Important Formulas in QA

1. f an equation (i.e. f(x) = 0) contains all positive co-efficients of any powers of x, it has no

positive roots. Eg: x3+3x2+2x+6=0 has no positive roots

2. For an equation, if all the even powers of x have same sign coefficients and all the odd

powers of x have the opposite sign coefficients, then it has no negative roots.

3. 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 neg

Important Formulas in QA

1.

f an equation (i.e. f(x) = 0) contains all positive co-efficients of any powers of x, it has nopositive roots.

Eg: x

3

+3x

2

+2x+6=0 has no positive roots

2.

For an equation, if all the even powers of x have same sign coefficients and all the oddpowers of x have the opposite sign coefficients, then it has no negative roots.

3.

For an equation f(x)=0 , the maximum number of positive roots it can have is the numberof sign changes in f(x) ; and the maximum number of negative roots it can have is thenumber of sign changes in f(-x)

4.

Complex roots occur in pairs, hence if one of the roots of an equation is 2+3i, anotherhas to be 2-3i and if there are three possible roots of the equation, we can conclude thatthe last root is real. This real root could be found out by finding the sum of the roots of theequation and subtracting (2+3i)+(2-3i)=4 from that sum.

5.

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 bi-quadratic 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

6.

If an equation f(x)= 0 has only odd powers of x and all these have the same signcoefficients or if f(x) = 0 has only odd powers of x and all these have the same signcoefficients, then the equation has no real roots in each case (except for x=0 in thesecond case)

7.

Consider the two equations

a

1

x+b

1

y=c

1

a

2

x+b

2

y=c

2

Then,

If a

1

/a

2

= b

1

/b

2

= c

1

/c

2

, then we have infinite solutions for these equations.

If a

1

/a

2

= b

1

/b

2

<> c

1

/c

2

, then we have no solution.

If a

1

/a

2

<> b

1

/b

2

, then we have a unique solution.

8.

Roots of x

2

+ x + 1=0 are 1, w, w

2

where 1 + w + w

2

=0 and w

3

=1

9.

|a| + |b| = |a + b| if a*b>=0else, |a| + |b| >= |a + b|

10.

The equation ax

2

+bx+c=0 will have max. value when a<0 and min. value when a>0. Themax. or min. value is given by (4ac-b

2

)/4a and will occur at x = -b/2a

11.

If for two numbers x + y=k (a constant), then their PRODUCT isMAXIMUM if x=y (=k/2). The maximum product is then (k

2

)/4.

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

12.

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

13.

For any 2 numbers a, b where a>b

a>AM>GM>HM>b (where AM, GM ,HM stand for arithmetic, geometric ,harmonic means respectively)

(GM)^2 = AM * HM

14.

For three positive numbers a, b, c

(a + b + c) * (1/a + 1/b + 1/c)>=9

15.

For any positive integer n

2<= (1 + 1/n)^n <=3

16.

a

2

+ b

2

+ c

2

>= ab + bc + caIf a=b=c, then the case of equality holds good.

17.

a

4

+ b

4

+ c

4

+ d

4

>= 4abcd (Equality arises when a=b=c=d=1)

18.

(n!)

2

> n

n

19.

If a + b + c + d=constant, then the product a^p * b^q * c^r * d^s will be maximum if a/p =b/q = c/r = d/s

20.

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

21.

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)
