CAT 2014 Exam day and slot discussionDiscuss about your date of exam, slot and centre in this thread.
I dont get it!
They have given me Lucknow which was my 3rd preference and date as 22nd November. I filled the early, I dont know if that matters but I do want to know what did I do wrong to be not given a slot in my first two preferred cities.
dude, the slot has been given on a random basis. not first come - first serve. i have got a centre which is on the outskirts of bangalore, 40 kms from my house, where as there were a couple of venues near to my house.
I dont think the cities are given on random basis. Maybe there were too many ppl who applied for the same centre Aditya. Whereas, the exam locations within cities are totally random.
@ashishsingh_courage yeah.. thats what i meant. i got my 1st preference city. but the centre is too far from my home. when i had registered for CAT in the first week after it started, while ppl who registered late got centres nearer to there house.
.Can someone help me out with the following problems with some clear and simple approcah to these qustions 4 balls ar...
How many circles can be determined out of 12 points, if 8 out of these 12 are collinear? pls explain with sol.
answer is "cannot be determined", right? a circle passes through 3 non collinear points, but can't be sure of whether it will pass through other points.
actually...the anwser is possible .. a cicle passes through 3 noncolliner points is 12c3 subtract 8c3 i.e.12c3-8c3=164 coz out of 12 points 8 points are colllinear they cant make a circle..
@123asd: Your answer will be true if it is mentioned that any particular circle passing through 3 distinct points will not pass through any other point, but it's not mentioned here. Just draw and see that any circle might pass through not just 3 points but a 4th point, in that case you have counted same circles as 2 nos.

In such type of problems, when the formula to calculate time for nth meet = { (2n-1) * x} / (a+b), can be applied.??
x is the distance b/w P and Q. And a and b are the speeds of A and B respectively.

I am getting the side of bigger equilateral triangle = 2r/rt(3) + 4r where r is the radius of the circle. where am i making the mistake?
@stubbornlydumbo : the side of bigger triangle will be 2r+2r*rt(3)...it will be equal to the sum of twice the radius and twice the tangent length...
@amodanand06 How did you find the tangent length?
@stubbornlydumbo :actually i joined the corners of smaller equilateral triangle with the corresponding corners of the bigger triangle...not the two triangles made by the two tangents and the side joining the vertex will be congruent by SAS...hence this line segment will bisect the angle making itt 30 degress each...hence in the right triangle the length of each tangent wud be rt(3) times radius..
