(a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2
(a − b)2 = a2 − 2ab + b2
(a + b) (a – b) = a2 − b2
(a + b)3 = a3 + 3a2b + 3ab2 + b3 = a3 + b3 + 3ab (a + b)
(a – b)3 = a3 – 3a2b + 3ab2 – b3 = a3 – b3 – 3ab (a – b)
(a + b + c)2 = a2 + b2 + c2 + 2ab + 2bc + 2ca
a3 + b3 = (a + b) (a2 – ab + b2)
a3 – b3 = (a – b) (a2 + ab + b2)
if a + b + c = 0, then a3 + b3 + c3 = 3abc.

Parts in a decimal fraction:
In a decimal fraction, a dot(.) or a decimal point separate the whole part of the number from the fractional part.
The part right side of decimal point is called the decimal part of the number as it represents a part of 1. The part left to the decimal point is called the integral part of the number.

The comparison of two quantities of same kind by using division is called ‘Ratio’
Ratio of two quantities ‘a’ and ‘b’ is denoted by a : b , read as a is to b
In a ratio a : b , a is called first term or antecedent and b is called second term or consequent.
Compound Ratio: The compound ratio of a : b and c : d is denoted by a : b : : c : d
a : b : : c : d = a × c : b × d
the compound ratio of ( a : b), (c : d) and( x : y) is acx : bdy

Alligation: Alligation is a rule, to find the ratio in which two or more quantities at the given price must be mixed to produce a mixture of a desired price.
Mixture: Mixture means mixing two or more quantities. It can be expressed in the form of percentage or ratio.
Mean price: The cost price of a unity quantity of the mixture is called the mean price.
Alligation Rule: If two quantities are mixed, then
If two ratios are equal, then they are in proportion.
If a : b = c : d , then a, b, c and d are in proportion
a and d are extremes
b and c are means
product of means = product of extremes
Unitary method: The method in which we first find the value of one unit and then the value of the required no. of units is known as unitary method.
Direct proportion: In two quantities, when one quantity increase(decreases) the other quantity also increases(decreases) then two quantities are in direct proportion.
Inverse proportion: In two quantities, when one quantity increase(decreases) the other quantity also decreases (increases) then two quantities are in direct proportion.
Percent means per 100, ‘x’ percent means ‘x’ hundredth.
Converting a fraction into percentage:
∎ If the price of commodity decreased by R%, then the increase in consumption so as not to
∎ If the price of commodity increased by R%, then the increase in consumption so as not to
Results on machines: If the present value of a machine is P and it deprecates at the rate of R% per year, then
Results on Population: If the present Population is P and it increases at the rate of R% per year, then
Profit and loss
Cost price (C.P.): – Cost price is the price for which an article is bought or the price paid by a customer to by an article.
Selling price (S.P.): – Selling price is the price for which an article is sold.
Profit: – If Selling price is greater than the cost price, then we get the profit.
Profit = S.P – C.P.
Loss: – If Selling price is less than the Cost price then, we get loss.
Loss = C.P – S.P.
Some formulae in profit and loss:
∎If selling price is equal to cost price but uses false weight then
∎ if the selling price of an item is at a profit of x% but uses false weight which is y% less than the original weight then
∎ if the selling price of an item is at a loss of x% but uses false weight which is y% less than the original weight then
Principal: – The money which is borrowed is called ‘principal’(P).
Rate of interest: – percentage of interest per year is called rate of interest(R).
Time: – The period for which money is called time(T).
Interest: – The money which is paid for the use of the principal is called interest (S.I).
Amount: – The total money which is paid after the expiry of the time is called amount.
Amount = Principal + S.I
Compound interest allows us to earn interest on interest.
P = principal, R = rate of interest and n = no. of terms or time period.
∎When the rates are different for different years, like X%, Y% and Z% for first, second and third year respectively, then
∎The time period after which interest is added to principal is called conversion period. When interest is compounded h yearly, there are two conversion periods in a year. In such case, half year rate will be half of the annual rate.
A business which is under taken by two or more persons jointly is called ‘Partnership. Those persons are called as Partners.
Types of Partnership:
Partnership is of two types (i) General or Simple partnership (ii) Compound partnership
(i) Simple partnership or General partnership:
In this type, the period of the investment is the same. Partners divide either profit and loss in the ratio of their investments.
If X and Y invests ₹x and ₹y respectively in a business for one year, then the end of the year
X’s share of profit : Share of s profit = x : y
(ii) Compound Partnership:
In this type, the investment and period of time are different. Their investments have to be reduced to invests per month or year. The profit or loss will be divided in the ratio of these converted investments.
If X invests ₹x per p months and Y invests ₹y per q months, then
X’s share of profit : Share of s profit = x : y

The ratio of work done by A and B is 2 : 1
The ratio of time taken by A and B to finish the work is 1 : 2
∎ If the work done by A is thrice as the work done by B, then
The ratio of work done by A and B is 3 : 1
The ratio of time taken by A and B to finish the work is 1 : 3
Time and Distance
If the distance travelled = d, Speed = s and Time taken to travel = t, then
Distance = Speed × Time
⇒ d = s × t
∎ Relation between the speed in kilometre per hour and speed in meter per seconds is
18 km/hr = 5 m/sec
∎ In the same direction relative speed = Difference of the Speeds
∎ In the opposite direction relative speed = sum of the Speeds
∎ If the two-object moving in the same direction with speeds x km/hr and y km/hr respectively, then their relative speed = (x – y) km/hr.
∎ If the two-object moving in the opposite direction with speeds x km/hr and y km/hr respectively, then their relative speed = (x + y) km/hr.

