Rajdeep, it has come to my attention that you are aggressively @mentioning several members numerous times a day. Please refrain from doing so, especially if you notice that they have not responded to any of your past mentions.

In general, unless you have a strong reason, please refrain from @ mentioning any person more than once a day. If you continually bombard people with such requests, they will (similar to the boy who cried wolf) most likely start to ignore you.

@Vighnesh Raut The solution to your question $$\int{\frac{dx}{1 + \tan^{4}{x}}}$$ is given below.

Solution : $\int{\frac{dx}{1+ tan^4 {x}}} \\ \text{Substitute tan x = t . Then the integral will become } \\ \int{\frac{dt}{(1 + t^2)(1 + t^4 )}} \\ \text{ Separating using partial fractions we get} \\ \int{(\frac{1}{2(1 +t^2)} + \frac{2t - \sqrt{2}}{4\sqrt{2}(-t^2 + \sqrt{2}t - 1)} + \frac{2t + \sqrt{2}}{4\sqrt{2}(t^2 + \sqrt{2}t + 1)})} \\ \text{Integrating we get} \\ \frac{1}{2}\arctan{t} - \frac{1}{4\sqrt{2}}\log{(t^2 - \sqrt{2}t + 1)} + \frac{1}{4\sqrt{2}}\log{(t^2 + \sqrt{2}t + 1}) \\ \text{We can easily substitute back in t = tan x and then simplify.}$

Sorry for misprint here $$\phi = \varphi$$

Now If body is in equilibrium. Resultant = 0

So that means $$mg\sin{\theta} = T\cos{\phi}$$

Plugging in values and solving we get

$T = \frac{10 \times 9.8 \times \sin{45^{\circ}}}{\cos{25^{\circ}}}$ If Doubt comment otherwise reply that you understood.

Archit Boobna In your new question Be Careful.

To evaluate C can the integers be same.

Like-$$(-1)^{1000} = 1 \\ also \quad 1^{1000} = 1$$.

Do we have take both of them as different cases or same.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Read the question carefully. The values of $$n$$ are redundant. Only the integers which can be expressed as $$n^{100}~,~n\in \mathbb{Z}$$ are to be taken into consideration. You cannot express $$(-1)$$ as $$n^{100}$$ for any $$n\in \mathbb{Z}$$. Also, you count a single number once, so there are no different cases to begin with. You just consider the number of positive integers that satisfy the given conditions of C.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

@Prasun Biswas So you mean the value of C is $$\boxed{1}$$ I really do feel that the answer is wrong.

Also look at the other question . posted in this note

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Nope, there is nothing wrong with that problem. I can assure you that. It's a simple one though but it made me think a bit. It was a good problem.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Thanks @Prasun Biswas

- 3 years, 11 months ago

You're welcome. :)

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Prasun Biswas Could you solve the following question:

P is any point inside a triangle ABC. The perimeter of the triangle ABC is $$2s$$. Prove that $$s$$ < $$AP + BP + CP$$ < $$2s$$

Also could you give a solution for tanveen dhingra Problem Above

- 3 years, 11 months ago

The lower bound of the inequality can be proved easily by using the basic property of triangles that the sum of any $$2$$ sides is always greater than the third side and the upper bound is to proven using the following lemma.

Lemma: Whenever we have a point inside a triangle, the distance of it from a vertex is always less than any one of the sides of the triangle originating from that vertex.

