Then Financial Engineering is definitely NOT for you.

You can't be a Quant if you don't love programming, and you can't be anywhere around a Trading Desk without strong mathematical aptitude or strong computer programming skills.

Level 1 is basics, no depth but they will cover nearly everything related to investments and markets. Although, Level 1 will give more investments related knowledge than MBA Finance, but don't expect much opportunities after just Level 1 unless you are a CA. Only thing in detail here is accountin...

1) Center of the bigger circle will be centroid of triangle formed by centers of other 3 circles, so distance of centroid to one of vertex plus 1 will be radius of that circle, which will be (1+sqrt(13)/3), calculate the area.

2) If you want area common 4 circles drawn at each vertex of square...

Well, first first label the circles as A,B,C in order of left to right, label intersection of B and C as M and N, and center of circle C as X.

Area under part of circle C1MXC1 = pi*r^2 /6 (since the arc divides circle in 1/6 pie) = Y

area of equilateral triangle C1MX = sqrt(3)* r^2 / 4 = Z....
