\([\sqrt{73} * \sqrt{239}] ÷ [\sqrt{7.2} + \sqrt{15.7}]
8*15/(2+4) = 20
IMO C

Here we have can see that √ of 73 is close to 81 rather than 64 so the closest value for it would be 9. Similarly √ of 239 is closest to the value of √ of 225, i.e 15.

Hence 9*15/2+4 = 19.28 which is closest to 20. So IMO : it's C

√73 is about 8.5.

√239 is about 15.5.

√7.2 is about 3.

√15.7 is about 4.

15.5 x 8.5 = 131.75 or about 130

3 + 4 = 7

Thus,

130/7 is about 20.

Answer: C

I calculated the lowest and highest possible values of the expressions.
Lowest means (8*15)/(2+3) and highest means (9*16)/(3+4). The results are 24 and 20.XX. So the closest approximation is 20.

P.S: 25 cannot be the answer as the max value is 24 so C it is
