**IMPORTANT MATHS FORMULAE**

Algebra:

- (a + b)
^{2}= a^{2}+ 2ab + b^{2} - (a – b)
^{2}= a^{2}– 2ab + b^{2} - (a + b) (a – b) = a
^{2}– b^{2} - (x + a)(x + b) = x
^{2}+ (a + b)x + ab - (x + a)(x – b) = x
^{2}+ (a – b)x – ab - (x – a)(x + b) = x
^{2}+ (b – a)x – ab - (x – a)(x – b) = x
^{2}– (a + b)x + ab - (a + b)
^{3}= a^{3}+ b^{3}+ 3ab(a + b) - (a – b)
^{3}= a^{3}– b^{3}– 3ab(a – b) - (x + y + z)
^{2 }= x^{2}+ y^{2}+ z^{2}+ 2xy + 2yz + 2xz - (x + y – z)
^{2 }= x^{2}+ y^{2}+ z^{2}+ 2xy – 2yz – 2xz - (x – y + z)
^{2}= x^{2}+ y^{2}+ z^{2}– 2xy – 2yz + 2xz - (x – y – z)
^{2}= x^{2}+ y^{2}+ z^{2}– 2xy + 2yz – 2xz - x
^{3}+ y^{3}+ z^{3}– 3xyz = (x + y + z)(x^{2}+ y^{2}+ z^{2}– xy – yz -xz) - x
^{2 }+ y^{2}= 1212 [(x + y)^{2}+ (x – y)^{2}] - (x + a) (x + b) (x + c) = x
^{3 }+ (a + b +c)x^{2}+ (ab + bc + ca)x + abc - x
^{3}+ y^{3}= (x + y) (x^{2 }– xy + y^{2}) - x
^{3}– y^{3}= (x – y) (x^{2 }+ xy + y^{2}) - x
^{2 }+ y^{2 }+ z^{2 }-xy – yz – zx = 1212 [(x-y)^{2 }+ (y-z)^{2 }+ (z-x)^{2}]

**Powers:**

a^{m}xa^{n} = a^{m+n}

aman=am−naman=am−n

(a^{m})^{n} = a^{mn}

(a^{m}b^{n})^{p} = a^{mp}b ^{np}

a^{-m} = 1am1am

amn=am−−−√namn=amn

Rules of Zero:

a^{1} = a

a^{0} = 1

a*0 = 0

a is undefined

Linear Equation:

Linear equation in one variable ax + b = 0, x = – −ba−ba

Quadratic Equation: ax^{2 }+ bx + c = 0 x = −b±b2−4ac√2a−b±b2−4ac2a

Discriminant D = b^{2 }– 4ac

Math Formulas:

When rate of discount is given Discount = MP∗Rate of Discount 100

Simple Interest = PTR100PTR100 where P = Principal, T = Time in years R = Rate of interest per annum

Principal = 100∗S.IR∗T100∗S.IR∗T

Rate = 100∗S.IP∗T100∗S.IP∗T

Time = 100∗S.IP∗R100∗S.IP∗R

Principal = Amount – Simple Interest

Discount = MP – SP
