1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + … + n = n(n + 1)/2
(12 + 22 + 32 + ..... + n2) = n ( n + 1 ) (2n + 1) / 6
(13 + 23 + 33 + ..... + n3) = (n(n + 1)/ 2)2
Sum of first n odd numbers = n2
Sum of first n even numbers = n (n + 1)
(a + b)*(a  b) = (a2  b2)
(a + b)*2 = (a2 + b2 + 2ab)
(a  b)*2 = (a2 + b2  2ab)
(a + b + c)*2 = a2 + b2 + c2 + 2(ab + bc + ca)
(a3 + b3) = (a + b)*(a2  ab + b2)
(a3  b3) = (a  b)*(a2 + ab + b2)
(a3 + b3 + c3  3abc) = (a + b + c)*(a2 + b2 + c2  ab  bc  ac)
When a + b + c = 0, then a3 + b3 + c3 = 3abc
(a + b)*n = an + (nC1)*an1b + (nC2)*an2b2 + … + (nCn1)*abn1 + bn.

Product of two numbers a and b (a*b) = Their HCF * Their LCM.But a*b*c ≠ HCF*LCM
#Note: HCF of two or more numbers is the greatest number which divide all of them without any remainder.
LCM of two or more numbers is the smallest number which is divisible by all the given numbers.
HCF of given fractions = (HCF of Numerator)/(LCM of Denominator)
HCF of given fractions = (LCM of Denominator)/(HCF of Numerator)
If d = HCF of a and b, then there exist unique integer m and n, such that > d = am + bn.
Factors and Multiples
If number a, divided another number b exactly, we say that a is a factor of b.
In this case, b is called a multiple of a.
Coprimes
Two numbers are said to be coprimes if their H.C.F. is 1.
HCF of a given number always divides its LCM.
Method 1: Prime Factors Method
Break the given numbers into prime factors and then find the product of all the prime factors common to all the numbers.
The product will be the required HCF.
Example
If you have to find the HCF of 42 and 70.
Then 42 = 2*3*7
And 72 = 2*5*7
Common factors are – 2 and 7 so, HCF = 2*7 =14.
Method 2: Division Method
Divide the greater number by the smaller number, divide the divisor by the remainder, divide the remainder by the next remainder and so on until no remainder is left. The last divisor is required HCF.
To check the complete procedure in example format, then please visit here – Number System Division and Remainder Rules.
Method 3: HCF of Large Numbers
Find the obvious common factor from both the numbers and remove it.
Also remove the prime number (if any found).
Now perform division method to remaining numbers and find the HCF.
Check out the example for better understanding.
Example
If you have to find out the HCF of 42237 and 75582.
Then first check out for the common factor –
42237 = 4693*9
75582 = 2*9*4199
Here we can remove 9 and 2 is a prime number so we can also extract this.
Now calculate with remaining numbers.
After performing Division method  4693/4199, we get the remainder 494.
Now the remainder 494 is divided by 2 but divisor 4199 is not.
So it should be proceeded further after dividing 494 by 2 i.e. 247.
Now performing division method as – 4199/247, we get the remainder as 0.
Now by multiplying 247 with 9 we can have our required HCF i.e. 247*9=2223.
Method 1: Prime Factors Method
Resolve the given numbers into their Prime Factors and then find the product of the highest power of all the factors that occur in the given numbers. The product will be the LCM.
Example
LCM of 8,12,15 and 21.
Now 8 = 2*2*2 = 2^{3}
12 = 2*2*3 = 2^{2}*3
15 = 3*5
21 = 3*7
So highest power factors occurred are – 2^{3}, 3, 5 and 7
LCM = 2^{3}*3*5*7 = 840.

Average = (Total of data) / (No. of data)
Age of New Entrant = New Average + No. of Old Members * Increase
Weight of New Person = Weight of Removed Person + No. Of Persons * Increase In Average
Number of Passed Candidates = Total Candidates * (Total Average – Failed Average) / (Passed Average – Failed Average)
Number of Failed Candidates = Total Candidates * (Passed Average – Total Average) / (Passed Average – Failed Average)
Age of New Person = Age of Removed Person – No. of Persons * Decrease in Average Age
Average after x innings = Total Score – Increment in Average * y innings
If a person travels a distance at a speed of x km/hr and the same distance at a speed of y km/hr, then the average speed during the whole journey is given by – 2xy / (x+y) km/hr.
If half of the journey is travelled at a speed of x km/hr and the next half at a speed of y km/hr, then average speed during the whole journey is 2xy / (x+y) km/hr.
If a man goes to a certain place at a speed of x km/hr and returns to the original place at a speed of y km/hr, then the average speed during up and down journey is 2xy / (x+y) km/hr.
If a person travels 3 equal distances at a speed of x km/hr, y km/hr and z km/hr respectively, then the average speed during the whole journey is 3xyz / (xy+yz+zx) km/hr.

