Re: Rangpur Secondary 2011/2
for the least value let's take $f$ as tends to $2$ and $g$ as tends to $9$.so the least possible value of $fg$is tends to $18$.let's do the same with the highest value.
the range is$18<fg<3$
the range is$18<fg<3$

if f=3 and g=9 then 27<fg<3
Re: Rangpur Secondary 2011/2
27<fg<2..should be.

Can anyone confirm which one is the correct answer?
Re: Rangpur Secondary 2011/2
The correct answer is $27 < fg < 2$
Just look out for what the highest and least value of $fg$ can be.
