Quant Shortcuts

Finding number of Factors

To find the number of factors of a given number, express the number as a product of powers of prime numbers.
In this case, 48 can be written as 16 * 3 = (24 * 3)

Now, increment the power of each of the prime numbers by 1 and multiply the result.

In this case it will be (4 + 1)*(1 + 1) = 5 * 2 = 10 (the power of 2 is 4 and the power of 3 is 1)

Therefore, there will 10 factors including 1 and 48. Excluding, these two numbers, you will have 10 – 2 = 8 factors.

Sum of n natural numbers

-> The sum of first n natural numbers = n (n+1)/2

-> The sum of squares of first n natural numbers is n (n+1)(2n+1)/6

-> The sum of first n even numbers= n (n+1)

-> The sum of first n odd numbers= n^2

Finding Squares of numbers

To find the squares of numbers near numbers of which squares are known

To find 41^2 , Add 40+41 to 1600 =1681

To find 59^2 , Subtract 60^2-(60+59) =3481

Finding number of Positive Roots

If an equation (i:e f(x)=0 ) contains all positive co-efficient of any powers of x , it has no positive roots then.

Eg: x^4+3x^2+2x+6=0 has no positive roots .

Finding number of Imaginary Roots

For an equation f(x)=0 , the maximum number of positive roots it can have is the number of sign changes in f(x) ; and the maximum number of negative roots it can have is the number of sign changes in f(-x) .
Hence the remaining are the minimum number of imaginary roots of the equation(Since we also know that the index of the maximum power of x is the number of roots of an equation.)

Reciprocal Roots

The equation whose roots are the reciprocal of the roots of the equation ax^2+bx+c is cx^2+bx+a


Roots of x^2+x+1=0 are 1,w,w^2 where 1+w+w^2=0 and w^3=1

Finding Sum of the roots

For a cubic equation ax^3+bx^2+cx+d=o sum of the roots = - b/a sum of the product of the roots taken two at a time = c/a product of the roots = -d/a

For a biquadratic equation ax^4+bx^3+cx^2+dx+e = 0 sum of the roots = - b/a sum of the product of the roots taken three at a time = c/a sum of the product of the roots taken two at a time = -d/a product of the roots = e/a


-> If for two numbers x+y=k(=constant), then their PRODUCT is MAXIMUM if x=y(=k/2). The maximum product is then (k^2)/4

-> If for two numbers x*y=k(=constant), then their SUM is MINIMUM if x=y(=root(k)). The minimum sum is then 2*root(k) .


-> x + y >= x+y ( stands for absolute value or modulus ) (Useful in solving some inequations)

-> a+b=a+b if a*b>=0 else a+b >= a+b

-> 2<= (1+1/n)^n <=3 -> (1+x)^n ~ (1+nx) if x<<<1> When you multiply each side of the inequality by -1, you have to reverse the direction of the inequality.

Product Vs HCF-LCM 

Product of any two numbers = Product of their HCF and LCM . Hence product of two numbers = LCM of the numbers if they are prime to each other


For any 2 numbers a>b a>AM>GM>HM>b (where AM, GM ,HM stand for arithmetic, geometric , harmonic menasa respectively) (GM)^2 = AM * HM

Sum of Exterior Angles

For any regular polygon , the sum of the exterior angles is equal to 360 degrees hence measure of any external angle is equal to 360/n. ( where n is the number of sides)

For any regular polygon , the sum of interior angles =(n-2)180 degrees

So measure of one angle in



Problems on clocks

Problems on clocks can be tackled as assuming two runners going round a circle , one 12 times as fast as the other . That is , the minute hand describes 6 degrees /minute the hour hand describes 1/2 degrees /minute . Thus the minute hand describes 5(1/2) degrees more than the hour hand per minute .
The hour and the minute hand meet each other after every 65(5/11) minutes after being together at midnight. (This can be derived from the above) .

Given the coordinates (a,b) (c,d) (e,f) (g,h) of a parallelogram , the coordinates of the meeting point of the diagonals can be found out by solving for [(a+e)/2,(b+f)/2] =[ (c+g)/2 , (d+h)/2]


If a1/b1 = a2/b2 = a3/b3 = .............. , then each ratio is equal to (k1*a1+ k2*a2+k3*a3+..............) / (k1*b1+ k2*b2+k3*b3+..............) , which is also equal to (a1+a2+a3+............./b1+b2+b3+..........)

Finding multiples

x^n -a^n = (x-a)(x^(n-1) + x^(n-2) + .......+ a^(n-1) ) ......Very useful for finding multiples .For example (17-14=3 will be a multiple of 17^3 - 14^3)

e^x = 1 + (x)/1! + (x^2)/2! + (x^3)/3! + infinity 2 <>GP
-> In a GP the product of any two terms equidistant from a term is always constant .

-> The sum of an infinite GP = a/(1-r) , where a and r are resp. the first term and common ratio of the GP .