If the current age is x, then n times the age is nx.
If the current age is x, then age n years later/hence = x + n.
If the current age is x, then age n years ago = x  n.
The ages in a ratio a : b will be ax and bx.
If the current age is x, then 1/n times the age is x/n.
Quicker Methods –
To find out son’s age, use this formula –
If t_{1} years earlier the father’s age was x times that of his son. At present the father’s age is y times that of his son. Then the present age of son will be?
Son’s Age = t_{1 }(x1) / (xy)
If present age of the father is y times the age of his son. After t_{2} years the father’s age become z times the age of his son. Then the present age of son will be? Son’s Age = (z1)t_{1 }/ (yz)
t_{1} years earlier, the age of the father was x times the age of his son. After t_{2} years, the father’s age becomes x times the age of his son. Then the present age of son will be?
Son’s Age = [(z1)t_{2 } + (x1)t_{1}] / (xz)
Son’s or Daughter’s Age = [Total ages + No. of years ago (Times  1)] / (Times+1)
Son’s or Daughter’s Age = [Total ages  No. of years ago (Times  1)] / (Times+1)
Father : Son
Present Age = x : y
T years before = a : b
Then, Son’s age = y * [ T(ab) / Difference of cross product ]
And Father’s age = x * [ T(ab) / Difference of cross product ]
When x and y trains are moving in opposite direction, then their relative speed = Speed of x + Speed of y
When x and y trains are moving in same direction, then their relative speed = Speed of x  Speed of y
When a train passes a platform, it should travel the length equal to the sum of the lengths of train & platform both.
Distance = (Difference in Distance) * [(Sum of Speed) / (Diff in Speed)]
Length of Train = [(Length of Platform) / (Difference in Time)] * (Time taken to cross a stationary pole or man)
Speed of faster train = (Average length of two trains) * [(1/Opposite Direction’s Time) + (1/Same Direction’s Time)]
Speed of slower train = (Average length of two trains) * [(1/Opposite Direction’s Time)  (1/Same Direction’s Time)]
Length of the train = [(Difference in Speed of two men) * T1 * T2)] / (T2T1)
Length of the train = [(Difference in Speed) * T1 * T2)] / (T1T2)
Length of the train = [(Time to pass a pole) * (Length of the platform)] / (Diff in time to cross a pole and platform)
First train’s starting point = S1 * [{(Total Distance) – S2 * (T1T2)} / (S1+S2)]
S2 = S1 * Square root of [(Time taken by first train after meeting) / (time taken by second train after meeting)]
If the speed of the boat is x and if the speed of the stream is y while upstream then the effective speed of the boat is = x  y
And if downstream then the speed of the boat = x + y
If x km/hr be the man’s rate in still water and y km/hr is the rate of the current. Then
Man’s rate with current = x + y
Man’s rate against current = x – y
A man can row x km/hr in still water. If in a stream which is flowing at y km/hr, it takes him z hrs to row to a place and back, the distance between the two places is = z * (x^{2} – y^{2}) / 2x
A man rows a certain distance downstream in x hours and returns the same distance in y hours. If the stream flows at the rate of z km/hr, then the speed of the man in still water is given by – z* (x + y) / (y  x) km/hr.
Man’s rate against current = Man’s rate with current – 2 * rate of current
Distance = Total Time * [(Speed in still water)^{2} – (Speed of current)^{2}] / 2 * (Speed in still water)
Speed in Still Water = [(Rate of Stream) * (Sum of upstream and downstream time)] / (Diff of upstream and downstream time)

