### Computer MCQs Series for PPSC, FPSC – Most Repeated MCQs | Set 4

What are you looking for? Let’s dig in quickly

## Explanation

• If the sum of a number and its square is 182.

The number can be figure out in this way.

Let suppose the number is y.

Square of y

y2

Sum of y2 and y equals 182

y2 + y = 182 ________ (i)

Through equation (i) we can easily find out the value of y (y = 13).

Number = ?

## Solution

Let suppose

Number = y

According to the given condition

y2 + y = 182

y2 + y – 182 = 0

y2 + 14y – 13y – 182 = 0

y(y + 14) – 13(y + 14) = 0

(y + 14)(y – 13) = 0

y + 14 = 0           or                y – 13 = 0

y = -14 (not possible)           or                y = 13 (possible)

## Conclusion

If the sum of a number and its square is 182, the number is  13.
