1. The product of two numbers is 9375 and the quotient, when the larger one is divided by the smaller, is 15. The sum of the numbers is:

2.  A. 380 B. 395 C. 400 D. 425

Explanation :

Let the numbers be x and y.

Then, xy = 9375 and$$\frac { X } { Y }$$=15

$$\frac { XY } { (X/Y) }$$=$$\frac { 9375 } { 15 }$$

y2 = 625.

y = 25.

x = 15y = (15 x 25) = 375.

Sum of the numbers = x + y = 375 + 25 = 400.
