Hi ppl
I've been part of this forum for a loong time..but havent been posting ...guess its time i start..
i'm lakshmi narayan (ppl, call me LUCKY), Finished my B.E in Elec Engg...
Tried CAT 2003(97 %ile) ...didnt even get a call (prob 'coz of my VA..meagre 73%ile)...
hoping to crack CAT this time...
I'm now sitting at home and preparing for CAT (Basially sleeping a lot and waiting for my offer letter from WIPRO..will probably be joining in august)

I guess i'm quiet okay with QA and DI(need to regain my speed though in DI)....
but i'm finding VAreally difficult.....
I stay in triplicane in chennai....if therz anyone nearby who'll be able to form a study grp it'll be nice.....actually i'm finding it too boring and waste of time sitting home and studying alone....and again i have no new material..ive been borrowing da material from my frns though

As far as da contribution to da grps...i'm hoping to contribute regularly to this GRP..
this forum is GR8..keep the good work going ppl..

This is my first contri.. I actually derived this formula while whiling away my time ...here it goes...

To find the angle bvetween the hands of a clock....
if "H" is the hours and "M" is the mins...then angle can be directly obtained by
ANGLE = 30H - (11/2)M
For example...when da time is 9:30...angle is
30*9 - (11/2)*30 = 270-165=105 degrees..

hope dat was useful.....

if u ppl fiondany interesting probs also keep posting dem..will try to find solns for dat..
bye
Lucky

PS: moderators..pls forgive me if ive not used the right thread...actually i didnt have time to post all this info in diff threads...i'll follow the norms properly from nxt time
