In triangle ABC, angle B = 90°. A perpendicular BD on to AC divides triangle ABC into two right triangles such that the area of triangle ABD, the smaller of the two right triangles, is 216. A perpendicular DE on to BC divides triangle BDC into two right triangles such that the area of triangle DEB, the smaller of the two right triangles is 138.24. This process is carried out infinitely many times. What is the area of triangle ABC?

Hi Friends... its just 60 more days to go for CAT...here sharing some tips for last 2 months preparations :

**Schedule your CAT date:** If you are confident with your preparation, you can go for early dates as it will save your time for preparation of other major MBA exams like XAT, NMAT, IIFT Entrance which can bring you many more admission opportunities to top B-schools in India.

If you are well-prepared, you should not schedule the CAT test in the latter half of the window as feedback emerging from the first half of the test window may unnecessarily stress and confuse you.

**Take as many mock CAT as possible:** Toppers and Experts suggest that you should practice a lot and take as many mock CAT as possible in last few weeks. You should practice a lot; only practice can make you perfect and improve your accuracy.

Come out with a proper analysis of your performance after each mock test and try to find out weaknesses and strengths. At the end of each Mock CAT, you can check your scores in each area/section and find out where you are lacking expertise in, and concentrate on those topics more before the next Mock CAT. This way, you would ensure that whatever the weak areas you have you can work on them before the next Mock CAT.

While mock is must at this stage, **cautions that you should not try to attempt more questions in Mock CAT at the cost of your accuracy. **

**Plan your calendar:** As you approach nearer to your CAT date, you should devote more time to study. Suggesting the time you need to devote in a 100 days framework for CAT prep,For the first 6-8 weeks, 10-14 hours per week would be sufficient. The next 6-8 weeks, one should do 16-18 hours.

The final few weeks, one should shoot for 25-30 hours. Working executives should plan leave in the last 2-3 weeks so that they can completely concentrate on their preparation. You should have finished learning all concepts by October 1. The last month of preparation should be less of preparation and more of practicing.

Given enough time, you will realize that you can always solve almost all the problems. But the fact that the same has to be done within a time limit makes the task onerous and challenging.
Work more on strong areas and identify doable weak areas:
With 6-8 weeks remaining for your D-day, you should clearly identify your strong areas and weak areas. Once you identify the same, you should build on your strength now and pick a few weak areas which you can work afresh from a concept level.
**An equal command on all areas may not be necessary as you can always reduce the number of attempts and instead go for more accuracy in your strong sections.**

**
Forget other exams, focus on CAT:
**As you must have worked on the basic concepts for your MBA exams in last few weeks, it is time to focus completely on CAT now.
While basics for almost all the MBA exams remain the same, you can focus on specific nature of different exams like XAT, NMIMS, IIFT Entrance after your CAT.
All the Best !!

The Chicken McNugget Theorem:
It states that for any two relatively prime positive integers 'm, n', the greatest integer that cannot be written in the form 'am+bn' for non-negative integers a, b is 'mn-m-n'.

A number arrangement machine, when given a particular input, rearranges it following a particular rule. The following is the illustration of the input and the steps of arrangement.

Input : 10, 18, 22, 14, 8, 16.

Step I : 100, 324, 484, 196, 64, 256.

Step II : 25, 81, 121, 49, 16, 64.

Step III : 5, 9, 11, 7, 4, 8.

Step IV : 125, 729, 1331, 343, 64, 512.

Step V : 25, 405, 847, 147, 0, 256.

If the input is "14, 8, 12, 4, 2, 10", then the result after Step IV of this sequence will be

(a) 7, 4, 6, 2, 1, 5

(b) 343, 64, 216, 8, 1, 125

(c) 147, 0, 72, -8, -3, 25

(d) 49, 16, 36, 4, 1, 25.

plz tell me the logic from step iv to v....

Thanks for the share. Its a document tanker....:D

@guitarpunk

There are so many comments and likes but has anyone bought and received this material?? Is this even legally sold?? I hope this is not a scam. I hope everyone realizes that this is a breach of copyrights of a lot of CAT prep agency.I do not mind, however, if we do not end up getting the material then we cannot go and get any help since trying to buy the product itself may get us into trouble.

@guitarpunk

I hope somebody can help establish if this is genuine. Thanks @Ashmit_IIT-B for sharing this.

@Toughluck2009@yoshitagupta@vivek_enzo@SubhankarC: Puys... Apologies for the random tag. Looking at your comments, just thought you could provide some clarity on this.

Thanks!!

@guitarpunk ... Dude just think once...

1)If people had found disputes, would they be actually thanking the guy sharing the post?

2)Do you not think people would have reported against this post if found discrepancies?(Pagalguy is really strict with report)

3)Why would people bother to establish the genuineness? Will it really matter to them if someone else buys or not?

4)Who cares whether it is legal or not as long as it can help them(after all its just a study material)?

5)What is the point of starting a DEBATE/ESTABLISHING THE UNDERLYING TRUTH when others seem really satisfied?(Even you said you don't have a problem either )

Moral of the story: If people have a problem, they will speak for themselves. Don't worry yaar...Chill...Happy preparation

NB:Even I'm quite satisfied with the material.

x=2^a*3^d*5^g

y=2^b*3^e*5^h

z=2^c*3^f*5^i

a+b+c=1 , no of solutions= 3

d+e+f=1 , no of solutions= 3

g+h+i=1 , no of solutions= 3

total ordered = 3*3*3=27

as 1,1,30 we can have only 3 cases and not 6 , so we subtract 3 and get

ordered +ve =24

ordered -ve

any 2 can be -ve in 3c2 = 3ways

remove all cases of 1,1,30 , so total cases = 21

3*21=63

for 1,1,30 either both the ones can be negative ,for this we will have 3 cases

and if one 1 and 30 are negative then we will get 6 cases

so total ordered -ve = 63+3+6 = 72

total ordered = 96

unordered +ve = 24/6 = 4

unordered -ve = 2+3*3 = 11

total unordered = 15

1CommentThe advanced level questions are good but the theory is not sufficient if you are a beginner .If your basics are good then you may go for it.And the solutions are only well explained for Level 1 and Level 2 problems and not for Level 3 problems .Hope this helps .
