Basic Formulae 1. ( a+b) 2 = a 2 + b 2 + 2ab 2. (a-b) 2 = a 2 +b 2 -2ab 3. ( a+b) 2 - (a – b) 2 = 4ab 4. (a+b) 2 + (a – b) 2 = 2 (a 2 +b 2 ) 5. (a 2 – b 2 ) = (a+b) (a-b) 6. (a+b+c) 2 =a 2 +b 2 +c 2 + 2(ab +bc+ca) 7. (a 3 +b 3 ) = ( a+b) (a 2 –ab +b 2 ) 8. (a 3 –b 3 ) = (a-b) (a 2 +ab + b 2 ) 9. (a 3 +b 3 +c 3 -3abc) = (a+b+c) (a 2 +b 2 +c 2 -ab-bc-ca) If a+b+c = 0, then (a 3 +b 3 +c 3 ) =3abc

258
On what dates of April 2005 did Sunday fall?

259
Calendar Solution: You should find for 1st April 2005 and then you find the Sundays date. A = 2005 / 7 = 3 B = 2005 / 4 = 501 / 7 = 4 C = 1 / 7 = 1 D = 6 ( A + B + C + D) -2 = ----------------------- 7 ( 3 + 4 + 1 + 6) -2 = ----------------------- = 12 / 7 = 5 = Friday. 7 1st is Friday means Sunday falls on 3,10,17,24

260
Calendar What was the day on 5 th January 1986

261
Calendar Solution: A = 1986 / 7 = 5 B = 1986 / 4 = 496/7 = 6 C = 5 / 7 = 5 D = 0 A + B + C + D -2 = ----------------------- 7 5 + 6 + 5 + 0-2 ----------------------- = 14 / 7 = Sunday 7

262
Clock: In every minute, the minute hand gains 55 minutes on the hour hand In every hour both the hands coincide once. = (11m/2) – 30h (hour hand to min hand) = 30h – (11m/2) (min hand to hour hand) If you get answer in minus, you have to subtract your answer with 360 o Clocks

263
Find the angle between the minute hand and hour hand of a clock when the time is 7:20.

264
Solution: = 30h – (11m/2) = 30 (7) – 11 20/2 = 210 – 110 = 100 Angle between 7: 20 is 100 o Clocks

265
How many times in a day, the hands of a clock are straight?

266
Clocks Solution: In 12 hours, the hands coincide or are in opposite direction 22 times a day. In 24 hours, the hands coincide or are in opposite direction 44 times a day.

267
Clocks How many times do the hands of a clock coincide in a day?

268
Clocks Solution: In 12 hours, the hands coincide or are in opposite direction 11 times a day. In 24 hours, the hands coincide or are in opposite direction 22 times a day.

269
Clocks At what time between 7 and 8 o’clock will the hands of a clock be in the same straight line but, not together?

270
Clocks Solution:h = 7 = 30h – 11m/2 180 = 30 * 7 – 11 m/2 On simplifying we get, 5 5/11 min past 7

271
Clocks At what time between 5 and 6 o’clock will the hands of a clock be at right angles?

272
Clocks Solution:h = 5 90 = 30 * 5 – 11m/2 Solving 10 10/11 minutes past 5

273
Clocks Find the angle between the two hands of a clock at 15 minutes past 4 o’clock

274
Clocks Solution: Angle = 30h – 11m/2 = 30*4 – 11*15 / 2 The angle is 37.5 o

275
Clocks At what time between 5 and 6 o’clock are the hands of a clock together?

276
Clocks Solution: h = 5 O = 30 * 5 – 11m/2 m = 27 3/11 Solving 27 3/11 minutes past 5

316
Answer: n( H u E) = 1000, n (H) = 750, n (E) = 400, n( H u E) = n (H) + n (E) – n( H n E) 1000 = 750 +400 – n ( H n E) n ( H n E) = 1150 – 100 = 150 No. of people can speak Hindi only _ = n ( H n E) = n ( H) – n( H n E) = 750 – 150 = 600

317
