1. The sum of the two numbers is 12 and their product is 35. What is the sum of the reciprocals of these numbers ?

2.  A. $$\frac {12} {35 }$$ B. $$\frac {1} {35 }$$ C. $$\frac {35} {8 }$$ D. $$\frac {7 } {3 2 }$$

$$\frac { a+b } { ab }$$=$$\frac {12} {35 }$$   $$[ \frac { 1 } { b }+$$$$\frac { 1 } { a}]$$=$$\frac {12} {35 }$$
Sum of reciprocals of given numbers =$$\frac {12} {35 }$$
