#### Water (Oceans)

Water (Oceans)   Can we think of life without water? It is said that the water is life. Water is an essential component of all life forms that exist over the surface of the earth. The creatures on the earth are lucky that it is a water planet, otherwise we all would have no existence. Water is a rare commodity in our solar system. There is no water on the sun or anywhere else in the solar system. The earth, fortunately has an abundant supply of water on its surface. Hence, our planet is called the 'Blue Planet'.     Hydrological Cycle Water is a cyclic resource. It can be used and re-used. Water also undergoes a cycle from the ocean to land and land to ocean. The hydrological cycle describes the movement of water on, in, and above the earth. The water cycle has been working for billions of years and all the life on earth depends on it. Next to air, water is the most important element required for the existence of life on earth. The distribution of water on earth is quite uneven. Many locations have plenty of water while others have very limited quantity. The hydrological cycle, is the circulation of water within the earth's hydrosphere in different forms i.e. the liquid, solid and the gaseous phases. It also refers to the continuous exchange of water between the oceans, atmosphere, land surface and subsurface and the organisms.   Table 13.1 shows distribution of water on the surface of the earth. About 71 per cent of the planetary water is found in the oceans. The remaining is held as freshwater in glaciers and icecaps, groundwater sources, lakes, soil moisture, atmosphere, streams and within life. Nearly 59 per cent of the water that falls on land returns to the atmosphere through evaporation from over the oceans as well as from other places. The remainder runs-off on the surface, infiltrates into the ground or a part of it becomes glacier (Figure 13.1).               Table 13.1 Water on the Earth’s surface

#### Movements of Ocean Water

Movements of Ocean Water   The ocean water is dynamic. Its physical characteristics like temperature, salinity, density and the external forces like of the sun, moon and the winds influence the movement of ocean water. The horizontal and vertical motions are common in ocean water bodies. The horizontal motion refers to the ocean currents and waves. The vertical motion refers to tides. Ocean currents are the continuous flow of huge amount of water in a definite direction while the waves are the horizontal motion of water. Water moves ahead from one place to another through ocean currents while the water in the waves does not move, but the wave trains move ahead. The vertical motion refers to the rise and fall of water in the oceans and seas. Due to attraction of the sun and the moon, the ocean water is raised up and falls down twice a day. The upwelling of cold water from subsurface and the sinking of surface water are also forms of vertical motion of ocean water.   Waves  Waves are actually the energy, not the water as such, which moves across the ocean surface. Water particles only travel in a small circle as a wave passes. Wind provides energy to the waves. Wind causes waves to travel in the ocean and the energy is released on shorelines. The motion of the surface water seldom affects the stagnant deep bottom water of the oceans. As a wave approaches the beach, it slows down.   This is due to the friction occurring between the dynamic water and the sea floor. And, when the depth of water is less than half the wavelength of the wave, the wave breaks. The largest waves are found in the open oceans. Waves continue to grow larger as they move and absorb energy from the wind.   Most of the waves are caused by the wind driving against water. When a breeze of two knots or less blows over calm water, small ripples form and grow as the wind speed increases until white caps appear in the breaking waves. Waves may travel thousands of km before rolling ashore, breaking and dissolving as surf.   A wave's size and shape reveal its origin. Steep waves are fairly young ones and are probably formed by local wind. Slow and steady waves originate from faraway places, possibly from another hemisphere. The maximum wave height is determined by the strength of the wind, i.e. how long it blows and the area over which it blows in a single direction.   Waves travel because wind pushes the water body in its course while gravity pulls the crests of the waves downward. The falling water pushes the former troughs upward, and the wave moves to a new position (Figure 14.1). The actual motion of the water beneath the waves is circular. It indicates that things are carried up and forward as the wave approaches, and down and more...

