If (a+b)/2 = rad(ab), which of the following can be true

I a>0

II a=0

III a<0I picked I II and III but apparently its only I and II

If *a* < 0, then you’ve got trouble. If *b* is positive, then will be the square root of a negative number, which is a no-no. If *b* is also negative, though, which would make the number inside the square root positive, then you’ve got a negative on the left side of the equation. You don’t take the square root of a positive number and get a negative.
