#  Question  Ans 

1. 
Make q the subject of the formula in the equation \(\frac{mn}{a^2}  \frac{pq}{b^2} = 1\) A. \(q = \frac{b^2(mn  a^2)}{a^2 p}\) B. \(q = \frac{m^2 n  a^2}{p^2}\) C. \(q = \frac{mn  2b^2}{a^2}\) D. \(q = \frac{b^2 (n^2  ma^2)}{n}\)
Show Content
Detailed Solution\(\frac{mn}{a^2}  \frac{pq}{b^2} = 1\)\(\frac{mn}{a^2}  1 = \frac{pq}{b^2}\) \(\frac{mn  a^2}{a^2} = \frac{pq}{b^2}\) \(pq = \frac{b^2 (mn  a^2)}{a^2}\) \(q = \frac{b^2(mn  a^2)}{a^2 p}\) There is an explanation video available below.
