Similarly, to claim that cosmetic surgery and reproductive genetics existed in the ancient times in India, as done by Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently in Mumbai, is too far-fetched. Like was the case with medicinal study as discussed earlier, of course there might be some notion as to how to preserve beauty, what form of beauty is desirable and how to achieve that; or what is the best way to ensure, say, a safe and healthy delivery of a child

Quant Concepts thread for CAT 2014

Hey puys, As we all are geared up to prepare ALL NEW CAT 2014, let us refresh our quant concepts bit by bit. All we n...

Concept: Number of ways a number N can be written as product of three numbers:

Let N= 360 = 2^3*3^2*5 =a^x*b^y*c^z

Now the primes 2,3,5 can be anyway arranged among a,b,c such that power of each primes remains same.

So for 2^3, x+y+z=3 => 5c2 
For 3^2, x+y+z=2, => 4c2
For 5, x+y+z=1, => 3c2

So total ordered solutions => 5c2*4c2*3c2= 10*6*3=180

Unordered: Here there are three possible triplets abc ie all distinct, which is arranged in 3! Ways, aab which is arranged in 3!/2=3 ways and aaa which is arranged in only 1 way in its Ordered solution. In case of unordered we just write those repeated cases in only 1 way

for ex (123),(231),(312),(321),(132),(213) is 6 ways in ordered while its only 1 triplet for unordered set.

So how to convert into unordered: From total, remove aab and aaa type if they are present. Now we are left with ordered distinct triplets. Which can be converted into unordered by dividing by 3! And then just add aab and aaa case

So as for 360=2^3*3^2*5, we got 180 as total, 
aab types : (1,1,N, ),(2,2,new), (3,3,n),(6,6,n). Total 4 which are all arranged in 3 ways. So 3*4=12

aaa type : not possible.

Unordered => (180-3*4)/3!+4= 32.

Some amount was lent at 6% p.a Simple Interest. After 1 year, Rs 6800 is repaid and the rest of the amt. is repaid at 5% p.a. If the 2nd year's interest is 11/20 of the first year's interest, find the amount of money that was lent out initially ?

Although I have the solution with me which goes as follows: Let principal be P Interest for 1st year= p*6/100. After 1 year, new amount = p+6p/100-6800 Interest on it for 1 year= (1.06p-6800)*5/100 And the rest is pretty easy....

My doubt is why did we add first year's interest while calculating the principal money for the 2nd year (since we are dealing with S.I and not C.I) , i.e. why did we add 6p/100 in 2nd year's principal ? Shouldn't the principal for 2nd year be just p-6800 ??
