## Percentages

The terms percent means "for every hundred".** Percentage** is a way of expressing a number as a fraction of 100. It is denoted by using the percent sign, **%**. For example, when we say a man made a profit of 20 percent we mean to say that he gained Rs. 20 for every hundred rupees he invested in the business.

## Divisibility Rules

A divisibility rule is a method to determine whether a given integer is divisible by a fixed divisor without performing the division. You can do this by examining the digits of the integer.

## Number Systems

Number Systems forms the base for Quantitative Ability and clearing of concepts is important for CAT and other related exams. A measurement carried out, of any quantity, leads to a meaningful value called the Number. This value may be positive or negative depending on the direction of the measurement and can be represented on the number line.

## Mensuration

**Mensuration** is the branch of Mathematics which deals with the study of geometric shapes, their **area**, **volume** and different parameters in geometric objects.

## Interests

The lending and borrowing of money involves the concept of simple interest and compound interest. If you borrow money for certain period of time, you would have to return the this sum of money (Principal) with some extra money. this extra money is called **Interest**.

## TS ICET Analysis

TSICET 2017 or Telangana State Integrated Common Entrance Test has been conducted on May 18, 2017 across 16 cities of Telangana. The exam was conducted in paper pencil based mode. The pattern and structure remained same as last year.

## Inequalities

A **comparison relationship** between two algebraic expressions or quantities is known as an Inequalities.

## LCM and HCF

Suppose there are two numbers - a and b. If a number *a* divides another number *b* exactly, we say that *a* is **factor** of *b* and *b* is called **multiple** of *a*.

## Circles

A circle is a locus of all points which are equidistant from a point. If O is a fixed point in a given plane, the set of points in the plane which are at equal distances from O will form a circle.

## Quadrilateral: Parallelogram

A **parallelogram** is a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides. The opposite sides are parallel and equal in length. The diagonals bisect each other.

## Quadrilateral: Square & Rectangle

A square has four equal sides and four equal angles (90 degree angles or right angles). A rectangle is a quadrilateral with 4 right angles. It is similar to square except that its sides are not equal.

## Quadrilateral

A quadrilateral is a polygon with four sides (edges) and four vertices (corners). The word quadrilateral is made of the words quad (meaning four) and lateral (meaning sides). So, quadrilateral is simply a four sided figure.

## Similar Triangles

Two figures are said to be similar, if they have the same shape but not necessarily the same size. If the angles of one triangle are equal to the angles of another triangle, then the triangles are said to be **Equiangular**. Equiangular triangles have the same shape but may have different sizes. Therefore, equiangular triangles are also called **Similar Triangles**.

## Triangles

A triangle is a polygon of three sides. Sum of the angles of a triangle is 180 degrees. Triangles are classified in two general ways: by their sides and by their angles.

## Geometry Basics

Geometry is branch of mathematics concerned with shapes, sizes and properties of figures. Geometry includes knowledge of angles, lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, circles and polygons.

## Functions

A function is a rule which indicates an operation to perform. A function is a relation between input and output. For example, there is a system, which finds the square of the given input. That means the output is a square of the given input.

## Mixtures and Alligations

Mixtures are formed when two or more quantities of different values are mixed together. Alligation is a practical method of solving arithmetic problems related to mixtures of ingredients.

## Averages

Average is defined as the ratio of sum of the quantities to the number of quantities. Average or mean is said to be a measure of central tendency. For example, average of the first five natural numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

## Participating Institutes in XAT

Apart from 11 member institutes, there are around 150 B-schools in the list of XAT participating institutes. The participating institutes consider XAT scores from eligible candidates in order to accept applications for shortlisting purpose. The candidates who clear the cutoff of a particular college are eligible for the selection rounds.
