MOCK TEST

FOR — ByAlokkumar. B.Tech, IITKanpur The Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Kolkata, is considered as one of the foremost centres in the world for training and research in statistics and the related sciences. The B.Stat (Hons) degree program, the flagship programme of the institute, offers comprehensive instruction in the theory, method and application of statistics, in addition to several areas of Mathematics and some basic areas of computer science. Each candidate applying for admission to this programme has to take a selection test comprising Objective type and Short-answer type questions in mathematics at the Higher Secondary level (10 + 2 year's programme). The selection tests consists of (1) A multiple choice type test having about 30 questions, and (2) A short-answer type test having about 10 questions. Questions will be set on the following and related topics. Algebra : Sets, operations on sets, prime numbers, factorization of integers and divisibility, rational and irrational numbers, permutations and combinations, binomial theorem, logarithms, theory of quadratic equations, polynomial and remainder theorem, arithmetic and geometric progressions, inequalities involving A.M., G.M., and H.M., complex numbers. Geometry : Plane geometry of class X level. Geometry of 2 dimensions with cartesian and polar co-ordinates. Concept of a locus, equation of a line, angle between two lines, distance from a point to a line. Areas of a triangle, equations of a circle, parabola, ellipse and hyperbola and equations of their tangents and normals, mensuration. Trigonometry : Measures of angles, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, trigonometric identities including addition formulae, solutions of trigonometric equations. Properties of triangles, heights and distances. Calculus : Functions, one-one functions, onto functions, limits and continuity, derivatives and methods of differentiation, slope and curve, tangents and normals, maxima and minima, use of calculus in sketching graph of functions, methods of integration, definite and indefinite integrals, evaluation of area using integrals. Logical Reasoning : Consistency of statements. In response to growing demand from students preparing for the ISI, we bring to you the first Mock ISI paper, which closely simulates the real exam. There is more to follow in the coming months. MULTIPLE CHOICE TEST 1.

1 = 1_J_=12 = 1Vl69 13 13 9. (a) : For n = 3, the numbers «, « + 4, w + 14 yield 3, 7, 17 and they are all prime. We claim that for no other value of n are n, n + 4, n + 14 all prime. Recall that any prime p > 5 can be written in the form 6k ±l,k>l. When n = 6k + 1 n, n + 4, n + 14 = 6k + 1, 6k + 5, 6k + 15, of which 6k + 15 = 3(2k + 5) is composite. When n = 6k - 1 n, n + 4, n + 14 = 6k- 1, 6k- 3, 6k- 13, of which 6k - 3 = 3(2k - 1) is composite. Hence only for n = 3 are the numbers n, n + 4, n + 14 all prime. 10. (b) : The idea behind the solution is to prove that at least one factor in the product is even. Of the numbers 1, 2, 3, 169, exactly 85 are odd. Again as the ajs consist of the numbers from 1 to 169 because a's are simply a permutation of 1,2, 3,.... 169, we have among a!s also 85 odd numbers. Both the sets {1,2, , 169} and { a v a 2 , . . . , a 168 } have together 170 odd numbers. Thus among the 169 factors (a, - 1), (a 2 - 2), (a 3 - 3), ( a m - 169) We have 170 odd numbers. Accordingly some factor say ak - k has both the numbers odd implying ak - k is even and so is the entire product. 11. (d) : Write 1234 in base 7 1234 = 3 x 343 + 4 x 49 + 7 + 2

Showing that p is composite too. 13. (d) : Look at the equation (x2 + 3x + 4)2 + 3(x2 + 3x + 4) + 4=x for a while and your powers of observation tell you that it can be written as f ( f (x)) = x ! where f ( x ) = x2 + 3x + 4 consider the equation f ( x ) = x, i.e. x2 + 3x + 4 = x => x2 + 2x +4 = 0 D= 22-4X4<O Showing that f ( x ) = x has no real solutions. So the binomial f ( x ) - x is always +ve or always -ve. Assume f ( x ) -x > 0 v x e R. i.e. f ( x ) > x \/ x e R. Setting/(x) in place of x, as f ( x ) eR, we have / i f (•*)) > f(x)> x, from the above equation establishing that fif(x))>x Thus when f ( x ) = x has no real solution, / ( f (x)) = x doesn't have either. 14. (c) : We embed the problem in a more general one and look at the expression. f(h) = h2 + (h+ 1)2 + {h(h+ l)}2 = h2 + h2 + 2h + 1 + h2 (h2 + 2h + 1)

(d) : Let n = (a m am_x a,-a0) 10 where a0, av am are digits of positive integer n be the decimal representation of n. n-Sn = (am • 10™ + a m _, (10—' + .... + • 10 + a0) -iam+am-, + .... + a , + a 0 ) = am (10"' - 1) + «ra_, (10— - 1)+..+£7,(10-1).... (1) As every number of the form 10* - 1 is divisible by 10 - 1 (=9), we conclude from (1) that n - Sn is divisible by 9. But n - Sn is given to be 1234 which is not divisible by 9. Hence no such n exists. 16. (a) : We establish that the sequence can't have more than 17 terms. Assume to the contrary that the sequence has more than 17 terms. Consider the first 18 terms. al + a2 + a3 + aA + a5 + a6 > 0 a2 + a3 + + a7 > 0 ,3+ai4+ + «I8>0 Adding coloumnwise (a, + a2 + ... + a | 3 ) + (a2 + ... + a, 4 ) + ... .... (a6 + ... + a 18 ) > 0 But since the sum of every 13 consecutive terms is negative, the sum on the left can't be positive. Impossible. Hence the sequence can have at the most 17 terms. 17. (c) : Let 2 4 + 2 7 + 2" = m2, m being an integer => 16+ 128 + 2" = m2 => 2" = m2 - 144 = (/w — 12) (m + 12) From the above it follows that m - 12 and m + 12 are both powers of 2. A1SO(/M+ 1 2 ) - ( M - 12) = 24. So the problem amounts to finding two powers of 2 whose difference is 24. Observe 2' = 2, 2 2 = 4, 23 = 8, 2 4 = 16, 2 s = 32, 2 6 = 64, 27 = 128 We have 2 5 - 2 3 = 24 and as 2" grows rapidly, we can't

a

have a pair other than (2 5 /2 3 ) having a difference of 24. Consequently /« - 12 = 8 and m + 12 = 32 giving w = 20 and 2" = 32 x 8 = 250 = 2 s n = 8. Accordingly there is just one value of n that makes 24 + 27 + 2" a perfect square. 18. (b) : As 8 doesn't appear in 1000, we have to count the number of times 8 occurs when we list the integers from 1 to 999. Now any number from 1 to 999 can be thought of as axa2a3 where 0 < a,, a 2 , a3 < 9. For example the numbers 81 and 4 will be written as 081 and 004 respectively in this system of representation. Let us first count the numbers in which 8 occurs exactly once. Since 8 can occur in any of the places, we have three ways for it corresponding to every occurrence of 8, other two places can be filled with the remaining numbers in 8 ways each. So number of such type of numbers = 3 x 9 x 9 = 243. Again 8 can occur in exactly two places in 3 c 2 = 3 ways. The remaining place can be filled in 9 ways. So there are 27 (= 9 x 3) such numbers. Finally, 8 can occur in all three places in just one way, viz 888. Number of times 8 occurs in all the numbers from 1 to 1000=243 + 2 x 27 + 3 x l = 243 + 54 + 3 = 300 19. (a) : First of all observe that the function is defined only when 4 - x2 > 0 => x2 < 4 => \x\ < 2. Denoting V 4 - x by t, we have t e [0, 2] Note that t has to be positive. so

The problem of finding the extreme values of f ( x ) amounts to finding the extreme values of g(l) where Sit) = (3 - t)2 + (1 + t)3 for the closed interval [0, 2] g(t) = -2(3 - f ) + 3(1 + 2t + t2) = 3/2 + 8/ - 3 = (/ + 3 ) ( 3 / . - l ) For extreme values g'{t) = 0 => (/ + 3) (3/ - 1) = 0 I 3 Also g"(t) = 6t + 8 = 2(3/ + 4) g"(-3) = - 10 < 0 = - 3 is a point of maxima. = 10 > 0 / = -j is a point of minima. g(t). 63 But / = - 3 is not in the domain of • /=-3

