### UPSC CSAT Formula

Algebraic Identities

•  n(n + l)(2n + 1) is always divisible by 6.
•  32n leaves remainder = 1 when divided by 8
• n3 + (n + 1 )3 + (n + 2 )3 is always divisible by 9
• 102n + 1 + 1 is always divisible by 11
• n(n2- 1) is always divisible by 6
• n2+ n is always even
• 23n-1 is always divisible by 7
• 152n-1 +l is always divisible by 16
• n3 + 2n is always divisible by 3
• 34n – 4 3n is always divisible by 17
• n! + 1 is not divisible by any number between 2 and n(where n! = n (n – l)(n – 2)(n – 3)…….3.2.1)
• for eg 5! = 5.4.3.2.1 = 120 and similarly 10! = 10.9.8…….2.1= 3628800
• The product of n consecutive numbers is always divisible by n!.
• If n is a positive integer and p is a prime, then np – n is divisible by p.
• |x| = x if x ≥ 0 and |x| = – x if x ≤ 0.
• Minimum value of a2.sec2Ɵ + b2.cosec2Ɵ is (a + b)2; (0° < Ɵ < 90°)for eg. minimum value of 49 sec2Ɵ + 64.cosec2Ɵ is (7 +2 = 225.
• Among all shapes with the same perimeter a circle has the largest area.
• If one diagonal of a quadrilateral bisects the other, then it also bisects the quadrilateral.
• sum of all the angles of a convex quadrilateral = (n – 2)180°
• Number of diagonals in a convex quadrilateral = 0.5n(n – 3)
• let P, and Q are the midpoints of the nonparallel sides BC and AD of a trapezium ABCD. Then,
• ΔAPD = ΔCQB.
• a2 – b2 = (a + b)(a – b)
• a2 + b2 + c2 + 2(ab + bc + ca) = (a + b + c)2
• (a ± b)2 = a2 + b2± 2ab
• (a + b + c + d)2 = a2 + b2 + c2 + d2 + 2(ab + ac + ad + bc + bd + cd)
• (a ± b)3 = a3 ± b3 ± 3ab(a ± b)
• (a ± b)(a2 + b2 m ab) = a3 ± b3
• (a + b + c)(a2 + b2 + c2 -ab – bc – ca) = a3 + b3 + c3 – 3abc =
• 1/2 (a + b + c)[(a – b)2 + (b – c)2 + (c – a)2]
•  when a + b + c = 0, a3 + b3 + c3 = 3abc
• (x + a)(x + b) (x + c) = x3 + (a + b + c) x2 + (ab + bc + ac)x + abc
• (x – a)(x – b) (x – c) = x3 – (a + b + c) x2 + (ab + bc + ac)x – abc
• a4 + a2b2 + b4 = (a2 + ab + b2)( a2 – ab + b2)
• a4 + b4 = (a2 – √2ab + b2)( a2 + √2ab + b2)
• an + bn = (a + b) (a n-1 – a n-2 b +  a n-3 b2 – a n-4 b3 +…….. + b n-1)(valid only if n is odd)
• an – bn = (a – b) (a n-1 + a n-2 b +  a n-3 b2 + a n-4 b3 +……… + b n-1){were n ϵ N)
• (a ± b)2n is always positive while -(a ± b)2n is always negative, for any real values of a and b
• (a – b)2n = (b – a)2” and (a – b)2n+1 = – (b – a)2n+1
• if α and β are the roots of equation ax2 + bx + c = 0, roots of cx” + bx + a = 0 are 1/α and 1/β. if α and β are the roots of equation ax2 + bx + c = 0, roots of ax2 – bx + c = 0 are -α and -β.

Divisibility Rule

• An even number or a number with an even last digit, such as 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8.
• The number should be divisible by 3 when the sum of all its digits is considered.
• The result of the number’s last two digits must be either 00 or a multiple of 4.
• Numbers with the digits 0 or 5 in the ones place.
• A number that can be divided by both 2 and 3
• Multiple of 7 is obtained by deducting twice the number’s last digit from the other   digits.
• The sum of a number’s last three digits must be divisible by 8 or equal to 000.
• The number should be divisible by 9 when the sum of all its digits is considered.
• Any number with the digit 0 in the ones position.
•  A number is divisible by 11 when the sums of its alternative digits differ from each other.
•  A number that can be divided by 3 and 4.

#### Profit Loss: Formulas

• Cost Price = Selling Price ( No profit No loss)
• Gain Percentage = (Gain × 100)/(C.P.)
• Loss Percentage = (Loss × 100)/(C.P.)
• Profit, P = SP – CP; SP>CP
• Loss, L = CP – SP; CP>SP
• P% = (P/CP) x 100
• L% = (L/CP) x 100
• SP = {(100 + P%)/100} x CP
• SP = {(100 – L%)/100} x CP
• CP = {100/(100 + P%)} x SP
• CP = {100/(100 – L%)} x SP
• Discount = MP – SP
• SP = MP -Discount
• For false weight, profit percentage will be P% = [(True weight – false weight)/ false weight] x 100.
• When there are two successful profits, say m% and n%, then the net percentage profit equals to [m+n+(mn/100)]
• When the profit is m%, and loss is n%, then the net % profit or loss will be: [m-n-(mn/100)]
• If a product is sold at m% profit and then again sold at n% profit then the actual cost price of the product will be: CP = [100 x 100 x P/(100+m)(100+n)]. In case of loss, CP = [100 x 100 x L/(100-m)(100-n)]
• If P% and L% are equal then, P = L and %loss = P2/100
