Class – X Mathematics Formulae & some basic concepts
Compound Interest
 S.I = PRT/100
 Amt = P ( 1 + Rate/100 )Time i.e. A = P ( 1 + R/100 )n (where Time or n is
no. of years)
 Note : If you are asked to compute the interest semi-annually ( Half
yearly) the above formula is to
be modified, by taking time × 2, and (rate/2) , A = P ( 1 + R/200 )²n
(where n is no. of years)
 If the rates are given differently for the consecutive years, then
For example if the rates are 8 % , 12 % and 15 % respectively, then
 Amt = P ( 1 + 8/100 ) ( 1 + 12/100 ) ( 1 +15/100 ) (Here, you need not
mention time as exponent.)
 Depreciation Certain item’s value get diminished as time passes, then it
is known as depreciation.
For example the value of a car, refrigerator, machinery etc. in that case:
Final Value of machine = Initial value ( 1 – Rate/100 )Time
 In population growth problems, If present population is given and
asking for
i) The population ‘n’ yrs ago, then take Amount as ‘Present population’,
and find ‘Principal’
ii) The population after ‘n’ yrs, then take Principal as ‘Present population’,
and find ‘Amount’
Sales Tax & VAT
 Selling price = Marked price + x % of sales tax. OR S.P. = M.P.( 1+ST% /
100 )
 Selling price = Marked price – x % Discount . OR S.P.= M.P. ( 1- D% /
100 )
 Selling price = M.P. ( 1- D% / 100 ). ( 1+ST% / 100 ) ( when sales tax
and discount both are given
)
 Tax % =( Tax / M.P.) x 100
 Discount % = ( Discount / MP.) x 100
While computing VAT
In step1 : Take manufacturing cost and Calculate VAT on Manufacturing
Cost
In step2 : Take Profit 1, and Calculate VAT on Profit 1 only
In step3 : Take Profit 2, and Calculate VAT on Profit 2 only
In step4 : Take Profit 3, and Calculate VAT on Profit 3 only .
( + ) Add all to get Total VAT
Selling price = Manufacturing cost +Profit 1 +Profit 2 + Profit 3 etc., +
Total VAT

irrespective of the total number of months given. Basement. a) Either by splitting the terms. Quadratic Equations Note: To find the value of ‘x’ you may adopt either ‘splitting the middle term’ or ‘formula method’. unless specified the method.D-19 Sanjay Kumar (9899199876) . the HCF value which gives you the value of LCM. take time as 1/12. instead of total no of months.D-19 Sanjay Kumar (9899199876) www. then you have to take the last entry of the previous month (Here at times there is chance of making mistake. N.com 2  If entry of a particular month is not given. In step3 : Take the product of All the terms . it may be factorized by using ‘Trial & Error” method. Product of LCM x HCF = Product of the two polynomials. While computing the interest always take time as 1/12.e in PRT / 100. Market Value of one share  ‘Income’ of a person may be taken as the ‘Dividend’ given by the company.ststutorials. Step To Success Tutorials (…Widen your knowledge horizons…) . B – 118. Kalkaji.= (a2 + b2 ) (a2 – b2 ) = (a2 + b2 ) (a – b ) (a + b ) (v) (a + b)3 = a3 + b3 + 3ab (a +b) (vi) a3 + b3 = (a + b)( a2 + ab + b2) (vii) (a – b)3 = a3 – b3 – 3ab (a – b ) (viii) a3 – b3 = (a – b)( a2 + ab + b2) OR use Trial & Error method. i. choose the value from the question. Step To Success Tutorials (…Widen your knowledge horizons…) . B – 118. N. (OR) b) Using these formulae (i) (a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2 (ii) (a – b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2 (iii) a2 – b2 = (a + b)(a – b) (iv) a4 – b4 = (a2 ) 2 – (b2 ) 2. Omit. therefore Income % = Income × 100 Or Income % = Dividend Received × 100 Investment Total Investment HCF & LCM of polynomials In step1 : Factorize the given polynomials. Basement. Note: If cubical expression is given.)  I f you are asked to find the amount that will be obtained on closing the account Then take last entry(of the month in which account has been closed) + Interest obtained ( But DO NOT take the Total principal ) Recurring Deposits : Shares & Dividends  Dividend = [x % of Face Value] × No of shares ( where x is dividend% )  No of shares = Total Investment . In step2 : Take the product of ‘Common terms’ as their HCF. Kalkaji.

If not taken answer can’t be found. then the roots are Real & unequal or unique.therefore x = 2.0) (x-co ordinate & y-co ordinate both changes in sign )  Invariant point : Any point is invariant with respect to a given line if and only if it lies on the line. or  In origin (0. Incase of continued proportion : a/b = b/c = k hence. parallel lines Reflection  After plotting the points. Continued Proportion a : b = b : c. lines are intersecting. Note: when x = y.www. then you may assume as a/b = c/d = e/f = k Therefore a = b.com 3  If roots of an equation are given. e = f. then substitute the values of ‘a’ ‘b’ and ‘c’ in the given problem. then : Quadratic Equation : x² – (sum of the roots).) If (x-2) leaves a remainder of 4 p(2) : 5(2)² + 3(2) – 6 = 4 ( Here taking =4 is very important.ststutorials. b = ck therefore putting the value of b we can get a = ck² & b = ck. and then take the same distance on the other side to obtain it’s reflection. (Middle value is repeated) 1st 2nd 3rd 4th proportionals 1st 2nd 2nd 3rd proportionals  Product of ‘Means’(Middle values) = Product of ‘Extremes’(Either end values)  If is given.k.) . If not taken answer can’t be found. For eg if a point is invariant on x-axis then it must lie on x-axis. assume that there is a “mirror” and the point is to be reflected either :  In X-axis ( x-co ordinate remains same but y-co ordinate changes in sign). then the roots are Imaginary (not real). then use ruler to measure the vertical distance of the point from the line. Ratio & Proportion  Duplicate ratio of a : b is a2 : b2 ( Incase of Sub-duplicate ratio you have to take ‘Square root’)  Triplicate ratio of a : b is a3 : b3 ( Incase of Sub-triplicate ratio you have to take ‘Cube root’)  Proportion a : b = c : d.

A Rhombus has 2 lines of symmetry.  The angle subtended at the centre by an arc = Double the angle at any part of the circumference of the circle.ststutorials. A Regular Polygon with ’n’ sides has ‘n’ lines of symmetry. then find the radius first (Have you made mistake earlier by taking ‘d’ as ‘radius’ and solved the problem ?) .5. If diameter of a circle is given.  Number of revolutions = Total distance moved .( R2 – r2 )  Distance moved by a wheel in one revolution = Circumference of the wheel. Kalkaji. 7. In addition to these points. the above two points are good enough. If a tangent is drawn and a chord is drawn from the point of contact. then angle made between the chord and the tangent = Angle made in the alternate segment. Note: While solving ‘Mensuration’ problems. Circumference & Area of a Circle  Area of a Circle = π r2. You should have the basic knowledge of geometrical constructions. For solving most of the ‘Locus’ problems. bisects the chord of the circle. B – 118.  Area of ring = π. Triangle has 3 lines of symmetry.  The ‘Locus’ of an angle is it’s Angle bisector.