#### Biodiversity and Conservation

Biodiversity and Conservation   You have already learnt about the geomorphic processes particularly weathering and depth of weathering mantle in different climatic zones. See the Figure 6.2 in Chapter 6 in order to recapitulate. You should know that this weathering mantle is the basis for the diversity of vegetation and hence, the biodiversity. The basic cause for such weathering variations and resultant biodiversity is the input of solar energy and water. No wonder that the areas that are rich in these inputs are the areas of wide spectrum of biodiversity.   Biodiversity as we have today is the result of 2.5-3.5 billion years of evolution. Before the advent of humans, our earth supported more biodiversity than in any other period. Since, the emergence of humans, however, biodiversity has begun a rapid decline, with one species after another bearing the brunt of extinction due to overuse. The number of species globally vary from 2 million to 100 million, with 10 million being the best estimate. New species are regularly discovered most of which are yet to be classified (an estimate states that about 40 per cent of fresh water fishes from South America are not classified yet). Tropical forests are very rich in bio-diversity.   Biodiversity is a system in constant evolution, from a view point of species, as well as from view point of an individual organism. The average half-life of a species is estimated at between one and four million years, and 99 per cent of the species that have ever lived on the earth are today extinct. Biodiversity is not found evenly on the earth. It is consistently richer in the tropics. As one approaches the Polar Regions, one finds larger and larger populations of fewer and fewer species.   Biodiversity itself is a combination of two words, Bio (life) and diversity (variety). In simple terms, biodiversity is the number and variety of organisms found within a specified geographic region. It refers to the varieties of plants, animals and micro-organisms, the genes they contain and the ecosystems they form. It relates to the variability among living organisms on the earth, including the variability within and between the species and that within and between the ecosystems. Biodiversity is our living wealth. It is a result of hundreds of millions of years of evolutionary history. Biodiversity can be discussed at three levels: (i) Genetic diversity; (ii) Species diversity; (iii) Ecosystem diversity.   Genetic Diversity Genes are the basic building blocks of various life forms. Genetic biodiversity refers to the variation of genes within species. Groups of individual organisms having certain similarities in their physical characteristics are called species. Human beings genetically belong to the Homo sapiens group and also differ in their characteristics such as height, colour, physical appearance, etc., considerably. This is due to genetic diversity. This genetic diversity is essential for a healthy breeding of population of species.   Species Diversity This refers to the variety of species. It relates to the number more...

