A. x − 1033
B. x − 1034
C. x − 2066
D. x − 2067
E. 2x − 2065


get 1033*1032 in terms of 1034*1033
\(1033*1032=1033(1034-2)=1033*1034-2*1033=x-2*1033=x-2066\)

C

1033*1032=(1034-1)*(1033-1)=1034*1033-1034-1033+1
=x-2066
Ans. (C)

Hi,

Let us assume 1032 as a, hence 1033=a+1 and 1034=a+2.
This means that x=(a+2) * (a+1) and we have to find an option that equals (a+1) * a.
Substituting the value of x in the options, we get C as the answer as -
    x - 2066
    = ((a+2) * (a+1)) - (2 * (a+1))
    =(a + 1) (a+2 - 2)
    =(a+1) * a

1032*1033 can also be written as (1034-2)*1033 = (1034*1033) - (2*1033) = x - 2066.

Hence, C.