Hence the greatest value on the closed interval [0, 2] is g(2) = 28 256 and the least value is g 27 256 _500 Difference between extreme values = 28 - : 27 27 20. (a) Our first reaction on seeing the problem is to w r i t e / ( x ) a s / ( x ) = x4 + atx3 + a^c2 + a3x + a4 and then attempt to find the constants with the help of f (1),/(2) etc. This idea, beside being unattractive, can't be put to use when the number of unknowns increases. Instead we construct an auxiliary function. g(x) =f(x) - 2x So that g(l) = / ( l ) - 2 = 0 Similarly g(2) = g( 3) = 0 As g(x) is a polynomial of degree 4 having 1, 2, 3 as its three zeros. Assume the fourth zero to be a . Then we can write g(x) = (x - 1) (x - 2) (x - 3) (x - a) =>/(*) - 2x = (x - 1) (x - 2) (x - 3) (x - ct) Let x = 10 and - 6 successively to obtain /(10)-20 = 9 x 8 x 7(10-a) / ( - 6 ) + 12 = (—7)(—8)(—9)(—6 - a ) = 9 x 8 x 7 (6 + a ) Adding/(10) + f(-6) - 8 = 9 x 8 x 7 x. 16 = 8064 . - . / ( 1 0 ) + / ( - 6 ) = 8072. 21.

let's play by the rule. We choose 3, 4 as our a and b in the first move. Then the original set {3, 4, 12} transforms to {0.8 * 3 - 0.6 x 4, 0.6 x 3 + 0.8 x 4, 12} But we needn't evaluate them exactly. Instead observe that (0.8a - 0.6bf + (0.6a + 0.8b) 2 = (0.8 2 + 0.6 2 ) (a 2 + b2) =a +b Thus at any stage of operation, sum of square of numbers of the triplet = constant = 3 2 + 4 2 + 122 = 5 2 + 122 = 132 = 169 That is, no matter how many times we perform the operation on the set {3, 4, 12}, the triplets generated will always have their sum of squares as 169.

=> p1 (p 2 + l) 2 - (p2 + l) 2 - / 7 s +p2(p2+ 1 )p = 0 which reduces to p6 + p4 + p3 - p2 - 1=0 Showing that p = ab is a root of the equation x6 + x* + x3 - x2 - \ = 0 35. 4JT + 5 / = 72z 2 We first observe that x must be divisible by 3 and that is an even integer. Setting x = 3u and y = 2v yields 36 u2 + 36v 2 = 72z2 => u «

Since there are at most 3 x 3 x 3 = 27 solutions, which is obvious from the degree of the system, and we have already found 27 distinct ones, these are all the solutions. 37. 99899 is a palindromic number. Write 99899 = 9x4 + 9x3 + 8x2 + 9x + 9, x = 10 Above is a reciprocal equation that can be factorised by pairing off terms equidistant from the beginning and the end. 9x4 + 9x3+

Returning to x = 10 we obtain 99899 = (3-102 - 2 • 10 + 3) (3 • 102 + 5 • 10 + 3) = 283 x 353 Showing that 99899 is composite. 38. Let N = aabb be the base 10 representation of such a number, 1 < a <9, 0 < b < 9 N = aaOO + bb = 11 x 100a + 116 = ll(100a + b) As A' is a perfect square and 11 is a factors of N 100a + b must be a multiple of 11. Thus b = 11 - a The last two digits of a perfect square where both the digits are equal is only 44. It follows that b = 4 => a = 7. N = 7744 is the desired number 7744 = 11 x 704 = 11 x 11 x 64 = 882. There is only one such number. 39. Consider the triangle ABC. By angle bisector theorem (.'.

(using Euler's formula, e' e = cos0 + isinS) Now z = e M gives on raising the relation to the 8 th power z8 = e'K = COSTI + zsin7i = - 1 . Again squaring we get z16 = 1 so we have z"+16 = z" -z16 = z" V n s N Consequently the set A = {z" : n e N) has 16 elements in it. Remark : Another way to interpret the answer is to realize that z16 produces the identity element. 4. x3 => => (c) : Let's put a = 266.

According the equation has multiple roots, (c) is true-that's just a restatement of the the statement - all roots of the given equation are real. 5.

The above relation can be interpreted thus - when (aP + Py + y a j and (a + P + y) is multiplied, it produces two type of term, a 2 P type and aPy type.

(q)(p) = Ea 2 P + 3r :. Ea 2 p = pq - 3r 8. (c) : As every subgroup of a cyclic is cyclic, H being a subgroup of the cyclic group G, is cyclic. Hence (a) is incorrect. (b) is also incorrect. To produce a counter example, we can take H = G in particular. As every cyclic group is abelian, H is abelian making (d) incorrect. (c) is correct. In fact the statement is - Every proper subgroup of an infinite cyclic group is infinite. 9. (b) : Recall the theorem that states - A group 79

G = {e} has no proper subgroups iff G is a finite cyclic group of prime order. 10. (c) : If A and B are cyclic group of order m and n respectively, then A x B is cyclic iff m and n are relatively prime. As (12, 9) * 1, (10, 85) * 1, where (a, b) denotes the gcd greatest common divisor of a and b, choice (a) and (b) are ruled out - zl2 x z 9 and z ] 0 x z 85 are not cyclic. (Recall that zn is always cyclic). Between (c) and (d), we rule out (c), for we have in (c) z 4 x z 6 and (4, 6) * 1. Thus z 4 x z25 x z 6 is not cyclic. But in (d) if we take any pair z m and zn, m and n are relatively prime viz., (22, 21) = 1, (22, 65) = 1, (21, 65) = 1 Thus z 22 x z21 x z65 is cyclic. 11. (c) : For a non-empty set G equipped with a binary operation to be group it must show closure and associativity. And there exist the identity element and inverse of each element of G. While (a), (b) and (d) are groups, (c) fails the test, for the inverse of the element 0 e Q doesn't exist. Every other element except 0 possesses an inverse. So the set of all rational numbers don't form a group under the composition a x b - ab!2 for want of invertibility of the element 0 e Q. 12. (d) : Let e = (a, p) be the identity element, then by definition (a, b)(a, p) = (a, b) (aa, ba + p) = (a, b) which on comparison gives aa = a and ba + P = b => a = 1 and b + P = b (Note that a * 0 and o <zR*) a = 1 and P = 0 Thus identity element is (1, 0). Let inverse of (<a, b) be (x, y) then (a, b) • (x, y) = e = (1, 0) (ax, bx + y) = (1, 0) which yields ax =. 1 , bx + y - 0, x = arl, y = -ba~l. 13. ( b ) : As every subgourp of an abelian group is abelian (a) is incorrect. Cyclic group can have only cyclic groups, thus (c) is incorrect. Also, non-cyclic groups may have cyclic subgroup, making (d) incorrect. (b) is correct - S3, a non-abelian group, has a subgroup A 3 which is abelian. 14. (c) : 1st Solution a = (1 3 5.7'.11X2 4 6) € Sn a has been written as a product of two disjoint cycles.

15. (c) : (R, +, •) is ring, with respect to addition it is abelian and w.r.t. multiplication it is a semi-group. Thus (a) is incorrect. (R, +, •) is commutative (abelian). (b) is also incorrect, (c) is correct - (R, +, •) don't have unity. As having unity element is a necessary condition for a ring to be a field. (Ry +,-) is not a field. Thus (d) is also incorrect. 16. (a) : Assertion (1) is true. Assertion (3) is also true - zp is integral domain iff is a prime. Assertion (4) is also true. But assertion (2) is wrong - zn is a field iff n is prime. 17. (c), (d) : I f / i s a finite field with n elements then n is a power of prime. So n = 37 and n - 125 = 5 3 both are true. Remark : (c) and (d) are both answers. 18. (c) : R is a finite field. In a field every non-zero element has a multiplicative inverse. Thus the number of invertible elements - n - 1. 19. (c) : Every field is a vector space over its subfield. Then R(Q) is a vector space, as Q c R. Again R(R) and C(C) are vector space. But Q(R) is not a vector space. Take for counter example V5 e R, 5 G Q But 5 ^ 5 ss Q.

Hence choice (b). Others can be shown to be false. 21.

