(1) r = 3s = 2t = 6u
(2) The product of r and u is equal to the product of s and t.


r,s,t,u VALUES must be in the range.. 1 to 9

(i)
r=6u... u must be 1 becuase if u=2 r value is >9

u=1 r=6 s =2 2=3

sufficient
(2)

ru=st

r=4 and u=2 s=1 t=8
r=2 and u=8 s=8 t=1

multiple solutions.

not sufficient


A

A


0.1236 ,0.2316
are not possible solutions

they don't satisfy the following equations.
r = 3s = 2t = 6u

only one solution possible... and that is 0.6231


Let me know any solution other than "0.6231" and satisfies above equation.

Same working . Got A.

It is given x = 0.rstu so x can be only equal to x =.6231.