#### Notes - Mathematics Olympiads - Complex Number

Complex Number   Complex Numbers: "Complex number is the combination of real and imaginary number".   Definition: A number of the form$x+iy,$, where $x,y\in R$ and $i=\sqrt{-1}$ is called a complex number and (i) is called iota. A complex number is usually denoted by z and the set of complex number is denoted by C.   $\Rightarrow C=\{x+iy:x\in R,\,Y\in R,\,i=\sqrt{-1}\}$   For example: $5+3i,$ $-1+i,$ $0+4i,$ $4+0i$ etc. are complex numbers.   Note: Integral powers of iota (i)   since $i=\sqrt{-1}$ hence we have ${{i}^{2}}=-1,$ and ${{i}^{4}}=1.$   Conjugate of a complex number: If a complex number $z=a+i\,b,$ $(a,b)\in R,$ then its conjugate is defined as $\overline{z}=a-ib$                              Hence, we have   $\operatorname{Re}(z)=\frac{z+\overline{z}}{2}$ and $\operatorname{Im}(z)=\frac{z-\overline{z}}{2i}$   $\Rightarrow$ Geometrically, the conjugate of z is the reflection or point image of z in the real axis.   e.g.                     (i)         $z=3-4i$                         $z=3-(-4)=3+4i$                         (ii)        $z=2+5i$                         $\overline{z}=2-5i$                         (iii)       $\overline{z}=5i$                         $\overline{z}=-5i$
• Operation (i.e. Addition and Multiplication) of Complex Number
e.g.       ${{z}_{1}}=a+ib=(a,b)$ ${{z}_{2}}=c+id=(c,d)$ Then ${{z}_{1}}+{{z}_{2}}=(a+c,b+d)=(a+c)+i(b+d)$ ${{z}_{1}}.{{z}_{2}}=(a,b)(c,d)=(ac-bd,bc+ad)$ ${{z}_{1}}-{{z}_{2}}=(a-c,b-d)\Rightarrow {{z}_{1}}-{{z}_{2}}=(a-c,b-a)$
• Some Properties of Conjugate Number
(a)        $(\overline{z})=z$                                                          (b)        $z+\overline{z}$ if & only if z is purely real   (c)        $z+-\overline{z}$ iff z  is purely imaginary            (d)        $z+\overline{z}=2\operatorname{Re}(z)=2p$ Real part of z   (e)        $z-\overline{z}=2i\,\,lm(z)=2i$ Imaginary part of z        (f)         $\overline{{{z}_{1}}+{{z}_{2}}}={{\overline{z}}_{1}}\pm {{\overline{z}}_{2}}$   (g)        $\overline{{{z}_{1}}.{{z}_{2}}}={{\overline{z}}_{1}}.{{\overline{z}}_{2}}$                                         (h)        $\left( \frac{\overline{{{z}_{1}}}}{{{z}_{2}}} \right)=\overline{\frac{{{z}_{1}}}{{{z}_{2}}}},{{z}_{2}}\ne 0.$   (i)         $\text{f}i\,\,z=\text{f}({{z}_{1}})$ then $\overline{z}=\text{f}(\overline{{{z}_{1}}})$                              (j)         $(\overline{{{z}^{4}}})={{(\overline{z})}^{4}}$   (k)${{z}_{1}}{{\overline{z}}_{2}}+{{\overline{z}}_{1}}{{z}_{2}}=2\operatorname{Re}({{z}_{1}}.{{\overline{z}}_{2}})=2.Re({{z}_{1}}.{{\overline{z}}_{2}})$
• Square Roots of a Complex Number
Let z = x + iy. Let the square root of a complex number $z=x+iy$ is $u+iv$ i.e. $\sqrt{x+iy}=u+iv$                         ......... (1)   squaring both sides we have $x+iy={{(u+iv)}^{2}}={{u}^{2}}+{{(iv)}^{2}}+2.u.(iv)$ $={{u}^{2}}-{{v}^{2}}+2iuv$   Equating real & imaginary part, we have $x={{u}^{2}}-{{v}^{2}}$                                        ........ (2) $y=2uv$                                                          ........ (3)   Now, ${{u}^{2}}+{{v}^{2}}=\sqrt{{{({{u}^{2}}+{{v}^{2}})}^{2}}+4{{u}^{2}}{{v}^{2}}}$   $=\sqrt{{{x}^{2}}+{{y}^{2}}}$                                           ........ (4)   Solving (2) & (4), we have   $2{{u}^{2}}=\sqrt{{{x}^{2}}+{{y}^{2}}+x}$   ${{u}^{2}}=\sqrt{\frac{{{x}^{2}}+{{y}^{2}}}{2}}+\frac{x}{2}$                          $\therefore \,\,\,u=\pm \sqrt{\frac{\sqrt{{{x}^{2}}+{{y}^{2}}}-x}{2}}$   Similarly, $v=\pm \sqrt{\frac{\sqrt{{{x}^{2}}+{{y}^{2}}}-x}{2}}$   From (3), we can determine the sign of xy as, if xy > 0 then x & y will be the same sign.   $\sqrt{x+iy}=\pm \sqrt{\frac{\sqrt{{{x}^{2}}+{{y}^{2}}}+x}{2}},+i\sqrt{\frac{\sqrt{{{x}^{2}}+{{y}^{2}}}-x}{2}}$
• If $\mathbf{xy<0}$ then square root of $\mathbf{z}\sqrt{\mathbf{x+iy}}$
$=\pm \left( \sqrt{\frac{\sqrt{{{x}^{2}}+{{y}^{2}}}+x}{2}}-i\sqrt{\frac{\sqrt{{{x}^{2}}+{{y}^{2}}-x}}{2}} \right)$   In short form it can be written. i.e.        $xy>0$   Then square root of $z=x+iy$ i.e. $\sqrt{x+iy}=\pm \left( \sqrt{\frac{\left| z \right|+x}{2}}+i\sqrt{\frac{\left| z \right|-x}{2}} \right)$ e.g. Find the square root of 7+24i   Giveen $z=\sqrt{x+iy}=\sqrt{7+24i}$   $\left| \,z\, \right|=\sqrt{{{7}^{2}}+{{(24)}^{2}}}=\sqrt{625}=25$   Square root of $z=7+24i$   $=\pm \sqrt{\frac{25+7}{2}}=i\sqrt{\frac{25-7}{2}}=\pm \left( \sqrt{\frac{32}{2}}+\sqrt{\frac{18}{2}} \right)$   $=\pm (4+i3)=(4+3)$ or$-(4+3i)$
• Polar form of a complex number
Let us consider 0 as origin & OX as x-axis & OY as Y-axis.     Let $z=x+iy$ is a complex no. It is represented as $P(x,y).$ more...