Image

Given that $$AB+BC+AC=2s$$. Using the property specified in the beginning, we have,

$AP+BP\gt AB\quad,\quad AP+CP\gt AC\quad,\quad BP+CP\gt BC$

Adding the three inequalities, we get,

$2(AP+BP+CP)\gt (AB+BC+AC)=2s \implies AP+BP+CP\gt \dfrac{2s}{2}=s$

$\therefore AP+BP+CP\gt s\ldots (i)$

When $$P$$ is a point inside $$\Delta$$$$ABC$$, we always have,

$AP\lt AB~\lor~AP\lt AC \quad \land \quad BP\lt BC~\lor~BP\lt AB\quad \land \quad CP\lt AC~\lor~CP\lt BC$

Adding the three inequalities casewise, we have,

$AP+BP+CP\lt AB+BC+AC\quad \lor \quad AP+BP+CP\lt AC+AB+BC$

Note that both the cases imply the same thing which is,

$AP+BP+CP\lt AB+BC+AC=2s$

$\therefore AP+BP+CP\lt 2s\ldots (ii)$

From $$(i)$$ and $$(ii)$$, we have,

$s\lt AP+BP+CP\lt 2s$

P.S - I still cannot think of a rigorous proof of the lemma I stated though other than analytically verifying the validity of that lemma.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

@Prasun Biswas The Lower bound is easy.

I believe that the upper bound can only be prove by drawing a mirror image

Please also solve @tanveen dhingra Question

- 3 years, 11 months ago

I have updated the solution to include the proof of the upper bound.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

what is $$\land$$ and $$\lor$$

- 3 years, 11 months ago

$$\land$$ denotes the logical "AND" operator and $$\lor$$ denotes the logical "OR" operator.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Could you please solve @tanveen dhingra Question.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Well, you already gave him the link to the solution of his problem, didn't you?

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Is that solution the best and easiest.I don't think so.Could you please make it shoter

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Just Use Binomial

- 3 years, 11 months ago

It won't work.Already tried.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

$$x={ 2 }^{ 1990 }mod\quad 1990\\ x={ 1024 }^{ 199 }mod\quad 1990\\ x-1024=({ 1024 }^{ 199 }-1024)\quad mod\quad 1990\\ x-1024=1024({ 1024 }^{ 198 }-1)\quad mod\quad 1990\\ \\ To\quad find\quad it:-\\ 1024({ 1024 }^{ 198 }-1)=1990n+a\\ 512({ 1024 }^{ 198 }-1)=995n+\frac { a }{ 2 } \\ 512({ 2 }^{ 1980 }-1)=995n+\frac { a }{ 2 }$$

(Here "a" is $$1024({ 1024 }^{ 198 }-1)$$ mod 1990

Now we can easily factorize 2^1980-1 and we will see that it is a multiple of 995=5x199, so a=0.

So x-1024 is a multiple of 1990. So x mod 1990 is 1024

- 3 years, 11 months ago

@Archit Boobna How would factorization help?

$$2^{1980} - 1$$ = $$(2^{990}-1)(2^{990} + 1)$$ = $$(2^{495} - 1)(2^{495}+1)(2^{990} + 1)$$

How did this help? Even further cubic factorization isn't working. @Prasun Biswas @Calvin Lin

- 3 years, 11 months ago

But my approach is halfway to the solution

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Yes , But how to prove $$2^{1980} - 1$$ $$\mod{995}$$ = $$\boxed{0}$$

- 3 years, 11 months ago

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=Factorize+x%5E1980-1

- 3 years, 11 months ago

But during the exam we can't use wolfram alpha

- 3 years, 11 months ago

No! I mean to say that 2^1980-1 can be factorised... but we are just not getting how

- 3 years, 11 months ago

$2^{1980}-1\not \equiv 0 \pmod{1990}$

I checked using the Chinese Remainder Theorem. The result comes out to be $$2^{1980}\equiv 996 \pmod{1990}$$

- 3 years, 11 months ago

but the answer is coming right using this assumption

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Well, if the answer comes out correct, that doesn't necessarily mean that the process is correct too.

P.S - Check again. In his solution, he said that $$2^{1980}\equiv 1\pmod{995}$$. That doesn't necessarily mean that we'll also have $$2^{1980}\equiv 1\pmod{1990}$$.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

I said 2^1980-1 mod 995 =0

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Oh sorry. That was a typo on my part. :P

- 3 years, 11 months ago

By the way, $$2^{1980}\equiv 1\pmod{995}$$, so @Archit Boobna's method is correct (as far as I can see).