Similarly V2 can be shown to be a subspace of V. 2 2 . (d) : -F[x], the ring of polynomials is a vector space over F. Since x" = 0 for a fixed n e TV, general element of i^x] can't be written as a combination of finite polynomials. Thus dimension of is infinite.

Rajasthan plarrsto set up IIT at Kota
The Rajasthan government has picked Kota to set up IIT for which it has sent a proposal to the Union human resources development ministry. The ministry had approved the setting up of NTs in Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh and Bihar. The Andhra Pradesh government has decided to set up the IIT at Medak while the Bihar government has suggested Patna as the location. A team of officials from the HRD ministry headed by joint secretary Ravi Mathur had visited the state and saw a few locations. The team found that location wise Kota was best suited and had distinct advantage over other contending cities like Jaipur, Udaipur, Ajmer and Jodhpur. The state government earlier had appointed a committee headed by additional chief secretary A.K. Pandey to recommend the location for setting up the IIT. Jaipur, Kota, Udaipur, Ajmer and Jodhpur were shortlisted. The committee found that Jaipur was ideally suited, but setting up the IIT would mean overcrowding the state capital which already has a good education infrastructure. Moreover, availability of 650 acres for the IIT was a problem in Jaipur apart from the drinking water. Bhawani Singh Rajawat, parliamentary secretary, told that Kota, besides the intellectual atmosphere, offers adequate infrastructure! facilities for setting up of I IT. "There is already an IIT connect with the city. Every yearthousands of students from across the country come here for IIT-JEE coaching."

Equation of plane is x — 3y + 2z — 2 — 3(1) + 2 ( - l ) = 2 - 3 - 2 = - 3 . That is, x - 3y + 2z + 3 = 0. i z l = 111 = £ Z 1 cos G sin 9 0 Direction of normal to the plane is cos9, sin8, 0. Equation of the required plane is xcos8 + ysine + 0 x z = k But (0, 0, y) lies on the plane => O x cos0 + 0 x sin0 + 0 • y = k :. k = 0 Thus the equation of plane is xcosG + y sinG = 0 => x + >^anG = 0. 41.

But if Sx is true, then S2 is true, for the only difference between the pair of lines given by Sl and S2 is that their point of intersection is different. They both have same slopes. 37.

EQ (Emotional Quotient), what it means is to be able to manage emotions well, express ideas and thoughts appropriately and effectively, show empathy, become adept in handling inter-personal relationships, handle stress comfortably by being resilient, to be motivated and to be able to motivate. Many people have a wrong notion that to have high levels of EQ is to "always be nice", which is not right. Why is it important to boost your EQ ? Though IQ is essential for performance, it is EQ which determines who emerges as a leader. Human traits are very crucial, irrespective • of the field we work in. Adaptability, empathy, persuasive ability, intuitive ability, perseverance and good nature are as important as intellectual ability and technical know-how, as they are the ingredients for excellence at work and more so for leadership. The results of a survey shows that the EQ in children is not developing on par with their IQ In fact the survey shows that it is on a decline. In the present times, children are found to be more lonely, depressed, angry, unruly and emotionally down. So a conscious effort should be made on the part of parents to nurture the EQ in children. One hard fact however is that nobody is perfect. Each one of us have a profile of weaknesses, strong points and limitations. Hence, it is very important to first know where we stand when it comes to EQ levels and then we could work to better ourselves.

Arrange this as a quadratic equation in a, to yield a2 - a ( l + 2x2) + x4-x = 0

=> a2 - a( 1 + 2x2) + x(x3 - 1) = 0

=> a2 - a ( l + 2x2) + (x2 - x)(x2 + x + 1) = 0
=>

a 2 - a( 1 + 2x 2 ) + x(x - l)(x 2 + x + 1) = 0 cr — a{(x 2 - x) + (x2 + x + 1)} + (x 2 - x)(x 2 + x + 1) = 0

=> a = x2 - x or a = x 2 + x + 1

So we have factored / ( x ) = 0 in quadratic equations x 2 - x - V2 = 0 ; x 2 + x + 1 - V 2 = 0

B contains every multiple of 9, i.e. all positive integers divisible by 9. Hence A must be a subset of B. (b) is ruled out because B contains all the multiples of 9, but A doesn't contain all multiples of 9. (c) is ruled out for that statement in effect says A = B, which is obviously not true. (d) is ruled out for there are no numbers in A that are not in B. 28. (b) : Using the properties of the power, we rewrite the inequality as 6 - 5<0

(n + 1)(« + 2). (n + 1), (n + 2) are consecutive integers so one of them has to be even and thus divisible by 2. So we need to find those positive integers n for which (n + 1) (n + 2) is a multiple of 3. If n — 3m none of (n + 1), (n + 2) is multiple of 3. If n = 3m + 1 then (n + 2) is a multiple of 3. If n = 3m + 2 then (n + 1) is a multiple of 3. Then (n + \)(n + 2) is a multiple of 3 if n ^ 3n i.e if n is not a multiple of 3. As there are 664 positive integers divisible by 3 and not exceeding 1993, so the number of positive integers n for which n < 1993 and 6 is a factor of n2 + 3n + 2 is 1993 - 664 = 1329. 32.

(a), (b) : Given any five numbers of the group, there must be a lock for which one of them has the key. But each of the other six members must have their key, since the addition of one more numbers to the five forms a majority. Therefore the number of locks must be at least equal to the number of ways in which 5 people can be selected out of 11 scientists. 11x10x9x8x7 11 = 462 C5 1x2x3x4x5 Now let A be one of the scientists, we have just seen that given any set of 5 scientist, selected from remaining 10, there is a lock which they cannot open, and that A has a key to this lock. 10x9x8x7x6 10. = 252 keys. So, A has at least Q> 1x2x3x4x5 The lower bounds just derived can actually be attained using 462 locks, one for each set of 5 scientists. 31.

Sum of the angles of the pentagon = 180°(5 - 2) = 540° We have, 0 + (0 + a ) + (6 + 2 a ) + (9 + 3 a ) + (0 + 4 a ) = 540° => 5 0 + 10a = 540° => 0 + 2 a = 1 0 8 ° But 0 + 2 a is the third angle, then the second angle is 108° - a , fourth angle is 108° + a , first angle is 108° - 2 a , and fifth the greatest angle is 108° + 2 a . Since an interior angle of a convex polygon is smaller than 180° we have 108° + 2 a < 180 => 2 a < 72 Hence 108° - 2 a > 108° - 72° = 36° As the smallest angle is greater than 36°, each angle is obviously larger than 36°. 38.

Study At Night Only If You Don't Feel Sleepy
n Australian scientist's claim that the human brain learns best it night as the cerebral cortex (that controls memory) functions better after sunset hasn't found many takers. There are lots of students, who prefer studying at night, Night birds argue that each one's study pattern is different and what might suit them may not be good for someone else. They say studying at night has nothing to do with their brains performing better. Prof. Vijayalakshmi Reddy, faculty, Osmania University, feels that the time of study that suits one best varies from person to person. "Since one can study without any noise and distractions at night, concentration is better and the student isn't anxious in the morning as he finished studying the previous night." she says. Sneha Mody, a student, too feels it's best to study at night, but says it won't work if you are dying to hit the bed. "Studying at night can be effective only if you don't feel sleepy or else you may forget everything in the examination hall. I stay up at night, finish my portion and then sleep in a relaxed state of mind," she says. Ravi K., a student also agrees that the amount of concentration matters more than the time of study. He says, "Actually, it's the fear of over-sleeping that keeps students awake at night. But it's essential to get some sleep to calm the nerves, otherwise the mind may go blank while writing the exam." Neurologist Dr. Amrit Saxena of Care Hospital doesn't take the scientists findings seriously, but he advocates studying at night. "The effectiveness of one's study depends on their concentration and how refreshed the mind is at that time. Usually, night time or early mornings are considered the best time to study because the surrounding atmosphere is calm and quiet and thus chances of distraction are very little," he says. But on the other hand, neurologist at the Apollo Hospital Dr Sudhir Kumar believes that late night studying doesn't help at all especially if you are sleepy and tired. "Seven to eight hours of undisturbed sleep at night is required. You may occasionally stay awake and study at night during exams, but don't make it a habit," he warns. For better results, more than just studying at night, a right frame of mind and lack of distractions appear to be vital.

But the trouble is we don't know whether this extreme value is greatest or least. 2.

