'a' and 'b' are two different numbers taken from the numbers 1-50. What is the largest value that a−ba+b can have? What is the largest value that a+ba−b can have?
Given a and b are two different numbers between 1 to 50. Let a = 50 and b = 1 ∴ a−ba+b=50−150+1=4951, which is the largest value. Similarly
Let a = 50 and b = 49 ∴a+ba−b=50+4950−49=991, which is the largest value.
What can be the maximum value of HCF of any two numbers a and b given that a<b?
If `a' and `b' are whole numbers such that b > 1 and ab = 144, what is the value of (a - 2)b+2 ?