- 3 years, 11 months ago

So you mean $$2^{1980}$$ is a factor of 995

- 3 years, 11 months ago

I am trying to solve it

- 3 years, 11 months ago

By the way, i have another proof. If you will help me prove that 2^1980 mod 1990 =1 , then I can prove it

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Let me think about it.

The question is not of proof it is of finding the remainder

A square sheet of paper ABCD is so folded that B falls on the mid-point M of CD.Prove that the crease will divide BC in the ratio 3:5.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Well a neat diagram and simple geometry would do it.

Look at this diagram.

Yo Yo

Here $$AP$$ is the crease along which paper is to be folded.Hence $$M$$ becomes the reflection of $$B$$

Since $$M$$ is the reflection of $$B$$ hence $$BN=NM$$.

Also let side of square be $$x$$ then $$MC=\frac{x}{2}$$

Also $$tan(\theta)=\frac{1}{2},\Rightarrow sec(\theta)=\frac{\sqrt{5}}{2}$$

Now $$BM=\frac{\sqrt{5}x}{2}$$ (By applying pythagorean theorom in $$BMC$$)

Since $$N$$ is the mid-point of $$BM$$ hence $$BN=\frac{\sqrt{5}x}{4}$$

Finally in triangle $$BNP$$ by simple trignometry we have :

$$BNsec(\theta)=BP=\frac{\sqrt{5}x}{4} \times \frac{\sqrt{5}}{2} = \frac{5x}{8}$$

$$PC=BC-BP=\frac{3x}{8}$$

Finally we are getting $$PC : PB :: 3:5$$

Hence proved.

Yes, there are lots of wikis on the Modular Arithmetic. These are all listed under Number Theory - Modular Arithmetic.

Could you solve this :

Two boxes contain between them 65 balls of several different sizes. Each ball is white, black, red or yellow. If you take any five balls of the same colour, at least 2 of them will always be of the same size. Prove that there are at least 3 balls which lie in the same box, have the same colour and the same size.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

@Rajdeep Dhingra , Its not a good idea to ask problems for which no close form exist. This is quite famous, and called "Reciprocal Fibonacci Constant" . There is NO CLOSE form to this summation. You earlier asked , $$\zeta(3)$$, which also has no close form, inspite of knowing that. Trying to waste anyone time who is helping you is not a good thing.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

But earlier I had seen this in a problem which used this.

I don't remember the problems name (as i did it a month ago) but I remember the problem . Also there was no solution to it but had quite a many solvers.

The problem was $$2.2.2^{\frac{1}{2}}.2^{\frac{1}{3}}.2^{\frac{1}{5}}\dots \dots$$ here the power is fibonacci numbers. hence to evaluate this we needed "Reciprocal Fibonacci Constant".

Sorry @Ronak Agarwal I didn't know it.

P.S- $$\zeta{(3)}$$ was just a joke. Please don't take it seriously and please keep helping me Ronak agarwal. I won't reapeat the $$\zeta(3)$$ thing. Thank you for helping me now in the future.

I have a doubt that I will ask you later Ronak Agarwal. I have proceeded with the solution till some extent but could you help me out with it. Hopefully will post in 3-4 hours.

So that means $$F(n,m) = \frac{1}{2}B[\frac{1}{2}(n+1),\frac{1}{2}(m+1)]$$. Now what ?

You can also use the Rearrangement Inequality. That trivializes the problem.