SOLUTIONS
We transform the given expression as

If 41 is to be a good integer, then 2 + w + v = 4/, as there are 2 + w + v factors. From (A) 41 = 21 + 2 + w - v => 21= 2 + w - v => w - v = 21 - 2 Solving this with w + v = 41 - 2 we have w = 3/ - 2 and v = / Thus for each 4/, we have w l ' s and v - l ' s such that 41 is capable of being written both as a sum of 41 integers and a product of 41 integers. Hence, 2 2005 = 4(2 2003 ) and 2 2006 = 4 • (2 2004 ) are both good. 3. (b), 4. (c) : Let the number of pages in the novel be n.

t h u s the sum of n u m b e r s of t h e torn page = 15,225 - 15,000 = 225 and so the page numbers on the torn page should be 112 and 113. But it is not the answer ! (open any book and convince yourself that the smaller number of the torn page should be odd) 175x176 = 15,400 2 2 Then the sum of numbers on the torn page = 15,400 - 15000 = 400, which is even and hence can't be written as a sum of two consecutive integers. Hence rejected. In summary, the numbers on the torn page are 25 and 26 and the number of pages is 173. For n = 175, Write the given equation as In + 6n + 6\ = In2 + 4n + 91 + 13 - 2n\ => I(n 2 + An + 9) + (2n - 3)1 = In2 + An + 91 + 12n - 31 ....(A) Now we use the fact that if \a + b\ = Ia\ + \b\ then both summands must have the same sign.

the last two laps of Ram, first in the 1st lap, when the race starts and second in the 18th lap (beginning). Because the ratio of speeds of Ram and Shyam is 9 : 8, when Ram has completed 18 laps, Shyam would have completed 16 laps, thus they are both at starting point. So they will not meet in that lap of Ram. As Ram takes 20 laps (20 x 50 = 1000) to finish the 1 km race, they would meet 20 - 2 = 18 times. The spectactor would cheer 18 times. 21. (d) m - 1 is divisible by 3, So (m - 1) + 3 = m + 2 is also divisible by 3. Again (m + 1) when divisible by 2 leaves a remainder 1, So (m + 1) + 1 = m + 2 is divisible by 2 As (m + 2) is divisible by both 3 and 2 and 3 are co-prime, (m + 2) is divisible by 6. m + 2 = 0 (mod 6) => (m - 1) s - 3 (mod 6) => m - 1 = 3 (mod 6) (m - 1) when divided by 6 leaves a remainder 3. 22.

[7975 will have one more multiple of 5 and one more multiple of 25 than |7972 and [7985 will have 3 more multiple of 5 and 1 more multiple of 25 than |7972 . Then [7985 is one such number. Also 17986, |7987, [7988, [7989 with requirement that they end with 1993 zeroes. Thus there are 5 such numbers in all. 36.

= ~(4R2 + 4R2) 4R2 =4x2 = 16 cm" 2 38, (c) Consider the remainders obtained when the given 181 square integers are divided by 19. If m is any integer then m is congruent module 19 to one of the numbers 0, 1, 2, .... 18. And hence m2 is congruent to 0, 1, 4, 9, 16, 6, 17, 11, 7 or 5. i.e. in2 when divided by 19 can leave remainders only 0 , 1 , 4 , 9, 16, 6, 1 7 , 1 1 , 7 or 5. Thus there are 10 possible values for the remainders. Since there are 181 remainders at least one of them must repeat 19 times or more. Choose 19 numbers congruent to that remainder. The sum of those 19 numbers will be divisible by 19. 39.

Comprehension - 1 Just imagine how difficult it would be to solve the problems of Science and technology with the help of euclidian geometry without applying the concept of coordinates.That algebriac punch given by Great mathematician Rene de's carte has made life of mathematician much simpler who else than a mathematician can better appreciate this fact. Similarly while solving some problems of coordinate geometry, wise application of the concept of theory of equation may reduce the effort to a great extent. Just try how good you can apply the above suggestion to solve problems based on following two cases. Case 1. A circle of variable radius given by x2+y^ + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0 cuts the rectangular hyperbola x2 -y2 = 9a2 in points P,Q,R and 5 at (xvyj,(xvyj,(xvy,) and (x4,>>4), then 22. Thecentriod of the APQR is : (a) -2g-x„ -If - y4 3 (b)
2 g + x4 2f + yA

Case 2. If the line x = 0 bisect the chord from a point (a,P) to the circle, x2 + y2 - ax ~ fiy = 0, then 25. The condition for (a,P) is: (a) a 2 + PJ = 2ap (b) 7a 2 + 7p 2 + 18aP = 0 2 2 (c) a + P = 1 8 a P (d) none of these. 26. If y + x - 0 bisects two chords drawn from a point (a,p) to the circle, then: (a) a 2 + P2 > 2 a p (b) 7a 2 + 7p 2 + 18ap < 0 (c) a 2 + p 2 >18ap (d) none of these. Comprehension - 2 If we observe the expansion of a determinant a, i, c, then we conclude that A is a sum of 6 fb terms which are of the type apck (i * j * k).We will observe that each permutation of 1,2,3 will occur exactly once. Half the terms will be with positive sign, the other half will be negative sign.
+fl A = cifrc, + a2 3 V 2 - (aAci+aAci Vj) Note that each term is a product of three entries of the determinant. Each entry appears once in positive zone and once in negative zone.

MATHEMATICS TODAY | JANUARY '07

hitting the region of area Kl is proportional to Kr We thus define P (hitting region Kx of area K.) = — where it is assumed that the probability of hitting the target is 1. O/ther assumptions can of course be made. e.g. there could be less probability of hitting outer areas. The type of assumption used defines probability distribution function. A random experiment in which the outcomes cannot be identified discretely and so the sample space of such an experiment will not contain distinguishable elements. Such problems are termed as problems of continuous infinite sample space. An example of such a sample space can be an interval in the set of real numbers. Now, consider the following experiment. Let your pen drop, downwards into one of the pages of your notebook afid note the point on the paper that the pen first touches. Here the sample space S consists of all the points on the paper. Let R and C be the events that the pencil drops into a rectangle and a circle as illustrated in the adjacent figure. Clearly the sample space S and the event sets R and C contain a uniform distribution of points. We consider only those sample spaces which have some finite geometrical measurement such as length, area or volume and in which a point is selected at random. The probability of an event R, i .e. the selected point Length of R or Length of S volume of R P(E) = areao^ A or />(£) = area of S " ' volume of S Such a probability space is said to be uniform or continuous. belongs to R will be given by P(E) 29. A point is selected at random inside an equilateral triangle whose side length is 3. The probability that its distance from any corner is greater than 1 is

A coin of diameter 1/2 is tossed randomly onto the rectangular cartesian plane. The probability that the coin does not intersect any line whose equation is of the form x = k, k is integer, is (a) 1 - } V 2 (c) 1/4 (b) -yj" (d) 1/2

A person playing darts find that the probability of the dart striking between r and r + dr is P(r < R<r + dr) = k H i dr

Here R is the distance of the hit from the centre of the target, k is constant and the radius of the target is 2 units. The probability of hitting the bulls eye, which is assumed to have radius 1 unit is (a) 1/4 (b) 1/3 (c) 11/16 (d) none of these. 34. Two points are selected at random in the interval 0 < x < 1. The probability that the sum of their square is less than 1 is (b) 7t/2 (a) 1/2 (d) none of these. (c) 7t/4 Comprehension - 4 As we are familiar with the fact for (2 dimensional coordinate geometry) that if two objects move along straight path their loci must intersect at some point unless they are parallel straight lines but in three dimensional geometry it is not exactly the same i.e. two point objects even moving on straight paths such that their paths are not parallel may not intersect each other's path. Such straight paths are termed as skew lines.Therefore skew lines may be defined as 'pair of lines in the space which are neither parallel nor intersecting'. Two skew lines can be intersected by an infinite number of lines as a

variable point on one can be joined to a variable point on the other. Of these intersecting lines there is one and only one which is shortest and intersects both the skew lines perpendicularly. By the shortest distance between two lines we mean the join of a point in one with one point on the other so that the length of the segment so obtained is the smallest. If the equation of two straight lines are given one can always obtain the equation of shortest distance as well as the shortest distance between the given two straight lines using the following illustration.

