a) 43.06

b) 42.90

c) 44.90

d) 45.09

**Solutions**:

**1**. Let x be the required number, so that

x/11 * x/5 = 2695

x² = 11*5*2695

x² = 11 * 5 * 5 * 7 * 7 * 11 (factorize 2695)

x² = 5² * 7² * 11²

Taking square root on both the sides,

x = 5 * 7 * 11

**x = 385**

**2. **Given that the total amount collected = 1600 * 100 = $160,000

Let there be ‘x’ subscribers so that each of them paid $x

Therefore, x² = $160,000

Taking square root on both the sides,

**x = 400**

**3. **The number of men who formed the solid square = 2360 – 56 = 2304

Taking square root of 2304, we get **48**, which is the number of men in the front row.

**4. **Let x and y be the two numbers. Then, according to the question,

x (x + y) = 2418

y (x + y) = 3666

Adding the two equations, we get

x (x + y) + y (x + y) = 6084

(x + y) (x + y) = 6084

(x + y)² = 6084

Taking Square root on both the sides, we get

x + y = 78

As per the question, x = 2418/78 = 31

y = 78-31 = 47

**Answer = 31 and 47**

**5.** Let x be the required number, so that

x² = (75.15)² – (60.12)²

x² = (75.15 + 60.12) (75.15 – 60.12)

x² = ( 135.27) (15.03)

x² = 9 * 15.03 * 15.03

x² = 3² * 15.03²

Taking square root on both the sides,

X = 3 * 15.03 = **45.09**
