Geometry- Circle and its propertiesby Total Gadha- Sunday, 12 August 2007, 01:48 AM
Before all the CAT 2007 aspirants give up on me, here is another big chapter on geometry to whet their appetite for CAT quant. CAT 2008 aspirants are alsoadvised to assimilate the following theorems and results into their system as the present chapter covers one of the most important topics in MBA entrance examcircles. Time and again, I have been told that students either have a knack for geometry or they dont. During my three years as a quant instructor, I haveseen many instructors and students who could not make head or tail of geometry in the beginning, but who worked hard at memorizing and practicing all thetheorems and slowly became very good at it, and developed the required visualization powers. One thing is for sure; if you aspire to do an MBA, you are surelynot escaping from geometry. And here comes one more heavy geometry dose- circles.

Hi Total genious,
I am new to this forum. Remarkably effort you have put in to ease our pain.
I couldn't find all the quant's lessons in a single zipped file like "download it now". It is needed when C day is near n u want to have a glimpse of all the fundamentals of quants.I think u understandwhat i need.
pls take some pain n do it also. I have become really ur fan. Hats off.....

hi tg...( a question)
gud work!! but i also wanted u to include some more fundas like when two tangents r drawn to the circle from the common point....how to find tat included angle (for eg if PT and PG are tangents to
circle from comm. pt P then how do i get angle GPT). HOPE U WILL ANSWER ME!!
Show parent| Re
Re: Geometry- Circle and its propertiesby Total Gadha- Thursday, 16 August 2007, 08:48 PM
Hi Dipti,
Let O be the centre. The angle between the tangents, PG and PT, is = 180 - angle GOT
Angle GOT has to be found by the conditions given.

I just went through this article and I think, as of yet, its my favourite!! There are many times when I would use equation to arrive at the answers (like in the problem which is the example for the ru
AP x PB = CP x PD), but you've have solved them so elegantly and with such few steps!! Please do keep 'em coming!!

Re: Geometry- Circle and its propertiesby Vipul Patki- Thursday, 3 April 2008, 03:15 PM
Hi TG,
When I appeared for my CBSE Xth std exam (in 1998), I studied from the so-called "old syllabus". The new syllabus came into effect somewhere in 2004. I am studying from online NCERT textbooks of ninth and tenth standards and I am findingthem a lot different from the old books. A few theorems like that of the ratio in which the centroid divides the median and problems like the Simpsons line are missing. Also he language seems to be a lot more informal making it seem lerigorous. I am unable to get old syllabus books from the bookstores or from my school libraries.
I am currently out of India and will be returning only after July. Can I continue to study from the online textbooks? Please help

Just see the figure attached below:
You are to just (I hope you can) visualise or realise that yellow triangle is equilateral and thus yellow + green area is 1/6th of circle with radius 5.
Now calculate whatever area you want to.
[prerequisite - you must know how to calculate area of equ ilateral t riangle of given side and area of circle with given radius.]

Re: Geometry- Circle and its propertiesby Arpit Jain- Monday, 17 October 2011, 03:07 AM
Sir, in this question
I am getting answer as 67.5 degree.angle(ADB)=90 (angle in semicircle)angle(DOB)=180-angle(AOD)=135now,in triangle OBDangle(OBD)=1/2angle(AOD)=22.5 (angle subtended by arc at the center is double the angle subtended by it at any point on the remaining part of the circumference)so,angle(BDO)=180-(135+22.5)=22.5no,angle(ADB)=90 (angle in semicircle)so angle(ADO)=angle(ADC)=90-angle(ODB)=90-22.5=67.5 degree.
Sir,what am I doing here?Please clarify..

Hi Arpit
You have (wrongly) assumed O to be center of the circle. But O is only intersection of AB and CD.

hi,can someone pls help me out with this question?:
From a point outside a circle of radius 15 cm, two tangents are drawn to the circle. The angle between the tangents is 74. Find the area of the triangle formed by the tangents and the chord joiningthe points of contact. (sin37 = 0.6)
a)384 cm2b)96 cm2c)192 cm2d)225 cm2
Show parent| Re
Re: Geometry- Circle and its properties
by Anindya Basu- Friday, 20 June 2014, 03:38 PM
sin 37 = 0.6=> cos 37 = 0.8
1/2 of chord = radius x cos 37 = 15 x 0.8 = 12
length of tangent x sin 37 = 12=> length of tangent = 12/0.6 = 20
=> height of target triangle = 20 x cos 37 = 16
Area of triangle = 1/2 x 24 x 20 = 192

Hi Prateek
Can you see the shape formed by Yellow + Green region combined?
It is a sector..isn't it?
Ok. Now tell me the method/formula to find area of a sector.. and secondly do you have all necessary information to find area of this sector?
Hope it helps.