By Alok kumar, B.Tech, IITKanpur The Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Kolkata, is considered as one of the foremost centres in the world for training and research in statistics and the related sciences. The B.Stat (Hons) degree program, the flagship programme of the institute, offers comprehensive instruction in the theory, method and application of statistics, in addition to several areas of Mathematics and some basic areas of computer science. Each candidate applying for admission to this programme has to take a selection test comprising Objective type and Short-answer type questions in mathematics at the Higher Secondary level (10 + 2 year's programme). The selection tests consists of (1) A multiple choice type test having about 30 questions, and (2) A short-answer type test having about 10 questions. Questions will be set on the following and related topics. Algebra : Sets, operations on sets, prime numbers, factorization of integers and divisibility, rational and irrational numbers, permutations and combinations, binomial theorem, logarithms, theory of quadratic equations, polynomial and remainder theorem, arithmetic and geometric progressions, inequalities involving A.M., G.M., and H.M., complex numbers. Geometry : Plane geometry of class X level. Geometry of 2 dimensions with cartesian and polar co-ordinates. Concept of a locus, equation of a line, angle between two lines, distance from a point to a line. Areas of a triangle, equations of a circle, parabola, ellipse and hyperbola and equations of their tangents and normals, mensuration. Trigonometry : Measures of angles, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, trigonometric identities including addition formulae, solutions of trigonometric equations. Properties of triangles, heights and distances. Calculus : Functions, one-one functions, onto functions, limits and continuity, derivatives and methods of differentiation, slope and curve, tangents and normals, maxima and minima, use of calculus in sketching graph of functions, methods of integration, definite and indefinite integrals, evaluation of area using integrals. Logical Reasoning : Consistency of statements. In response to growing demand from students preparing for the ISI, we bring to you the first Mock ISI paper, which closely simulates the real exam.

3 ° +l (d) : The number 26 can be written as 26 = 5 x 1 + 7 x 3 Also note that 33 = 5 x 1 + 7 x 4 and 34 = 5 x 4 + 7 x 2 Hence the number required is greater than 34 Every number greater than 35 can be written as 5a + 7b for suitable values of a and b. For example 103 can be written as 103 = 7 x 9 + 5 x 8 But 3 5 = 5 m + In, representation in positive integers is not possible. 5m is 5, 10, 15, 20, 15 - none of which is a multiple of 7. For m = 7, n becomes zero. But n has to be a positive integer. Thus it follows that 35 can't represented in the form 5m + In. 8. (b) : Let n2 + 96 = k2, k eN => k2 - n2 = 96 => (k - n)(k f n) = 96 (k-n) + (k+ n) = 26 = even. It follows that (k - n) and (,k + n) are either both odd or both even. But if both are odd, product can be even. Thus both must be even. Now k + n>k-n and 96 can be factored in the following way as a product of even numbers] 96 = 2 x 48 = 4 x 24 = 6 x 16 = 8 x 12 We have k- n = 2, k + n = 48 (k, n) = (25, 23) k-n = 4, k + n = 24 => (k, n) = (14, 10) k- n = 6, k + n = 16 => (k, n) = (11, 5) k - n = 8, k + n = 12 (k, n) = (10, 2) Thus there are four positive integers n such that n 2 + 96 is a perfect square.

(c) : In this problem, it is easier to calculate first the ordered pairs, (A, B). To each element x of s assign the numbers 1, 2 or 0 according as x is in A, or in B or in neither of them. Each way of disposing of the numbers of S can be associated with a 100-digit string made up of 1,2 or 0. For instance, 0121012... 1 means element' 1' is in neither of^l and B, element '2' is in A, element '3' is in B, i.e., first number tells where first element is, second number tells where 2nd element is, etc. Any selection of A and B corresponds to the number of 100 digit number which can be made using digits 0, 1 or 2 with leading zeros allowed. There are obviously 3 100 such number.

Multiplying both the equations we obtain 3xy(x + y- 2)(x + y - 1) = \&xy => 3xy{(x + y-2){x +y- l ) - 6 } = 0 => 3xy{(x + y)2 - 3(x + .y) + 2 - 6} = 0 3xy{(x + y)2 - 3(x + y) - 4} = 0 xy{(x +y- 4)(x + y + 1)} = 0 The equation now breaks into x = 0 o r } ' = 0 o r j c + ; y - 4 = 0 or x + y + 1 = 0 Set x + y = 4 in both equations, we have 6x = 2y y = 3JC which yields x = 1, y = 3 Set x + y = - 1 in both equations, we have y = -9x12 7 9 = 2 ~-x = -l Thus y> y 1 So there are three solutions (0, 0), (1, 3), (2/7, -9/7). 26. (d) : Let the sides of isosceles triangle be x, x, y. There will exist such a unique triangle iff 2 x > y . Hence for a fixed x, y can vary from 1 to 2x - 1. Also * and y must satisfy x, y < 1994. 1994 Case I: x < - y - = 997 As y varies from 1 to 2x - 1, i.e. y can be take 2x - 1 values. Hence the number of isosceles triangles obtained is the sum of first 997 odd natural numbers, i.e. it equals (997) 2 . Case II : 99$ <x< 1994 Now y can take any value between 1 and 1994 and x has 997 possibilities. So number of isosceles triangles in this case = 997 x 1994= 2 * (997) 2 Total number of isosceles triangles = 997 2 + 2 x (997) 2 = 3 x (997) 2 = 3 x (103 - 3) 2 = 3[10 6 - 6 x 103 + 9] = 3 x 994009 = 2982027. 27. (b) : Let a' = a - 1, b' = b - 12, c' = c + 1, then the equation a + b + c = 24 becomes {a' + 1) + (b' + 12) + (c' - 1) = 24 => a' + b' + c' = 12 We want non-negative integral solutions satisfying the conditions a' < 4, b' < 6, c ' < 1 3 Let s2 and s2 be respectively the set of solutions (a', b\ c') such that a' > 4, b' > 6, c' > 13. s, n s2 is the set of all solutions such that a' > 4 and b' > 6.

Thus there are 333 such numbers. II : Numbers having zero in the tens place we describe all such numbers as t = xoy Here x can be any of 1, 2, ... 33 and y can be any of 0, 1 , 2 , ... 9 Thus there are 33 x 10 = 330 such numbers III : Numbers having zero in the hundreds place we describe all such numbers as xoyz where 1 < * < 3, 0 <y, z < 10 Thus there are 3 x 102 = 300 such numbers. Hence total number of times '0' is written = 333 + 330 + 300 = 963 30. ( d ) : We deal with the modulus sign by considering four possible cases.

IV : x < 0 and x < y y Then our equation becomes (0, (4,4) -x - ( x - y ) = 4 2'x-y=-4. 2 x-y = 4 => -2x + y = 4 2x -y = -4 ("2'°), The set of points is made up of four line segments. ( ' Note that the figure is a parallelogram. The curve is symmetric about origin. 31. The function g(x) = lax + b is a linear function. As x varies over the interval [-1, 1], g(x) assumes its minimum and maximum values at the endpoints of that interval. Hence it is enough to prove that the value of g(x) at x = - 1 and x = 1, i.e. the numbers g ( - l ) = - 2 a + b and g(l) = la + b are neither less than - 4 nor greater than 4.

we have - 8 < a - 6 + c < 1 8 So there are two possibilities a - 6 + c = 0 o r a - 6 + c = ll In the first case a-b + c = 0=>b=a +c by substitution on the equation (1) a2 + {a + c)2 + c 2 - 99 - (a + c) = 0, => 2a 2 + (2c - 10)a + 2c 2 - c = 0 For the equation to have a solution D > 0 => (2c - 10)2 - 8 (2c 2 - c) > 0 => 4c 2 - 40c + 100 - 16c2 + 8c > 0 => - 3 c 2 - 8c + 25 > 0 => 3c 2 + 8c - 25 < 0 This gives c < 1. because for c > 2 3c2 + 8c > 3 • 4 + 8 • 2 = 28 > 25 If c = 0, then 2a 2 - 10a = 0, which gives a = b = 5. (Recall a * 0) If c = 1, then 2a 2 - 8a + 1 = 0 but this equation has no integer solutions. Let us now examine the other possibility b = a + c - 11. By substituting this into (1) we have a2 + (a + c - l l ) 2 + c 2 - 9a - (a + c - 11) = 1 ...(2) which as a quadratic in ' a ' yields 2a 2 + (2c - 32)a + 2c 2 - 23c + 1 3 1 = 0 For it to have real solution, D > 0 => 4(c-16) 2 -8(2c 2 -23c+131 )>0 =>4(-3c 2 +14c-6) > 0 the above yields c < 4. Because for c > 5 the L.H.S. is negative. Accordingly c can only be 2, 3 or 4. c can't be even. c - 3 Now substituting it into (2) and solving we get a = 8 It gives b = 0 . the other pair of values a = 5, b = - 3 is not accpetable. (Because b is negative). The given conditions are therefore satsified only by the numbers 550 and 803. One can verify that they are indeed the solutions. 36.