Consider the following sequences: $$\{a,b,c,d\}$$ and $$\left \{\dfrac{1}{d},\dfrac{1}{c},\dfrac{1}{b},\dfrac{1}{a}\right \}$$ of positive reals and without loss of generality, assume $$a\geq b\geq c\geq d$$. Then, we also have $$\dfrac{1}{d}\geq \dfrac{1}{c}\geq \dfrac{1}{b}\geq \dfrac{1}{a}$$

Using the Rearrangement Inequality, we have,

$\text{Directed Sum} \ge \text{Random Sum} \ge \text{Reverse Sum}\\ \implies \frac{a}{d}+\frac{b}{c}+\frac{c}{b}+\frac{d}{a}\geq \frac{a}{b}+\frac{b}{c}+\frac{c}{d}+\frac{d}{a}\geq \frac{a}{a}+\frac{b}{b}+\frac{c}{c}+\frac{d}{d}=1+1+1+1=4$

$\therefore \frac{a}{b}+\frac{b}{c}+\frac{c}{d}+\frac{d}{a}\geq 4$

and equality holds iff $$a=b=c=d$$

- 3 years, 11 months ago

@Prasun Biswas Nice solution.

In this Rearrangement Inequality can we change the random sum any way we like ? Should it be the Product of the squence in any order?

Like in this case $$Directed Sum \ge \frac{a}{c} + \frac{b}{a} + \frac{d}{b} + \frac{c}{d} \ge Reverse Sum$$

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Yes, for the random sum, we choose any one of the permutations of the second sequence. There's a Brilliant wiki on the topic. You can read it if you want.

The sum is, $$x\equiv \displaystyle \sum_i a_iy_iz_i$$ where $$z_i\equiv y_i^{-1}\pmod{n_i}$$ for the $$i^{\textrm{th}}$$ congruence of the system and the other symbols have their usual meanings as given in that wiki.

Hi Guys, I read your conversation and was fascinated to see your knowledge?

Could you solve one of my questions? Ques1. Prove that $$n^{4}$$ + $$4^{n}$$ is composite for all integer value of $$n$$ $$\gt$$ $$1$$

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Interesting Question. On it.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

@PRIYANSHU MISHRA For all n $$\in$$ Even . It can be easily proved that it composite(As it is a multiple of $$2$$ ). For the odd I Have an approach but is not complete. Still working on that .

Here is my approach for odd.

Let the odd numbers be of the form 2n + 1 where n $$\in$$ Natural numbers. Then the question will change to

$$(2n + 1)^{4} \quad + \quad 4^{2n + 1}$$ $$\Rightarrow$$ $$16n^4 + 32n^3 + 24n^2 + 8n + 1 + 4^{2n+1}$$

4($$4n^4 + 8n^3 + 6n^2 + 2n + 4^{2n}$$) + 1 . Now If start inserting values into it then we'll see that for all n except 2 , it is divisible by 5 . Now we'll find last digit of this to prove it is divisible by 5. Last digit can be found out by doing modulo 10.So,

($$4n^4 + 8n^3 + 6n^2 + 2n + 4^{2n}$$) $$\mod{ 10 }$$ .

now the cyclicity is $$\boxed{10}$$ . So we find remainders for n = 1 to 10.

Here I am getting problems.Solving this would take time . Could you simplify the mod expression.@Calvin Lin @Satvik Golechha @Peter Taylor @Prasun Biswas @Ronak Agarwal Please help.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

That's a simple one : Put $$\displaystyle x=\sqrt{sin\theta}$$ to get :

$$\displaystyle I=\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \int { (2\sec ^{ 2 }{ \theta } -1)\sqrt { \csc { \theta } } d\theta }$$

$$\displaystyle I = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (\int { (2\sec ^{ 2 }{ \theta } \sqrt { \csc { \theta } } d\theta } -\int { \sqrt { \csc { \theta } } d\theta } )$$

