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:

Answer: Option

Explanation:

Let the numbers be *x* and *y*.

Then, xy = 9375 and |
x |
= 15. |

y |

xy |
= | 9375 |

(x/y) |
15 |

*y*^{2} = 625.

*y* = 25.

*x* = 15*y* = (15 x 25) = 375.

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

25*15=375. Once again when you add 25 its 400.

Since units place of product has 5, B and D can be easily ruled out.

Now 9375/15 is 625 which is nothing but 25 sq.

Hence one of the no. is surely 25 and other no. is 25 * 15 = 275.

Hence 380 is also ruled out.
