C. 2\(\sqrt{2p}\)
D. 30\(\sqrt{q}\)
E. 300\(\sqrt{q}\)

EG


Let us see what MINIMUM quantity should each choice have..
\(\sqrt{200pq}=10\sqrt{2pq}\)

Let us see the choices..

A. 20\(\sqrt{q}\).......yes,p could be 2
B. 20\(\sqrt{p}\)......yes, q could be 2
C. 2\(\sqrt{2p}\).....NO, it has to be 20√(2p) and not 2√(2p)
D. 30\(\sqrt{q}\).....NO, it has to be 30√(2q) atleast
E. 300\(\sqrt{q}\)...yes

So some flaw in one of the two choices C and D, as there cannot be 2 answers

If p and q are positive integers, each of the following can be the value of 200pq‾‾‾‾‾‾√200pq except.

A. 20q‾√q
B. 20p‾√p
C. 22p‾‾‾√2p
D. 30q‾√q
E. 300q‾√

Upon doing the factorising 200 : we get 2*10^2

We can say : 10 (2pg)^1/2

From all the answer options the one which wont be correct would be the one without '0' therefore C is right..

For D , 900/200 = 4.5. Also incorrect

C & D are both incorrect

Hi, Bunuel
\(2\sqrt{2p}\) should be corrected to \(20\sqrt{2p}\)