Applying product rule to first integral we have :

$$\displaystyle u = \sqrt { \csc { \theta } } , v'=\sec ^{ 2 }{ \theta }$$

$$\displaystyle I = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (2\tan { \theta } \sqrt { \csc { \theta } } -\int { 2\tan { \theta } \frac { -\csc { \theta } \cot { \theta } }{ 2\sqrt { \csc { \theta } } } } -\int { \sqrt { \csc { \theta } } d\theta } )+C$$

$$\displaystyle I = \frac { 1 }{ 2 } (2\tan { \theta } \sqrt { \csc { \theta } } +\int { \sqrt { \csc { \theta } } d\theta } -\int { \sqrt { \csc { \theta } } d\theta } )+C$$

$$\displaystyle \Rightarrow I = \tan { \theta } \sqrt { \csc { \theta } } +C$$

Reverting back to our substitution we have :

$$I = \dfrac { x }{ \sqrt { 1-{ x }^{ 4 } } } +C$$

Today, I also found a new way. $\int{\frac{1+ x^4}{( 1 -x^4)^{3/2}}dx} \\ \text{Dividing the inner things by (x^2) we get} \\ \int{\frac{\frac{1 + x^4}{x^3}}{(\frac{ 1 - x^4}{x^2})^{3/2}}dx} \\ \int{\frac{\frac{1}{x^3} + x}{(\frac{1}{x^2} + x^2)^{3/2}}dx} \\ \text{Now we have a derivative, So we substitute the down expression. Integrating and substituting back we get} \\ \frac{1}{\sqrt{\frac{1}{x^2} - x^2}} + C \\ \frac{x}{\sqrt{1 - x^4}} + C$

Please ask Rahul Sir to solve this.$\lim _{x \rightarrow \infty}{\left( \frac{x!}{x^x} \right) ^{1/x}}$

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Will you please tell me how did you get thiscorrect?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

But the person who has posted it has written himself that this question is incorrect .Is the question correct?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Yes it is but you need to assume it in complex plane.

here is the solution:

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Yeah i did the same but i didn't want to waste my chance and points thats why i asked.Thanks.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

@Rajdeep Dhingra Can You please help me with this ?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Have you tried solving it ?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

I have a really low level of knowledge in Functions and all so can you please help me out? with this and the basics and all....

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Ok fine.......
Its gonna take time to type but if you have patience I will help you.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Should I tell you the next step ?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

yeah.. plzzz

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Ok Now the question says $\large f(1)=2 \\ \large f(2)=3 \\ \large f(3)=4 \\ \large f(4)=5 \\\large f(5)=6$
So for values up to 5 the function is just $$\large f(n) = n + 1$$
Now we can set up are polynomial
$\large f(x) = C(x - 1)(x - 2)(x - 3)(x - 4)(x - 5) + x + 1$
Now try the question. I am sure you'll be able to do it. If not comment.(I am going offline will be online in half an hour)

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Ohk... then why is the answer asked in the form of m/n?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Because the constant is in the form of $$\dfrac{a}{b}$$

- 3 years, 10 months ago

not getting it :( maybe I will be able to solve more of such problems after this one

- 3 years, 10 months ago

ok
Now we have to find $$C \text{ from } f(x)$$.
They have given us the value of the function at $$f(8)$$ which is $$f(8) = 8-1 = x-1$$.
So now we have $\large f(x) = C(x - 1)(x - 2)(x - 3)(x - 4)(x - 5) + x + 1 \\ \large f(8) = C(8-1)(8-2)(8-3)(8-4)(8-5) + 8 + 1 \\ \text{Plugging in value of the function at 8 , we get} \\ 7 = C\dfrac{7!}{2!} + 9 \\ \text{Finding value of C we get} \\ C = (-2)\dfrac{2!}{7!} \\ \text{Now our polynomial changes to n} \\ \large f(x) = (-2)(\dfrac{2!}{7!})(x - 1)(x - 2)(x - 3)(x - 4)(x - 5) + x +1 \\ \text{Plugging 9 we get} \\ \large f(9) = \dfrac{14}{3}$
Comment if doubt, otherwise reply that you understood. Here is a problem same as this . Try this to clear concepts

- 3 years, 10 months ago

how should I start on this one?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Done it ?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

on it .wait pls :)

- 3 years, 10 months ago

See any n degree polynomial can be expressed in the form $P(x) = C(x - a_1)(x - a_2)(x - a_3).........(x - a_n) + k$.
Try the problem now. If unable to solve I will help you.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Hint: Use the Remainder-Factor Theorem for polynomials.

