If a ≥ 0 and \(a =\sqrt{8ab − 16b^2}\), then in terms of b, a =

(A) −4b
(B) b/4
(C) b
(D) 4b
(E) 4b^2


\(a =\sqrt{8ab − 16b^2}\)

Squaring both sides we get

\(a^2 =8ab − 16b^2\)
\(a^2 + 16b^2 - 8ab = 0\)

i.e. \((a-4b)^2 = 0\)

i.e. \(a = 4b\)

Answer: Option D

Hello from the GMAT Club BumpBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).