If M1 persons can do W1 work in D1 days and M2 persons can do W2 work in D2 days, then the formula will be M1 * D1 * W1 = M2 * D2 * W2
If we add Time for both the groups T1 and T2 respectively, then the formula will become –M1 * D1 * T1 * W1 = M2 * D2 * T2 * W2
And if we add efficiency for both the groups E1 and E2 respectively, then the formula becomes –M1 * D1 * T1 * E1 * W1 = M2 * D2 * T2 * E2 * W2 If A can do a piece of work in x days and B can do it in y days, then A and B working together will do the same work in [(x*y)/(x+y)]
If A, B and C can do a work in x, y and z days respectively, then all of them working together can finish the work in [(x*y*z) / (xy + yz + zx)]
If A and B together can do a piece of work in x days and A can do it in y days, then B alone can do the work in (x*y) / (xy)
Original Number of Workers = (No. of more workers * No. of days taken by the second group) / No. of less days
Speed = Distance / Time
If the speed of a body is changed in the ratio a:b, then the ratio of the time taken changes in the ration b:a.
If a certain distance is covered at x km/hr and the same distance is covered at y km/hr, then the average speed during the whole journey is 2xy / (x+y) km/hr.
Required Distance = [(Product of two speeds) / (Difference of two speeds)] * Diff between arrival times.
Required Distance = Total Time Taken * [(Product of two speeds) / (Addition of two speeds)]
Distance = (2*Time*S1*S2) / (S1 + S2)
Where S1 = Speed during first half and S2 = Speed during second half of journey
Meeting point’s distance from starting point = (S1 * S2 * Difference in time) / (Difference in speed)
Distance travelled by A = 2 * Distance of two points (a / a+b)
Distance = [(Multiplication of speeds) / (Difference of Speeds)] * (Difference in time to cover the distance)
Meeting Time = (First’s starting time) + [(Time taken by first) * (2nd’s arrival time – 1st’s starting time)] / (Sum of time taken by both)
Time of rest per hour = (Difference of Speed) / (Speed without Stoppage)
Distance = (Total Time) * (Multiplication of two speeds) / (Sum of Speeds)
Speed = [2 * (Increase in speed) * (Decrease in speed)] / Difference in Increase and Decrease in Speeds

Percentage = [Value / Total Value * 100]
If two values are respectively x% and y% more than a third value, then the first is the (100+x) / (100+y) *100% of the second.
If A is x% of C and B is y% of C, then A is x/y*100% of B.
x% of quantity is taken by the first, y% of the remaining is taken by the second and z% of the remaining is taken by third person. Now is A is left in the fund then there was (A*100*100*100) / (100x) (100y) (100z) in the beginning.
x% of quantity is added. Again y% of increased quantity is added. Again z% of the increased quantity is added. Now, it becomes A, then the initial amount is given by (A*100*100*100) / (100+x) (100+y) (100+z)
If the original population of a town is P and the annual increase is r%, then the population in n years will be – P + P*r/100 = P*(1+r/100)
The population of a town is P. It increases by x% during the 1^{st} year, increases by y% during the 2^{nd} year and again increases by z% during the third year. Then, the population after 3 years will be  P*(100+x)(100+y)(100+z) / 100*100*100
When the population decreases by y% during the 2nd year, while for the 1st and 3rd years, it follows the same, the population after 3 years will be –
P*100+x)(100y)(100+z) / 100*100*100
If the price of a commodity increases by r%, then the reduction in consumption so as not to increase the expenditure, is (r/100+r) * 100%
If the price of a commodity decreases by r%, then the increase in consumption so as not to decrease the expenditure, is (r/100r) * 100%
If the first value is r% more than the second value, then the second is (r/100+r) * 100% less than the first value.
If the first value is r% less than the second value, then the second is (r/100r) * 100% more than the first value.
If the value of a number is first increased by x% and later decreased by x%, the net change is always a decrease which is equal to x% of x or x^{2}/100.
If the value of a number is first increased by x% and later decreased by y%, then there is [xy(x*y/100)] % increase or decrease, according to the =ve or –ve sign respectively.
If the order of increase and decrease is changes, the result remain unaffected.
If the value is increased by x% and y% then the final increase is [x+y+(x*y/100)] %.
If the price of a commodity is diminished by x% and its consumption is increased by y%
Or
If the price of a commodity is increased by x% and its consumption is decreased by y%
Then the effect on revenue is = [Inc. % Value – Dec. % Value – (Inc. % Value * Dec. % Value/100)].
The passing marks in an examination is x%. If a candidates who scores y marks, fails by z marks, then the max marks –
M = 100*(y+z)/x.
A candidate scoring x% in an exam fails by ‘a’ marks, while another candidate who scores y% marks gets ‘b’ marks more than the min required pass marks. Then the max marks for the exam are M = 100*(a+b) / (yx).
In measuring the sides of rectangle, one side is taken x% in excess and the other y% in deficit. The error % in area calculated from the measurement is [x – y  (x*y/100)].
If the sides of triangle, rectangle, square, circle, rhombus are increased by x%, then its area is increased by [x * (x+200) / 100] % or [2*x + (x^{2}/100)] %.
In an exam x% students failed in English and y% students failed in Maths. If z% of students failed in both,
Then the % of passed students in both subjects is = 100 – (x + y  z) or (100x) + (100y) + z.
