# What will be The Sum Their Reciprocals?

The sum and product of two numbers and 12 and 35 respectively. What will be the sum their reciprocals?

- 1/3
- 1/5
- 12/35
- 35/12

**Answer: (3) 12/35**

**Explanation:-
**Let the two numbers be X and Y

The sum of two numbers = 12

Then, X + Y = 12

The product of two numbers = 35

Then, X Y = 35

The sum of their reciprocals = 1/X + 1/Y

= (X + Y)/X Y

Put the value of X + Y = 12 & X Y = 35

Then, 1/X + 1/Y = 12/35

Hence, the answer is (3) 12/35.
