How to solve difficult Time and Work problems in simpler steps, type 3


In a large number of math problems involving Time and Work, when more than one group of workers each comprising of a certain number of members, complete a job taking their own time, and the question is to find time taken by similar groups of workers but with different number of members, worker equivalence method invariably leads to much faster conceptual solution with greatly reduced calculation load...

Componendo dividendo applied on number system and ratio proportion problems


Because of the easy systematic steps most likely we would be able to solve a problem quickly and wholly in mind by Componendo dividendo. In this session we have shown how problems not directly conforming to the Componendo dividendo can still be solved quickly using the concepts of Componendo dividendo...

Componendo dividendo in Algebra

thumb_componendo dividendo in algebra

We have seen Componendo dividendo to simplify competitive math problems in many topics so much so that the problems could usually be solved in mind. In this session we will highlight the power and elegance of the three-step simple process in the area of Algebra with three examples...

How to solve arithmetic boundary condition problems in a few simple steps


A simple or compound event (consisting of more than one event) goes on happening systematically at regular intervals till a point just before the end. With each occurrence of the event problem parameters change. The end is reached before the full impact of the event along with the change can happen. This is the boundary to be found out before solving the problem...

How to solve Time and Work problems in simpler steps, type 2 brief


In 42 days 40 men complete a work. As it happened, instead of all of them working together to finish the job, they started working together, but at the end of every 10th day 5 men left. In how many days would then the work be completed? Rich time and work concept of Mandays technique along with natural number concepts deliver speedy solution...

A man sells two wrist watches one at a profit of 30% and another at a loss of 30%, but each at a same selling price of Rs.400. The net profit or loss is to be found out. This type of problem can be solved following clear steps based on basic and rich concepts of profit and loss within a minute with ease...

Basic and rich concepts on Moving Escalator to solve difficult Speed Time and distance problems in a few steps

thumb_escalator time distance problems

Usually time and distance problems involve objects moving on fixed stationary ground base. When the base starts moving, an additional level of complexity is introduced. These are problem areas favorable for applying very basic relative speed concepts and arrive at solution in a few steps...

Basic and Rich Percentage Concepts for solving difficult SSC CGL problems

thumb percentage concepts

In business world, academics, Science and technology, or daily life, use of the concept of Percentage is ubiquitous and all-pervading. Because of its apparent simplicity though, this concept is taken for granted with not much emphasis on its elaboration and explanation....
