0% (00:00) correct 0% (00:00) wrong based on 1 sessions
If a> 0 and b>0 and 2c=radical a/b , what is the value of b?

1) a=8 and c=2
2) c^2/a = 1/2

radical = square root (I couldn't find the sign to insert)

I will post the answer shortly.

If a> 0 and b>0 and 2c=radical a/b , what is the value of b?

1) a=8 and c=2
2) c^2/a = 1/2

D?

1) 2*2 = sqrt(8/b). Sufficient

2) 2c = sqrt(a)/sqrt(b)
4c^2 = a/b
c^2/a = 1/(4*b)----N

Also given c^2/a = 1/2-----M
Combine N & M. Sufficient.

D.

D it is
1) 4=sqrt(8/b)
16=8/b
b=1/2

2)c^2/a=1/2
a=2c^2
2c=sqrt{(2c^2)/b}
4c^2=(2c^2)/b
2=1/b
b=1/2

Got D

From I, c=2, a=8 hence 2*2 = sqrt(8/b)

hence 16 = 8/b i.e. b = 1/2 SUFF

From II, c^2 = a/2 and 2c = sqrt(a/b) i.e. 1/4 * a/b = a/2

i.e. b = 1/2 SUFF

Hence D

1) a=8 and c=2
2) c^2/a = 1/2

A,B ARE POSITIVE 2C = SQ A / SQ B WHAT IS B

FROM ONE WE HAVE VALUE OF A,C THUS SUFF

FROM TWO

STEM IS 4C^2 = A/B

THUS C^2 /A = B/4 = 1/2.........SUFF

MY ANSWER IS D
