two number? (2004)
Explanation
 let՚s take two variables x and y.
 Multiplication of these two variables is 10 i.e.. xy = 10 and addition of two variables is 7 i.e.. x + y = 7.
 Taking the square of
 Substituting the value of xy in the equation, (
 Accordingly, x = 2 or x = 5
 So, the larger number between 5 and 2 is 5.
Question 3

Short Answer▾Distance between a, b is 60 miles, c is 50 miles from both. Find shortest distance between c and the highway connecting a b. (2004)
Explanation
 Here, distance between a and b is 60 miles and c is 50 miles from both.
 As c is at the same distance from a and b both, it will be on the line passing through the middle point of a and b. So, we can consider the following figure to know the exact geometry.
 Considering cda, measure of angle cda is 90^{0}.
 Applying Pythagoras theorem,

 Therefore, shortest distance between c and highway joining a and b will be 40 miles.
