• # question_answer 91) The product of two numbers is 36 and their sum is 33. The positive difference between the two numbers is? A) 9                                 B) 3C) 1                                 D) 5

Suppose two numbers are x and y. Then,    $xy=36$                      ...(1) and       $=x+y=13$                 ...(2) On solving eq. (1) and (2), x=9 and y=4 Hence, the difference between the numbers $=\text{ }x\text{ }-\text{ }y$ $=94=5$
