Last question before leaving office.

a,b,c are in GP : 1,2,4

so : ax^2+2bx+c=0
x^2 + 4x + 4 = 0 :: (x+2)^2 = 0
roots : -2,-2

Let one root of the next equation be -2 other take 1.

so we have x^2 + x - 2 = 0


Check the options:

a/b = 1/2

b/e = 4

c/f = -2

Ye to kuch bhi nahi nikal raha............ :(

I need to leave

aapka approach toh sahi lag raha...answer kyun nahi nikla???
