If log x = (bar{2}.3675) and log y = 0.9750, what is the value of x + y? Correct to three significant figures

  • A.
    1.18
  • B.
    1.31
  • C.
    9.03
  • D.
    9.44
  • E.
    9.46
Correct Answer: Option E
Explanation

log x = (bar{2}.3675) ; log y = 0.9750

(x = 10^{bar{2}.3675} = 0.02331 )

(y = 10^{0.9750} = 9.441 )

(x + y = 9.4641 approxeq 9.46)