Let x0 the integral root, then (x0 +A,)(JC0+ 1991)+ 1 = 0 = > {x0 + A.)(JC0 + 1991) = - 1 either x0 + X = 1, x0 + 1991 = - 1 on x0 + X = - 1 , x0 + 1991 = 1 First system yield x0 = - 1992 giving X = 1 -x0 = 1 - (-1992) = 1993 Second system yields x0 = -1990 giving X = -\ — Xq = — - ( - 1 9 9 0 ) = 1989 1 Thus there are two integral values of X, viz 1989 ad 1993 for which the expression {x + + 1991)+ 1 can be factored as (x + a)(x + P); a and P being integers. 37.

So that origin is the orthocentre of the triangle and the line 3x - 4y = 0 passes through this orthocentre. 6. • (b): From geometry we know PA- PB = (PT)2 where PT is the length of the tangent from P to the circle. Hence PA • PB = (3)2 + ( l l ) 2 - 9 = l l 2 = 121. Alternately Equation of any line through (3, 11) is x - 3 >-11 , . == r (say) cos 9 sin 9 Then the coordinates of a point on this line at a distance r from (3, II) are (3 + r cos 9, LL +_r sin 9) and if this lies on the given circle x2 + y2 = 9 => 9 + 121 + 2 r ( 3 cos 9 + 11 sin 9) + r 2 = 9 => r2 + 2r (3 cos 9 + 11 sin 9 ) + 121 = 0 which is quadratic in r, gives two values of r say r, and r2 and hence the distances of the points A and B from P. Thus, PA • PB r, r2= 121. 7. ( b ) : Writing a, = i - j, 2-1 0 0 = 2i + k,a2 = 2i - j , b2=i+j-k. 1 0 0 0 1 = 2 0 1 = -1*0 [(«2 — «i) b b2] = 2 1 1 -1 1 1 -1 So the given lines do not intersect. Clearly they are not parallel as A, and b2 are not parallel. 8. (c): We are given P (A) = 0.5 and P(AnB)< 0.3 We have P(A) + P (B) - P (Au B) = P (A n B) < 1 => P ( ^ ) + P ( f i ) < l + F ( / ( u B ) < l + 0 . 3 = 1.3 => 0.5 + P (B) < 1.3 => (B) < 0.8 Thus, probability of B getting selected cannot exceed

Point O is a fixed point in the border area of country Cx. From point O two perpendicular roads one of which is in North-South direction and the other is in the East-West direction. In the North direction from point O two check posts A and B are such that OA=y and AB = h where h > 0, y > 0. In the West direction of point O the road leads to the border and reaches the territory of country C 2 . An army vehicle 0 of country C 2 is leading towards point O from the West direction, when distance of the vehicle from fixed point O is J (say OQ = x) then angle C subtended at the vehicle Q by check posts A and B is 6. It has been decided that the vehicle Q will be targeted at the instance when angle 0 becomes maximum, say 0 m a x = a. The mathematics of the problem reveals that y and h are known values whereas 0 and J are variables, C therefore all the answers and conclusions are to be computed in terms o f y and h.

1. Let ABC be a triangle with incentre /. A point P in the interior of the triangle satisfies Z PBA + Z PCA = Z PBC + Z PCB Show that AP>AI, and that equality holds if and only if P = I. 2. Let P be a regular 2006-gon. A diagonal of P is called good if its endpoints divide the boundary of P into two parts, each composed of an odd number of sides of P. The sides of P are also called good. Suppose P has been dissected into triangles by 2003 diagonals, no two of which have a common point in the interior of P. Find the maximum number of isosceles triangles having two good sides that could appear in such a configuration. 3. Determine the least real number M such that the inequality |ab(a2 - b2) + bc(b2 - c2) + ca(c2 - a2)\ < M(a2 + b2 + c2)2 holds for all real numbers a, b and c. 4. Determine all pairs (x, y) of integers such that 1 + 2X + 22r + 1 =y2. 5. Let P(x) be a polynomial of degree n > 1 with integer coefficients and let k be a positive integer. Consider the polynomial Q(x) = P(P(.... P(P(x)) )), where P occurs k times. Prove that there are at most n integers t such that Q(') = t. Therefore, AP > AI. Equality holds if and only if P lies on the line s e g m e n t s / , which occurs if and only if P = I. 2. Call an isosceles triangle good if it has two odd sides. Suppose we are given a dissection as in the problem statement. A triangle in the dissection which is good and isosceles will be called iso-goocl for brevity. Lemma. Let AB be one of dissecting diagonals and let L be the shorter part of the boundary of the 2006-gon with endpoints A, B. Suppose that L consists of n segments. Then the number if iso-good triangles with vertices on L does not exceed w/2. Proof: This is obvious for n = 2. Take n with 2 < n < 1003 and assume the claim to be true for every L of length less than n. Let now L (endpoints A, B) consists of n segments. Let PQ be the longest diagonal which is a side of an iso-good triangle PQS with all vertices on L if there is no such triangle, there is nothing to prove). Every triangle whose vertices lie on L is obtuse or right-angled;

other words, P lies on the circumcircle co of triangle BCI. Let Q be the circumcircle of triangle ABC. It is a wellknown fact that the centre of co is the midpoint M of the arc BC of Q. This is also the point where the angle bisector AI intersects Q.

SOLUTIONS
1. L e t Z ^ = a , Z 5 = ( 3 , Z C = y. Since Z PBA + Z PCA + Z PBC + Z PCB = (3 + y, the condition from the problem statement is equivalent to ZPBC + ZPCB=~-,

i.e.ZBPC=

90° + - .

2

On the other hand Z BIC = 1 8 0 ° - - ^ ± ^ = 90° + 2

Hence Z BPC = Z BIC and since P and I are on the same side of BC, the points B, C, 1 and P are concyclic. In

thus S is the summit of PQS. We may assume that the five points A, P, S, Q, B lie on L in this order and partition L into four pieces LAP, Lps, Lso, L0H (the outer ones possibly reducing to a point). By the definition of PO, an iso-good triangle cannot have vertices on both LAP and Log. Therefore every iso-good triangle within L has all its vertices on just one of the four pieces. Applying to each of these pieces the induction hypothesis and adding the four inequalities we get that the number ofiso-good triangles within L other than PQS does not exceed n/2. And since each of Lps, Lso consists of an odd number of sides, the inequalities for these two pieces are actually strict, leaving a 1/2 + 1/2 in excess. Hence the triangle PSQ is also covered by the estimate n/2. This concludes the induction step and proves the lemma. The remaining part of the solution in fact repeats the argument from the above proof. Consider the longest dissecting diagonal XY. Let Lyy be the shorter of the two parts of the boundary with endpointsA, Y and letATZbe the triangle in the dissection with vertex Z not on Lxy. Notice that XYZ is acute or right-angled, otherwise one of the segments A'Z, YZ would be longer than AT. Denoting by Lxz, LY7 the two pieces defined by Z and applying the lemma to each of LXY, L^, Lyz we infer that there are no more than 2006/2 iso-good triangles in all, unless ATZ is one of them. But in that case XZ and YZ are good diagonals and the corresponding inequalities are strict. This shows that also in this case the total number of iso-good triangles inthe dissection, including XYZ, is not greater than 1003. This bound can be achieved. For this to happen, it just suffices to select a vertex of the 2006-gon and draw a broken line joining every second vertex, starting from the selected one. Since 2006 is even, the line closes. This already gives us the required 1003 iso-good triangles. Then we can complete the triangulation in an arbitrary fashion. We first consider the cubic polynomial P(t) = tb(t2 - b2) + bc(b2 - c2) + ct(c2 - t2) It is easy to check that P(b) = P(c) = P(-b - c) = 0, and therefore, Pit) = (b- c)(t - b)(t - c)(t + b + c), since the cubic coefficient is b - c. The left-hand side of the proposed inequality can therefore be written in the form \ab(a2 - b2) + bc(b2 - c2) + ca(c2 - a2)| = |P(a)| = \(b - c)(a - b)(a - c)(a + b + c)\

The problem comes down to finding the smallest number A/that satisfies the inequality |(6 - c)(a - b)(a - c)(a + b + c)| < M-(a2 + b2 + c2)2 ...(i) Note that this expression is symmetric, and we can therefore assume a < b < c without loss of generality.

