10) obtain 277 from 3,25,50,65,100.use 4 arithmetic operations only.

11) 1#2=x ,2#3=y, 4#4=z
4@14=a, 5@15=b, d@e=f

( i don't remember values for x,y,z,a,b,c,d,e,f)

d) write a function witj the following conditions,
  1)It should have one integer parameter.
  2)If the value passed is -ve, return -1.
  3)If the value passed is a perfect  square, return root of that number.
  4)If the value passed is a not a perfect square, return that number itself.
