reciprocal = (A+B)^2/AB
= (A^2+B^2+2AB)/AB = B/A + A/B +2

A. \(\frac{(AB)}{(A^2 + 2AB + B^2)}\).

B. \(\frac{A}{B} + \frac{B}{A} + AB\).

C. \(\frac{B}{A} + \frac{A}{B} + 2\).

D. \(\frac{(A^2 + B^2)}{AB}\).

E. \(\frac{A}{B} + 2AB\).



\(\frac{(AB)}{(A + B)^2}\)

Reciprocal will be -

\(\frac{(A + B)^2}{(AB)}\) => \(\frac{A^2}{AB} + \frac{B^2}{AB} + \frac{2AB}{AB}\) => \(\frac{A}{B} + \frac{B}{A} + 2\)

Hence correct answer will be (C)