If Q be the volume of a vessel q qty of a mixture of water and wine be removed each time from a mixture n be the number of times this operation be done and A be the final qty of wine in the mixture then ,
A/Q = (1-q/Q)^n

Some Pythagorean triplets:

8,15,17--------(8^2 / 2 = 15+17 )
12,35,37-------(12^2 / 2 = 35+37)
16,63,65-------(16^2 /2 = 63+65)

Appolonius theorem

Appolonius theorem could be applied to the 4 triangles formed in a parallelogram.

Any function of the type y=f(x)=(ax-b)/(bx-a) is always of the form x=f(y) .

Finding Squares

To find the squares of numbers from 50 to 59

For 5X^2 , use the formulae

(5X)^2 = 5^2 +X / X^2

Eg ; (55^2) = 25+5 /25
(56)^2 = 25+6/36
(59)^2 = 25+9/81

Successive Discounts

Formula for successive discounts
This is used for succesive discounts types of 1999 population increses by 10% and then in 2000 by 5% so the population in 2000 now is 10+5+(50/100)=+15.5% more that was in 1999 and if there is a decrease then it will be preceeded by a -ve sign and likewise.

Rules of Logarithms:
-> loga(M)=y if and only if M=ay

-> loga(MN)=loga(M)+loga(N)

-> loga(M/N)=loga(M)-loga(N)

-> loga(Mp)=p*loga(M)

-> loga(1)=0-> loga(ap)=p

-> log(1+x) = x - (x^2)/2 + (x^3)/3 - (x^4)/4 infinity [ Note the alternating sign . .Also note that the ogarithm is with respect to base e ]

Divisibility rules

Best Blogger Tips

Divisibility rules:
-> A number is divisible by 2 if and only if the last digit is divisible by 2.

-> A number is divisible by 3 if and only if the sum of the digits is divisible by 3.

-> A number is divisible by 4 if and only if the last 2 digits is a number divisible by 4.

-> A number is divisible by 5 if and only if the last digit is divisible by 5.

-> A number is divisible by 6 if and only if it is divisible by 2 and 3.

-> A number is divisible by 8 if and only if the last 3 digits is a number divisible by 8.

-> A number is divisible by 9 if and only if the sum of the digits is divisible by 9.

-> A number is divisible by 10n if and only if the number ends in n zeros.

-> A number is divisible by 11 iff the sum of every other digit minus the sum of the rest of the digits is divisible by 11.

-> To find out if a number is divisible by seven, take the last digit, double it, and subtract it from the rest of the number.Example: If you had 203, you would double the last digit to get six, and subtract that from 20 to get 14. If you get an answer divisible by 7 (including zero), then the original number is divisible by seven. If you don't know the new number's divisibility, you can apply the rule again.

-> If n is even , n(n+1)(n+2) is divisible by 24

Developing ASP Components, Second Edition

Best Blogger Tips

Publisher:O'Reilly Media

ISBN 10:1-56592-750-8
Pages: 831
Size: 8.73 MB

Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) continue to grow in popularity with web developers--especially as web applications replace web pages. However, the techniques and pitfalls of developing ASP components are not well-documented. The second edition of Developing ASP Components has the information and real-world examples you need to create custom ASP components.
Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) technology has become wildly popular with web developers. However, the techniques for developing custom ASP components, not to mention the inevitable snags and pitfalls, are not well documented. What's more, the successful ASP component developer must be a jack-of-all-trades, with some knowledge of COM and COM+, threading models, and the ASP object model, as well as a mastery of one or more language tools and development environments.
That's where Developing ASP Components, 2nd Edition, comes in. Its first section explores the topics everyone needs to know to develop effective ASP components:
  • Configuring the ASP development environment.
  • ASP components and the Component Object Model (COM).
  • ASP components and threading models.
  • ASP components and Component Services, which provide a variety of services to ASP components.
  • The objects, properties, methods, and events available in the ASP object model.
ASP components are language independent, and developers increasingly tend to use more than a single language tool. Thus the remainder of the book focuses on ASP component development using one of two major development tools--Microsoft Visual Basic and Microsoft Visual C++ (with the ActiveX Template Library)--along with a number of other languages, such as Perl and Delphi. Each section focuses on the issues that concern the ASP component developer using that particular development environment. These issues include:
  • Accessing ASP's intrinsic objects.
  • Accessing data using ADO.
  • Creating n-tier web applications with VB.
  • Handling persistence using MFC along with Visual C++/ATL.
It's this strong focus on two major development environments, along with a thorough grounding in essential ASP topics, that makes Developing ASP Components the definitive resource for the ASP application and component developer.

Its main goal is to show that the approach to equilibrium - with equilibrium characterized by maximum ignorance about the open system of interest - neither requires that many particles nor is the precise way of partitioning, relevant for the salient features of equilibrium and equilibration. Furthermore, the text depicts that it is indeed quantum effects that are at work in bringing about thermodynamic behavior of modest-sized open systems, thus making Von Neumann’s concept of entropy appear much more widely useful than sometimes feared, far beyond truly macroscopic systems in equilibrium.

This significantly revised and expanded second edition pays more attention to the growing number of applications, especially non-equilibrium phenomena and thermodynamic processes of the nano-domain. In addition, to improve readability and reduce unneeded technical details, a large portion of this book has been thoroughly rewritten.
