Two numbers differ by 3 and their product is 504. Find the numbers.

Answer :

Let the first number be ‘X’, so the other number will be ’(X+3)’.


X(X + 3) = 504


X2 + 3X– 504=0


On applying Sreedhracharya formula







X = –24 or 21.


if the first number is – 24 , then the other number is – 21.


if the first number is 21 , then the other number is 24.


The numbers are not (21,24) & (– 21, – 24).
