# If 49x² - b = (7x + 1/2) (7x - 1/2), then the value of b is

a. 0

b. 1/**√**2

c. 1/4

d. 1/2

**Solution:**

It is given that

49x² - b = (7x + 1/2) (7x - 1/2)

Using the algebraic identity a² - b² = (a + b) (a - b)

49x² - b = 49x² - 1/4

Equating from both sides

b = 1/4

Therefore, the value of b is 1/4.

**✦ Try This: **If 36x² - b = (6x + 1/2) (6x - 1/2), then the value of b is

It is given that

36x² - b = (6x + 1/2) (6x - 1/2)

Using the algebraic identity a² - b² = (a + b) (a - b)

36x² - b = 36x² - 1/4

Equating from both sides

b = 1/4

Therefore, the value of b is 1/4.
