Question of The Day15-03-2021

If \(x^4+{1 \over x^4}=322\), then what is the value of \(x-{1 \over x}\)?

Answer

Correct Answer : b ) 4

Explanation :

Consider the given equation

\(x^4+{1 \over x^4}=322\)

We know, that

(a + b)2 = a2 + b2 + 2ab

Thus,

\(x^4+{1 \over x^4} +2=322 +2\)

\((x^2+{1 \over x^2})^2=324\)

\((x^2+{1 \over x^2})=18 ............(2)\)

Now, using identity

(a – b)2 = a2 + b2 – 2ab

We get,

\((x^2+{1 \over x^2}) -2=18-2\)

\((x -{1 \over x^2})^2=16\)

\((x-{1 \over x})=4\)

Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
