XAT 2024 Formula Topics

XAT Formulas

Basic Mathematical Formulas


  • (a + b)² = (a² + b² + 2ab)
  • (a – b)² = (a² + b² – 2ab)
  • (a + b)(a – b) = (a² – b²)
  • (a + b)² = (a² + b² + 2ab)
  • (a³ – b³) = (a – b)(a² + ab + b²)
  • (a + b + c)² = a² + b² + c² + 2(ab + bc + ca)
  • (a³ + b³) = (a + b)(a² – ab + b²)
  • When a + b + c = 0, then a³ + b³ + c³ = 3abc
  • (a³ + b³ + c³ – 3abc) = (a + b + c)(a² + b² + c² – ab – bc – ac)
  • (a + b)n = an + (nC1)an-1b + (nC2)an-2b² + … + (nCn-1)abn-1 + bn

Number System


  • (1² + 2² + 3² + ….. + n²) = n ( n + 1 ) (2n + 1) / 6
  • 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + … + n = n(n + 1)/2
  • (1³ + 2³ + 3³ + ….. + n³) = (n(n + 1)/ 2)²
  • Sum of first n odd numbers = n²
  • Sum of first n even numbers = n (n + 1)

LCM and HCF


  • LCM × HCF = Product of the Numbers
  • LCM of Co-prime Numbers = Product Of The Numbers

Profit, Loss, and Discount


  • Profit % = Profit/(C P)×100
  • Profit/Gain = (S.P.) – (C.P.)
  • C P = 100/(100+gain %)×S P
  • S P = (100+gain % )/100 ×C P
  • Loss % = Loss/(C.P.)×100
  • Loss = (C.P.) – (S.P.)
  • C P = 100/(100-loss %)×S P
  • S P = (100-loss %)/100×C P

Percentages


  • Find what percentage of X is Y: Y/X x 100
  • Increase N by S% = N(1+S/100)
  • Decrease N by S% = N(1 - S/100)

Speed, Time, and Distance


  • Speed= Distance/ Time
  • Distance= Speed x Time
  • Time= Distance/ Time

Time and Work Formulas (Basic Formulas)


  • If X can do a piece of work in ‘n’ days, then X’s 1 day’s work = 1/n
  • If X’s 1 day’s work = is 1/n, then X can finish the work in n days.

Average Formula

  • Average= Sum of observations/ Number of observations

Simple and Compound Interest Formula

  • Simple Interest: P x i x n (P= Principle, i= interest rate and n= term of the loan)
  • Compound Interest:
  • Compound Interest = [P(1+i)n] - P
  • Compound Interest = P[(1+i)n-1]
