E: ITS NOT A GMAT FAVORITE QUESTION.

AR^(J+K) = M ..............1
AR^(J-K) = N ...............2

DIVIDE 1 BY 2

AR^(J+K) / AR^(J-K) = M/N

R^K = SQRT(M/N) .....................3

PUT THE VALUE OF R^K ON EQ EITHER 1 (OR 2):
AR^(J+K) = M
AR^J R^K = M
AR^J (SQRT(M/N)) = M
AR^J = M /SQRT(M/N)
AR^J = SQRT(MN)

SO E.
