										Hello student,
Please find the answer to your question below
Let the numbers be a,b,c,d
From given a+d=21 and b+c=19
a2+b2+c2+d2=442
As they are in proportion ad=bc
When ratio of 2 terms=ratio of 2 other terms they are in proportion
So (a2+d2+2ad)+(b2+c2+2bc)=441+361
442+4ad=802
ad=90 So ad=bc=90
(a-d)2=(a+d)2-4ad=441-360=81
So a-d=9 and a+d=21
So a=15 d=6
Similarly (b-c)2=361-360=1
So b-c=1 and b+c=19 So b=10,c=9
So Four proportionals are 15,10,9,6
