A. (201)^2 / t
B. [(202)(201)]/t
C. 201/t
D. 202/t
E. [(202)(201)]/t^2


D

s = 100*...*200
t = 100*...*200*201
This means
s = t/201
Therefore,
1/s + 1/t = 201/t + 1/t = 202/t

I get D..

s=100*...200
t=100*...201, basically t=201*s

s=t/201

1/s=201/t

201/t + 1/t= 202/t

D.

t = 201s or s = t/201

1/s + 1/t = 201/t + 1/t = 202/t

Answer = D

s = 100*...*200
t = 100*...*200*201
t = s * 201

So, \(s = \frac{t}{201}\) & \(\frac{1}{s} = \frac{201}{t}\)

Therefore,

\(\frac{1}{s} + \frac{1}{t} = \frac{201}{t} + \frac{1}{t} = \frac{202}{t}\)

If you become confused for big numbers, just take easy numbers as example.
Here, Let s= 2*3 and t = 2*3*4 ,

So t= s*4 or S= t/4. Similarly in the actual problem
s =t/201. 1/s = 1/(t/201) or 1/s = 201/t
1/s + 1/t = 201/t + 1/t = 202/t
Answer-D

C. 201/t
D. 202/t
E. 202*201/t^2


We are given that s is the product of the integers from 100 to 200 inclusive and that t is the product of the integers from 100 to 201 inclusive. Thus, we know the following:

s x 201 = t

s = t/201

We must determine the value of 1/s + 1/t in terms of t. Since we know that s = t/201, we can substitute t/201 for s in the expression 1/s + 1/t:

1/(t/201) + 1/t

201/t + 1/t

202/t

Answer: D

D. 202/t

Ans D

1/100*..200 + 1/(100*..201) =1/S

(since 1/100*..200=201/t => 1/S=201/t)

201/t+1/t= 202/t
