Express all the terms in terms of the lowest magnitude of factorial,

\(\frac{8!+9!}{10!}\)=\(\frac{8!+8!*9}{8!*9*10}\)=\(\frac{8!(1+9)}{8!*9*10}\)=\(\frac{8!*10}{8!*9*10}\)
=\(\frac{1}{9}\)

Ans. (C)

= (8!+9*8!)/10!

= 8!(1+9)/10!

= 10/10*9

= 1/9

C is the answer

\(\frac{8!+9!}{10!}\)

\(\frac{8!(1+9)}{10!}\)

Reducing 8! --> \(\frac{10}{10*9}\)

\(\frac{1}{9}\)

Hence C

Take 8 factorial common from numerator, this will render
\(\frac{8!(1+9)}{10*9*8!}\)

= \(\frac{1}{9}\)
Option C

= \(\frac{8! ( 1 + 9)}{8!(9*10)}\)

= \(\frac{8!*10}{8!(9*10)}\)

= \(\frac{1}{9}\), Answer must be (C)

Factoring out 8! from the numerator and denominator, we have:

8!(1 + 9)/[8!(9 x 10)]

Canceling the 8!, we have:

10/90

1/9

Answer: C
