August 8th, 2019 by

In the earlier part of trigonometry series, we had seen basic concepts and some questions. In this part we will see some additional Examples to understand how to deal with CAT questions Example 1: 5sinx + 12cosx + s is always greater than or equal to 0. What could be the possible smallest value of s? a.) 13 b.) 10 c.) 6 d.) 2 Solution: 5sinx + 12cosx ≥ -s ⇒ 13(5/13sinx+12/13cosx) ≥ -s                  (Since 5,12 and 13 are Pythagorean triplets,) ⇒ 5/13 = cosA ⇒ 12/13 = sin A ⇒ 13(sinx cosA + sinA cosx) ≥ -s ⇒ 13(sin(x + A))

Linear Races Questions for CAT Exam

August 6th, 2019 by

1. In a race of 1000m, A beats B by 50m or 5 seconds. Find: B’s speed A’s speed Time is taken by A to complete the race Sol: Since A beats B by 50m. It means by the time A reaches the winning point, B is 50 m away and as A beats B by 5 seconds, it means B takes another 5 seconds to reach the winning point. This means B covers 50m in 5 seconds i.e., B’s speed is 50/5 = 10m/s. Since A wins by 50m, in the time A covers 1000m, B covers 950m in 95 seconds (950/10). Hence A will take 95 seconds to cover 1000m. Therefore, A’s speed is 1000/95= 10 10/19 m/sec. In this q

1. In a circular race of 1200m, A and B start from the same point and at the same time with speeds of 27km/hr and 45km/hr respectively. Find when will they meet again for the first time on the track when they are running i) In the same direction ii) In the opposite directions. Sol: Length of the track, L =1200m Speed of A= 27 x 5/18 = 7.5m/s Speed of B= 45 x 5/18 = 12.5m/s i) Same direction: Time = L/(Relative Speed)=1200/((12.5-7.5)) = 240 seconds ii) Opposite direction: Time= L/(Relative Speed)= 1200/((12.5+7.5))= 60 seconds It is a simple formula based question, in

How to develop a reading habit to boost your CAT score?

August 1st, 2019 by

Reading a book is like falling in love: It must happen naturally; you cannot force it, and if you do, the relationship develops cracks in no time, and before long, there is a break-up. If you wish to later start afresh, the past memories, opinions, prejudices begin interfere with the present, and the effort to reconcile meets a tragic end.

Compatibility is a major factor is our relationship with the books we read. I personally do n
