# If (4m + 3n)/(4m - 3n) = 7/4 Use Properties of Proportion to Find (2m^2 - 11n^2)/(2m^2 + 11n^2) - ICSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

If (4m + 3n)/(4m - 3n) = 7/4 use properties of proportion to find (2m^2 - 11n^2)/(2m^2  + 11n^2)

#### Solution

m/n = 11/4

m^2/n^2 = 121/16

(2m^2)/(11n^2) = (2 xx 121)/(11 xx 16)   (Multiplying both sides by 2/11)

(2m^2)/(11n^2) = 11/8

(2m^2 + 11n^2)/(2m^2 - 11n^2) = (11 + 8)/(11 - 8) (Applying  componendo and divdendo)

(2m^2 + 11n^2)/(2m^2  - 11n^2) = 19/3

(2m^2 - 11n^2)/(2m^2 + 11n^2) = 3/19   (Applying invertendo)

Is there an error in this question or solution?
