Determine a possible value of x from the equation 5x-2 X 23x/(x+1) = 4 ?

A)
1

B)
2

C)
0

D)
4


Correct Answer :

2


Explanation :

5x- 2 X 23x/(x + 1) = 4
5x- 2 X 23x/(x + 1) = 50 * 22
Equation the indicates of equal bases,
x - 2 = 0 and 3x/(x + 1) = 2
From both these questions
x = 2

If 0.42 * 100K = 42, then what is the value of K?

A)
4

B)
2

C)
1

D)
3


Correct Answer :

1


Explanation :

0.42 * 100K = 42
(42/100) * 100K = 42
100K = (42*100)/42
100K = 100
100K = 1001
K=1

What is the value of (443+547)2 + (443-547)2 / (443*443) + (547*547) ?

A)

0


B)

1


C)

2


D)

3



Correct Answer :

2
