How to solve a School Math problem in a few direct steps, Trigonometry 5

thumb_How to solve a school math problem in a few direct steps rigonometry5

After crossing the first barrier in the process of proving a Trigonometric identity, if you go straight ahead without looking at the goal state on the RHS, you might reach a situation where you would have to start again from the goal state expression and backtrack to the simple result you had reached on the first go, not only an awkward solution but also technically an invalid one....

Reverse cheque puzzle

thumb_reverse cheque puzzle

Bhabababu received double the money he wrote in his cheque... His alert mind quickly got to the heart of the mystery. It was a simple but grave mistake made by the cashier...but again, Bhabababu knew what he wrote in his cheque, you don't. Nevertheless, if you devote a bit of interested time, you would surely know. It is not difficult on the surface...

thumb_SSC CGL solution set 52 average1

This is the 52nd question set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL exam and 1st exclusively on topic Averages. For maximum gains, the test should be taken first, that is obvious. But more importantly, to absorb the concepts, techniques and deductive reasoning elaborated through these solutions, one must solve many problems in a systematic manner using this conceptual analytical approach. One can learn well only by practicing learning by doing...

How to solve a hard CAT level Time and Work problem in a few confident steps 3

thumb_How to solve a hard CAT level time work problem in a few confident steps3

The conventional approach to math problem solving relies heavily on manipulation of terms using low level mathematical constructs without using the problem solving abilities of the student. Following only this approach to solving problems, students may tend to become used to mechanical and procedural thinking suppressing their inherent creative and innovative out-of-the-box thinking abilities. On the other hand, conceptual reasoning without firm mathematical base leads to confusion. In solving hard problems you need to strike a balance. In this third session on hard problem solving we have shown again how to do it...
