A) $$\frac{3}{4}$$

B) $$\frac{4}{3}$$

C) $$\frac{10}{7}$$

D) $$\frac{7}{4}$$

E) $$\frac{7}{3}$$

If $$\frac{{7x^2 + 72xy + 4y^2}}{{4x^2 + 12xy + 5y^2}}$$ = 4,

We can simplify this equation as follows

$$7x^2 + 72xy + 4y^2 = 4(4x^2 + 12xy + 5y^2) = 16x^2 + 48xy + 20y^2$$

-> $$16x^2 - 7x^2 + 48xy - 72xy + 20y^2 - 4y^2 = 9x^2 - 24xy + 16y^2 = (3x)^2 - 2(3x)(4y) + (4y)^2 = 0$$

-> $$(3x - 4y)^2 = 0$$ -> $$3x = 4y$$ -> $$\frac{x}{y} = \frac{4}{3}$$

$$\frac{x}{y} + 1 = \frac{4}{3} + 1$$ -> $$\frac{{x+y}}{y} = \frac{7}{3}$$ (Option E)

Better to invest time and get this question correct

$$\frac{{7x^2 + 72xy + 4y^2}}{{4x^2 + 12xy + 5y^2}}$$ = 4

$$7x^2 + 72xy + 4y^2$$ = 4 $$4x^2 + 12xy + 5y^2$$

just solve this expression to get the inline
9x^2 - 24xy +16y^2 = 0
3x-4y * 3x-4y = 0

x = 4/3 y

$$\frac{{x+y}}{y}$$ = 7/3

E