The 2.95% interest on credit card is actually 46.7%
So far, though not for long, banks have been advertising a monthly interest rate for their cards like, say, 2.95 per cent. If you rolled over your clues, that's the interest you would pay in a month. If you didn't pay, you would think that you would pay an interest rate of 35.4 per cent (2.95 • 12). Well, it's about 11 percentage points m o r e for two reasons. ()ne. in what is a little-known fact, you also have to pay a 10.2 per cent service tax. So. the 2.95 per cent monthly rate becomes 3.25 per cent. On an outstanding of Rs. 100. your interest cost in the first month will be Rs 3.25. Two. the interest gets compounded monthly. So. in the second month, interest will be calculated not on the original amount of Rs. 100. but on the previous month's balance of Rs. 103.25. So. for month two your interest cost will be Rs. 3.35, not Rs. 3.25. If you rolled o\ cr credit, your total annual cost because of the service tax and the compounding effect: 46.7 per cent. Mighty expensive, no?

151 2 D D 7
By Alok kumar, B.Tech, IIX Kanpur The Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Kolkata, is considered as one of the foremost centres in the world for training and research in statistics and the related sciences. The B.Stat (Hons) degree program, the flagship programme of the institute, offers comprehensive instruction in the theory, method and application of statistics, in addition to several areas of Mathematics and some basic areas of computer science. Each candidate applying for admission to this programme has to take a selection test comprising Objective type and Short-answer type questions in mathematics at the Higher Secondary level (10 + 2 year's programme). The selection tests consists of (1) A multiple choice type test having about 30 questions, and (2) A short-answer type test having about 10 questions. Questions will be set on the following and related topics. Algebra : Sets, operations on sets, prime numbers, factorization of integers and divisibility, rational and irrational numbers, permutations and combinations, binomial theorem, logarithms, theory of quadratic equations, polynomial and remainder theorem, arithmetic and geometric progressions, inequalities involving A.M., G.M., and H.M., complex numbers. Geometry : Plane geometry of class X level. Geometry of 2 dimensions with cartesian and polar co-ordinates. Concept of a locus, equation of a line, angle between two lines, distance from a point to a line. Areas of a triangle, equations of a circle, parabola, ellipse and hyperbola and equations of their tangents and normals, mensuration. Trigonometry : Measures of angles, trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, trigonometric identities including addition formulae, solutions of trigonometric equations. Properties of triangles, heights and distances. Calculus : Functions, one-one functions, onto functions, limits and continuity, derivatives and methods of differentiation, slope and curve, tangents and normals, maxima and minima, use of calculus in sketching graph of functions, methods of integration, definite and indefinite integrals, evaluation of area using integrals. Logical Reasoning : Consistency of statements. In response to growing demand from students preparing for the ISI, we bring to you the first Mock ISI paper, which closely simulates the real exam. There is more to follow in the coming months.

Rewrite a as

a = 4 6 7 3 + 673 4 = 4-4 672 + 673 4 = 4(4' 6 8 ) 4 + 673 4 = 4a 4 + b 4 (say) Where a = 4 1 6 8 , b = 673 Observe that 4 a 4 + b4 can be factorised 4a 4 + b* = (2a 2 ) 2 + (b2)2 + 2(2a2)(b2) - 4a2b2 = (2a2 + b2)2 - (2ab) 2 = (2a 2 + 2ab + b2) (2a2 - 2ab + b2) implying that a is composite, viz, a has a factor (say) b2 + 2ab + 2a 2 (i.e.) (673) 2 + 2-4 168 • 673 + 2 • (4 1 5 8 ) 2 P can also be written in the form P = 4»9 + 9294 = 4.(4232)4 + 9294 Showing that P is composite too. 13. (d) : Look at the equation (x2 + 3* + 4) 2 + 3(x 2 + lx + 4) + 4 = x for a while and your powers of observation tell you that it can be written as f ( f ( x ) ) = x ! where f ( x ) = x2 + 3x + 4 consider the equation f ( x ) = x, i.e. x2 + 3x + 4 = x => x2 + 2x + 4 = 0 D = 22-4X4<O Showing that f ( x ) = x has no real solutions. So the binomial f ( x ) - x is always +ve or always - v e . Assume f ( x ) -x > 0 v x e R. i.e. f ( x ) > x v x e R. Setting f ( x ) in place of x, as f ( x ) eR, we have / ( f (*)) > f ( x ) > x, from the above equation establishing that f(f(x))>x Thus when f ( x ) = x has no real solution, / ( f (x)) = x d o e s n ' t have either. 14. (c) : We embed the problem in a more general one and look at the expression. f(h) = h2 + (h+ 1 ) 2 + {h(h + l)} 2 = h2 + h2 + 2h + 1 + h2 (h2 + 2h + 1)

13 Vl69 9. (a) : For n = 3, the numbers w, « + 4, n + 14 yield 3, 7, 17 and they are all prime. We claim that for no other value of n are n, n + 4, n + 14 all prime. Recall that any prime p > 5 can be written in the form 6k + 1, k> 1. When n = 6k + 1 n, n + 4, n + 14 = 6k + 1, 6k + 5, 6k + 15, of which 6k + 15 = 3(2k + 5) is composite. When n = 6 k - \ n, n + 4, n + 14 = 6k - 1, 6k - 3, 6k - 13, of which 6k - 3 = 3(2k - 1) is composite. Hence only for n = 3 are the numbers n, n + 4, n + 14 all prime. 10. (b) : The idea behind the solution is to prove that at least one factor in the product is even. Of the numbers 1, 2, 3, 169, exactly 85 are odd. Again as the a/s consist of the numbers from 1 to 169 because a's are simply a permutation of 1,2, 3,.... 169, we have a m o n g a/s also 85 odd numbers. Both the sets { 1 , 2 , , 169} and { a , , a 2 , . . . , a I 6 8 } have together 170 odd numbers. Thus among the 169 factors ( a , - l ) , (a2 — 2), (a3 - 3), (a 1 6 9 - 169) We have 170 odd numbers. Accordingly some factor say ak - k h a s b o t h the n u m b e r s o d d i m p l y i n g ak - k is even and so is the entire product. 11. (d) : Write 1234 in base 7 1234 = 3 x 343 + 4 x 49 + 7 + 2 = 3x73 + 4x72 + 7 + 2 = (3412) 7 Highest power of 7 in |1234 is 1234 1234 1234 : 176 + 25 + 3 = 204 49 . 343 62

(d) : Let n = (am am_, a,-a 0 ) 10 where a0, a,, am are digits of positive integer n be the decimal representation of n. n-Sn=(am • 10m + a m _, ( 1 0 - 1 + .... + a, • 10 + a 0 ) -ia,n+am-, + -... +a, + a0) = am (10'" - 1) + a m _, (10 m_1 - 1)+..+«,(10-1) .... (1) As every number of the form 10* - 1 is divisible by 1 0 - 1 (=9), we conclude from (1) that n - Sn is divisible by 9. But n - Sn is given to be 1234 which is not divisible by 9. Hence no such n exists. 16. (a) : We establish that the sequence can't have more than 17 terms. Assume to the contrary that the sequence has more than 17 terms. Consider the first 18 terms. a, + a2 + a3 + a 4 + a} + a6 > 0 a2 + a3 + + an > 0 «13 «U + «18 Adding coloumnwise (a, + a2 + ... + an) + (a 2 + ... + a ] 4 ) + ... .... (a6 + ... + a 1 8 ) > 0 But since the sum of every 13 consecutive terms is n e g a t i v e , t h e sum on the left c a n ' t be positive. Impossible. Hence the sequence can have at the most 17 terms. 17. (c) : Let 2 4 + 2 7 + 2" = m2, m being an integer => 16 + 1 2 8 + 2" = w 2 => 2" = m 2 - 144 = (m - 12) (m + 12) From the above it follows that m - 12 and m + 12 are both powers of 2. Also (m + 1 2 ) - (m- 12) = 24. So the problem amounts to finding two powers of 2 whose difference is 24. Observe 2' = 2, 2 2 = 4, 2 3 = 8, 2 4 = 16, 2 s = 32, 2 6 = 64, 2 7 = 128 We have 2 s - 2 3 = 24 and as 2" grows rapidly, we can't