Extra hint: Try forming a new polynomial whose roots are the given $$x$$'s.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Hey bro . Did you solve that probability problem I had asked ?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Nope, I got busy with some NT and inequality problems. I'll look into it later. I was actually gonna solve it in the afternoon but then I had to sleep since I stayed up late last night.

$\lim _{x \rightarrow \infty}{\left( \frac{x!}{x^x} \right) ^{1/x}}$

- 3 years, 10 months ago

That's an easy one. You simply need to take the limit as $$L$$ and then apply natural logarithm on both sides to get,

$\ln L=\lim_{x\to\infty}\frac{1}{x}\cdot \sum_{i=1}^x f\left(\frac{i}{x}\right)$

This is a Riemann sum and can be evaluated by using limit sum definition of definite integral with $$f(x)=\ln x$$. We proceed as follows:

$\ln L=\int\limits_0^1\ln x\,dx$

Using IBP, we have,

$\ln L=\left[x\ln x-x\right]_0^1\implies \ln L=(1\times \ln 1-1)-\lim_{x\to 0^+}(x\ln x-x)$

The limit $$\displaystyle\lim_{x\to 0^+}(x\ln x)$$ can be evaluated to be $$0$$ using L'Hopital's rule. Thus,

$\ln L=(0-1)-(0-0)=(-1)\implies \boxed{L=e^{-1}}$

You are watching four people play bridge, where a hand begins by dealing each player 13 cards.

a. After a hand is dealt, you ask a player, “Do you have at least one Ace?” She says, “Yes.” What is the probability that she’s holding more than one Ace?

b. On a later hand, you ask another player, “Do you have the Ace of Spades?” She says, “Yes.” What is the probability that she’s holding more than one Ace?

See when we apply bayes theorem I can't understand how to evaluate P(A) and P(B).The probabilities I asked you.So, instead just solve the whole question please.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

@Prasun Biswas @Rajdeep Dhingra help me in starting that question . Please help.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

@Prasun Biswas Help him. I am exhausted. Not because of you but other things. I typed almost 50 comments each no less than 200 - 300 words.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

rajdeep, I got my answer as 2013/2008 why did I go wrong?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

From the given fact that:

$$P(1)=P(2)=P(3)=P(4)=P(5)=1$$

$$\Rightarrow P(x) = A(x-1) (x-2) (x-3) (x-4) (x-5)+1$$

Therefore,

$$\dfrac {P(2015)-1}{P(2014)-1}$$

$$= \dfrac {A(2015-1) (2015-2) (2015-3) (2015-4) (2015-5)+1-1}{A(2014-1) (2014-2) (2014-3) (2014-4) (2014-5)+1-1}$$

$$= \dfrac {A(2014) (2013) (2012) (2011) (2010)}{A(2013) (2012) (2011) (2010) (2009)} = \dfrac {2014}{2009}$$

$$\Rightarrow a = 2014$$, $$b = 2009$$ and $$a+b = 2014+2009 = \boxed{4023}$$

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Hell man.... I got that as 4022 !!! Though I finally understood all this.... Thank you so much for your help @Rajdeep Dhingra :*

One last question, Is the polnomial always having +1 in the end?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

No

P.S - I will post 3 problems tomorrow on this. Then you can check your newly learnt skill. $$\ddot\smile$$

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Thanks!! In those problems can You add a solution to 1 problem which helps me to understand how the polynomial expansion will end i.e. with which constant?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Well your concepts about Polynomial are scattered. No problem, Well that happens when attain higher knowledge in an unappropiate order.Well there is no particular constant, it may be 0 also.
See , A polynomial is anything in the form $$a_0 x^n + a_1 x^{n-1} + ......... + a_{n-1} x + a_n$$.Provided that only $$a_0 \neq 0$$. Rest anything is possible.There no particular constant.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Where can I read more about this?? Is there a brilliant wiki? or something like aops or wolfram|alpha?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Well the brilliant wiki is empty. I learnt it from class 9 NCERT.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

k.. I have that!! Which Chapter?

