Q:

The difference between a positive proper fraction and its reciprocal is 9 / 20. Then the fraction is :

A) 3/5 B) 3/10
C) 4/5 D) 5/4

Answer:   C) 4/5



Explanation:

Let the required fraction be x. Then, (1 / x )- x = 9/20
1 - x^(2) / x = 9 / 20  =>  20 - 20 * x^(2) = 9 * x.
20 * x^(2) + 9 *x - 20 = 0.
=> (4 * x + 5) (5 * x - 4) = 0.
=> x = 4 / 5.