Upstream: In water the direction against the stream is called Upstream.
∎If the speed of object moving in a water is x km/hr and speed of the water flow (stream) is y km/hr then
For upstream relative speed = (x – y) km/hr.
For downstream relative speed = (x + y) km/hr.
Speed in still water = ½ (x + y) km/hr
Rate of stream = ½ (x – y) km/hr
For Train Problems
∎ Time taken by a train of length x meters to cross (pass) a pole (or a standing man) is equal to the time taken by the train to cover x meters.
∎ Time taken by a train of length x meters to cross a stationary object (like a bridge) of length y meters is the time taken by train to cover (x + y) meters.
∎ If the two trains moving in the same direction with speeds x km/hr and y km/hr respectively, then their relative speed = (x – y) km/hr.
∎ If the two trains moving in the opposite direction with speeds x km/hr and y km/hr respectively, then their relative speed = (x + y) km/hr.

Total surface area (T.S.A) = πr (r +l) square units.
Volume = (R2 + r2 + Rr) πh cubic units.
Frustum of a cone:
When a cone is cut by a plane parallel to the base of the cone then the portion between the plane and the base is called the frustum of the cone.
L.S.A = πl (r + R) square units.
T.S.A = πl [r2 + R2 + l (R + r)] square units.
Total surface area (T.S.A) = 4πr2 square units.
Curved surface area (C.S.A) = 2πr2 square units.
Total surface area (T.S.A) = 3πr2 square units.
Surface area = Area of the base + Area of the each of the lateral faces
∎ Average of n natural numbers = ½ (n + 1).
Random Experiment: If in an experiment all the possible outcomes are known in advance and none of the outcomes can be predicted with certainty, then such an experiment is called a random experiment.
Ex: Throwing a die, Tossing A coin.
Events: The possible outcomes of a trail are called events.
To measure the chance of it happening numerically we classify them as follows:
Certain: Something that must happen
Equally likely: something that have the same chance of occurring.
Less likely: Something that would occur with less chance.
More likely: Something that would occur with more chance.
Impossible: Something that cannot be happen.
Complimentary event: – Let E denote the event, ‘not E’ is called complimentary event of E. It is denoted by . P ( ) = 1 – P(E) ⟹ P ( ) +P(E) = 1.
∎0 ≤ P(E) ≤ 1
Deck of cards: – A deck of playing cards consists of 52 cards which are divided into 4 suites of 13 cards each. They are black spade, black clubs , red heart and red diamond. The cards in each suit are: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 ,10, Ace, Jack, Queen and King. Jack, Queen and King are called face (picture) cards.
Ordinary year: A year having 365 days is called ordinary year. In ordinary years we have 52 complete weeks and 1 extra day.
7 months ⟶ 31 days.
4 months ⟶ 3 days.
1 month (February) ⟶ 28 days.
Leap year: A year having 36 days is called leap year. In leap years we have 52 complete weeks and 2 extra days.
7 months ⟶ 31 days.
4 months ⟶ 3 days.
1 month (February) ⟶ 29 days.
∎ A leap year is divisible by 4.
∎ A century to be leap year if it must be divided by 400.
∎ In a century 76 ordinary years and 24 leap years.
Odd day: Extra days apart from the complete weeks in a given period is called odd day.
∎ An ordinary year has 1 odd day.
∎ A leap year has two odd days.
∎ A century has 5 odd days. (76 × 1 + 24 × 2 = 124 odd days = 17 weeks = 5 odd days).
∎In 200 years ⟶ 3 odd days.
In 300 years ⟶ 1 odd day.
In 400 years ⟶ 0 odd day.
In 800 years ⟶ 0 odd day.
In 1200 years ⟶ 0 odd day.

A clock has two hand (i) Shorter hand or hour hand (ii) Longer hand or Minute hand
∎For every hour, both the hands are coincide once.
Angle made by Hour hand in 12 hours = 3600
In one hour, hour hand can make the angle = 300.
Angle made by Minute hand in 60 minutes = 3600
In one minute, Minute hand can make the angle = 60
∎ When two hands are rotated in clockwise direction
- They may be opposite to each other.
- They may be coincide to each other.
- They may be perpendicular to each other.
Two hands – Coincide:
Angle between two hands = 00
In the span of 1 hour, they coincide only 1 time.
12 hours, they coincide 11 times.
1 day, they coincide 22 times.
Two hands – opposite direction:
Angle between two hands =1800
In the span of 1 hour, they coincide only 1 time.
12 hours, they coincide 11 times.
1 day, they coincide 22 times.
Two hands – perpendicular:
Angle between two hands = 900
In the span of 1 hour, they coincide 2 times.
12 hours, they coincide 22 times.
1 day, they coincide 44 times.
∎ When two hands are opposite to each other, then that two hands are 30 minutes spaces apart.
∎ When two hands are perpendicular to each other, then that two hands are 15 minutes spaces apart.
Where M = Minutes
H = Hours (starting hour)
θ = angle between two hands
If starting hour is at 12’O clock, then take H = 0