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Sorry class 10th. Here's the link.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Hahaha.. I truly understood how exhausted u are... This is @Chew-Seong Cheong Sir's solution... XD

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Well yes, I didn't want to type this whole stuff out. So I did copy his.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Also why do you want to become a mod ? Just curious .

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Well I wanted to become one since I came to know about it. I thought it was cool. Well know I have changed my mind(Looking at people like you and megh choksi).
P.S - If I get a request to become one well I won't deny it. $$\ddot\smile$$

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Frankly speaking , Megh has a better chance of becoming a mod . Look at the number of his followers !

- 3 years, 9 months ago

Yes, But I think you'll also be chosen if megh is.

- 3 years, 9 months ago

Really ? We'll see .

- 3 years, 9 months ago

Yes

Could you help the guy out who posted a question on the RMO/INMO board. The $$\omega$$ one.

- 3 years, 9 months ago

@Azhaghu Roopesh M , You can Solve the problem now... I have reposted it

- 3 years, 10 months ago

It was easy but good. When I tried the same problem with the wrong answer I wondered where had I went wrong.I thought of disputing it but didn't do it as the changed problem had come.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Yeah! sorry for the inconvenience caused.

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Guys I have a problem in questions like this one.

If $$\displaystyle f \left( \dfrac{x+y}{2} \right) = \dfrac{f(x) + f(y)}{2}.$$
$$\text{Find } f(2) \text{ given } f(0) = 1 \text{ and } f'(0) = -1.$$

Also give me links to many such problems so I can practice them. Any book or wiki or PDF also will work.

@Rajdeep Dhingra Hi Rajdeep Bhaiya !

This year I am bracing up for my NSEJS preparation, and recently I had a look over your personal tips for the exam. I saw some pics that you uploaded, wherein you said they contained the Physics IJSO syllabus and were taken from a "blog". If possible, can you please provide the link for the blog ? Also, are there some other blogs/websites related to IJSO preparation ?

All of them are removed now. They used to be maintained by Resonance.

- 10 months, 1 week ago

Oh ok, thank you so much !

- 10 months, 1 week ago

You can go to Here. Many people preparing for IJSO are there.

Hi Rajdeep Bhaiya !

I had a question - is learning calculus preferable and advantageous for NSEJS and its further stages ? If yes, then how and to what extent ?

Devanshi

- 10 months ago

Just very basic differentiation and integration in class 11th NCERT of Physics.

- 10 months ago

Shall surely check it out. Thank you so much !

- 10 months ago

I had a doubt regarding chemistry.

What, according to your personal opinion, is something better to do - Practicing whole of chemistry from Raymond Chang + Coursera, or studying Class 8,9,10,11,12 NCERT, and solve BMA and Pearson Trishna Chemistry for NSEJS and further stages ?

- 10 months ago

11th + 12th NCERT has inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry also which don't come.(except their introductory chapter).I suggest you do Chang+Coursera and do the questions of NCERT of that chapter.

- 10 months ago

Oh ok, thank you so much for your guidance bhaiya !

- 10 months ago

Rajdeep Bhaiya, generally for almost every exam it is advised to read NCERT religiously and thoroughly - as NSEJS is more about problem - solving (as per my observation), should one focus more on reading NCERT thoroughly or rather solving more and more problems ?

Thank you so much !

- 9 months, 3 weeks ago
