If a + b = cx, b + c = ay and c + a = bz then what will be the approximate value of \(\frac{7}{8}(\frac{1}{x+1}+\frac{1}{y+1}+\frac{1}{z+1})\) ?

## Answer

Correct Answer : d ) 0.875

Explanation :Consider the given equations

\(a+b=cx\)

Or, \(a+b+c=cx+c\)

\(\frac{1}{x+1}=\frac{c}{a+b+c}......(1)\)

\(b+c=ay\)

Or, \(a+b+c=ay+a\)

\(\frac{1}{y+1}=\frac{a}{a+b+c}......(2)\)

\(c+a=bz\)

Or,\(a+b+c=bz+b\)

\(\frac{1}{z+1}=\frac{b}{a+b+c}......(3)\)

Adding equation (1), (2), and (3) we get

\(\frac{1}{x+1}+\frac{1}{y+1}+\frac{1}{z+1}=\frac{a+b+c}{a+b+c}\)

\(\frac{1}{x+1}+\frac{1}{y+1}+\frac{1}{z+1}=1\)

Therefore,

\(\frac{7}{8}(\frac{1}{x+1}+\frac{1}{y+1}+\frac{1}{z+1})=\frac{7}{8}=0.875\)

Hence, (d) is the correct answer.
