20 can be written as ( 10 + 10 ).
and 10 x 10 = 100.
In this case, the product will be maximum.

Others numbers maybe =
* 11 + 9 = 20
11 x 9 = 99.

* 18 + 2 = 20
18 x 2 = 36

*17 + 3. = 20
17 x 3 = 51.

* 16 + 4 = 20
16 x 4 = 64

* 15 + 5 = 20
15 x 5 = 75.

* 14 + 6 = 20
14 x 6 = 84.

* 13 + 7 = 20
13 x 7 = 91.

* 12 + 8 = 20
12 x 8 = 96.

* 11 + 9 = 20.
11 x 9 = 99.

* 10 + 10 = 20.
10 x 10 = 100.

Hence by hit and trial method it's proved that ( 10 + 10 ) is the answer.
thanku u tried ur level best bet it should be done on the basis of application and derivateves
oh okay. :)
Still, it's a proof that it actually happens!!:)
The product is maximum when it is divided into two "equal" parts!
ya i know anyway thanku
Yeah, using hit and trial. :)

Let one part = x
other part = (20-x)

their product, p = x(20-x) = 20x - x²
For the product, p to be maximum

So, product is maximum when we divide 20 into 2 parts as (10,10).

Note: If you want to show that dividing 20 into (10,10) yields maximum product, not minimum; find the second derivative of p. If the value of second derivative at x=10 comes as negative, then it is maximum. (It comes -2, so it is maximum).
thanku so much yar
you are welcome!
