Answer: (d) 19, 14

Solution:-
Let the two number be X and Y.

The sum of square and product of two numbers are 557 & 266
Then, X² + Y² = 557  & X Y = 266

Now, (X + Y)² = X² + Y² + 2 x X Y
= 557 + 2 x 266
(X + Y)² = 1089
Square root on both side,
X + Y = 33 ………….. (1)

(X – Y)² = X² + Y² – 2 x X Y
= 557 – 532
(X – Y)² = 25
Square root on both side,
X – Y = 5 ……………. (2)

Add equation (1) & (2),
X + Y + X – Y = 33 + 5
2 X = 38
X = 38/2
X = 19
Put the value of X = 19 in equation (1),
Then, 19 + Y = 33
Y = 33 – 19
Y = 14

Then, two numbers are 19, 14.

Hence, the correct answer is option (d) 19, 14.
