Question

Sol. (3) Let the two numbers are ( x ) and ( y ). ( x+y=10 ldots ldots ldots ldots . ) (i)
( x y=20 ldots ldots ldots ldots . ) (ii)
Dividing equation
(i) by (ii)
[
frac{x+y}{x y}=frac{10}{20} Rightarrow frac{1}{y}+frac{1}{x}=frac{1}{2}
]

# Ex. 1. The sum of two numbers is 10. Their product is 20. Find the sum of the reciprocals of the two numbers. (1) 1