+ + >0

have a pair other than (2 5 /2 3 ) having a difference of 24. Consequently m - 12 = 8 and m + 12 = 32 giving m = 20 and 2" = 32 x 8 = 250 = 2 s .-. n = 8. Accordingly there is just one value of n that makes 2 4 + 2 7 + 2" a perfect square. 18. (b) : As 8 doesn't appear in 1000, we have to count the number of times 8 occurs when we list the integers from 1 to 999. Now any number from 1 to 999 can be thought of as ata2a3 where 0 < a,, a2, a3 < 9. For example the numbers 81 and 4 will be written as 081 and 004 respectively in this system of representation. Let us first count the numbers in which 8 occurs exactly once. Since 8 can occur in,any of the places, we have three ways for it corresponding to every occurrence of 8, other two places can be filled with the remaining numbers in 8 ways each. So number of such type of numbers = 3 x 9 x 9 = 243. Again 8 can occur in exactly two places in 3 C2 = 3 ways. The remaining place can be filled in 9 ways. So there are 27 (= 9 x 3) such numbers. Finally, 8 can occur in all three places in just one way, viz 888. Number of times 8 occurs in all the numbers from 1 to 1000 = 243+ 2 x 2 7 + 3 x 1 = 2 4 3 + 54 + 3 = 300 19. (a) : First of all observe that the function is defined only when 4 - x2 > 0 => x2 < 4 => |x| < 2. Denoting V4-x by t, we have t= so t e [0, 2] Note that t has to be positive. The problem of finding the extreme values of f ( x ) amounts to finding the extreme values of g(t) where g(t) = (3 - t)2 + (1 + t)3 for the closed interval [0, 2] g»(/) = - 2 ( 3 - 0 + 3(1 +2t+t2) 2 = 3f + St - 3 = (f + 3 ) ( 3 / - l ) For extreme values g'(t) = 0 => (t + 3) (3t - 1) = 0 , . - 3 . }

Also g"(t) = 6t + 8 = 2(31 + 4) g"(-3) = - 10 < 0 :.t = - 3 is a point of maxima. ^ ' ( j ) = 10 > 0 / = is a point of minima. g(t).

But t = - 3 is not in the domain of

(a) : Our first reaction on seeing the problem is to w r i t e / ( x ) a s / ( x ) = x4 + a,* 3 + a^r + a 3 x + a4 and then attempt to find the constants with the help of / ( I ) , / ( 2 ) etc. This idea, beside being unattractive, can't be put to use when the number of unknowns increases. Instead we construct an auxiliary function. g(x) =/(*) - 2x So that g ( l ) = / ( l ) - 2 = 0 Similarly g( 2) = g(3) = 0 As g(x) is a polynomial of degree 4 having 1, 2, 3 as its three zeros. Assume the fourth zero to be a . Then we can write g(x) = ( x - l ) ( x - 2 ) ( x - 3 ) ( x - a ) =>/(x) - 2 x = ( x - l ) ( x - 2 ) ( x - 3 ) ( x - a ) Let x = 10 and - 6 successively to obtain /(10)-20 = 9 x 8 x 7(10-a) / ( - 6 ) + 12 = (-7)(-8)(-9)(-6 - a ) = 9 x 8 x 7 (6 + a ) A d d i n g / ( 1 0 ) + / ( - 6 ) - 8 = 9 x 8 x 7 x 16 = 8064 . - . / ( 1 0 ) + / ( - 6 ) = 8072. 21.

let's play by the rule. We choose 3, 4 as our a and b in the first move. Then the original set {3, 4, 12} transforms to {0.8 x 3 - 0.6 * 4, 0.6 x 3 + 0.8 x 4, 12} But we needn't evaluate them exactly. Instead observe that (0.8a - 0.6b) 2 + (0.6a + 0 . 8 b f = (0.8 2 + 0.6 2 ) (a 2 + b2) = a 2 + b2 Thus at any stage of operation, sum of square of numbers of the triplet = constant = 3 2 + 4 2 + 122 = 5 2 + 122 = 132 = 169 That is, no matter how many times we perform the operation on the set {3, 4, 12}, the triplets generated will always have their sum of squares as 169. But 3 2 + 4 2 + 5 2 * 169 5 2 + 122 + 3 2 * 169 3 2 + 4 2 + 132 * 169 So none of these n u m b e r can be reached by the operation described.

from the next academic year The HRD Ministry has informed Bihar and Andhra Pradesh that admissions to the two new IITs will start in temporary campuses, while the ministry sets up new campuses. The new campus w i l l be build around 100 kilometers from Patna in Bihar and Isnapur in Medak district of Andhra Pradesh. The campuses will be build in an area of 500-600 acres at a cost of Rs. 1,800 crore. In a letter to the chief secretaries of the two state governments, the HRD ministry has asked for makeshift campuses so t h a t enrolment of students can start. "Only a few students for limited disciplines will be admitted in the first year and temporary campuses will be linked to an existing IIT," a ministry official said. However, IIT aspirants in Rajasthan might not be as fortunate. "No final decision has been taken as to where an IIT will come up in Rajasthan," a senior ministry official said. The ministry had announced new IITs for Bihar, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan in 2006-07. There is a debate over whether an IIT should come up in the education city of Kota or somewhere near Jaipur. Since the location of the proposed IIT in Rajasthan has not yet been decided, the Centre has held back its final decision, a ministry official said. A committee headed by the ministry's joint secretary Ravi Mathur had visited the proposed sites in Rajasthan but no final decision has been taken.

Bengal students best at maths: NCERT survey
New Delhi: One of the country's most stringent surveys of learning abilities of class V students by NCERT has found that West Bengal is on top, followed by Karnataka, Gujarat, Jharkhand and Tripura, Uttar Pradesh has also made rapid strides making it to the sixth position. The survey, which was conducted in 6,828 schools, 79% of them in rural areas, across 266 districts of 33 states and which tested 84,322 students in environment science, maths and language, found that there was a small overall increase (60.31 % from 58.87%) in language ability and mathematics (46.51% to 48.46%) in the learning abilities in 2007 from the baseline survey carried out in 2001-02. Bihar and Lakshadweep did not participate in the survey. While students in many states had increased learning achievement, among the performing states, the story ofTamil Nadu needed to be singled out. Due to poor performance of students in three districts—Karur, Thrivanamalai and Vellore—the state's mean average came down significantly from the baseline survey of 2001-02. The survey gave 40 questions in each subject. In mathematics, the students were asked questions on highest common factor/lowest common factor, average, profit and loss, simple interest, measurement, fraction and decimal, percent and geometry. In language, questions on structure of sentence, spelling, comprehension of informative passage and story were asked. In EVS, 20 questions each were on social science and science. In mathematics, the mean average of West Bengal students was 60% to 70%. In fact, Bengal was the only state in this category. Class V students of Gujarat, Jharkhand, Karnataka, TN, Tripura and UP-had a mean average of 50% to 60%. Students of most of the other states had a mean average of 40% to 50%. These included states like Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, J&K, Kerala, Punjab and Delhi. In Chhatisgarh, Goa and Andaman, class V students had a mean average of less than 40%. However, in EVS, Karnataka was on top with a mean average of 60% to 70%. West Bengal students had a mean average of 50% to 60%. Students of class V seemed to have a flair for language. The survey showed that students in 14 states had a mean average of 60% to 70%. Delhi students, lower down in other subjects, were in this category along with West Bengal, Gujarat, UP, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Orissa, Jharkhand, Himachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Manipur and Chandigarh. Other states had a mean average of 50% to 60%. SCORE CARD