#### Notes - Mathematics Olympiads - Continuity Differentiability

Continuity and Differentiability of a Function   Introduction   The word 'continuous' means without any break or gap. If the graph a function has no break or gap or jump, then it is said to be continuous. A function which is not continuous is called a discontinuous function. While studying graphs of functions, we see that graphs of functions sinx, x, cosx, etc. are continuous on R but greatest integer functions [x] has break at every integral point, so it is not continuous. Similarly tanx, cotx, seex, 1/x etc. are also discontinuous function on R.   Continuous Function                            Discontinuous Function                                       Continuity of a Function at a Point   A function f(x) is said to be continuous at a point x = a of its domain if and only if it satisfies the following three condition:   (i)         f(a) exist. ('a' line in the domain of f) (ii)        $\underset{x+a}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(x) exist e.e; $\underset{x\to {{a}^{+}}}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(x)= $\underset{x\to {{a}^{-}}}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(x) or R.H.L= L.H.L (iii)       $\underset{x+a}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(x) = f(a) (limit equals the value of function)   Continuity from Left and Right A function f(x) is said to be continuous at a point x = a of its domain if and only if it satisfies the following three condition:   (i)         f(a) exist. ('a' line in the domain of f) (ii)        $\underset{x+a}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(x) exist e.e; $\underset{x\to {{a}^{+}}}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(x)= $\underset{x\to {{a}^{-}}}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(x) or R.H.L= L.H.L (iii)       $\underset{x+a}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(x) = f(a) (limit equals the value of function)   Cauchy's Definition of Continuity A function f is said to be continuous at a point a of its domain D if for every $\varepsilon >o$ there exists $\delta >o$ (dependent of$\varepsilon$) such that $\left| x-a \right|<\delta$ $\Rightarrow \left| \text{f}(x)-\text{f(a)} \right|<\varepsilon$   Comparing this definition with the definition of limit we find that f(x) is continuous at x = a if $\underset{x\to a}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$f(x) exists and is equal to f(a) i.e; $\underset{x\to {{a}^{-}}}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(a) $\underset{x\to {{a}^{+}}}{\mathop{\lim }}\,$ f(x).   Continuity from Left and Right             Function f(x) is said to be   (i)         Left continuous at x= a if $\underset{x\to {{a}^{-}}}{\mathop{\lim }}\,\,\,\text{f(x)=f(a)}\text{.}$ (ii)        Right continuous at x = a if $\underset{x\to {{a}^{+}}}{\mathop{\lim }}\,\,\,\text{f(x)=f(a)}\text{.}$ Thus a function f(x) is continuous at a point x = a if it is left continuous as well as right continuous at x = a.     Differentiation   The function, f(x) is differentiable at point P, iff there exists a unique tangent at point P. In other words, f(x) is differentiable at point P iff the curve does not have pas a corner point i.e; the function is not differentiable at those more...

#### Notes - Mathematics Olympiads - Trigonometry

Trigonometry   Key Points to Remember Trigonometry: It is derived/contained from two greek words trigon and metron means that the measurement of three sides of the triangle.     A triangle has three vertex, three angles and three sides in above figure. vertex be A, Band C Angle be $\angle ABC,$ $\angle BCA,$ and $\angle CAB,$or $\angle BAC$ According to sides, type of triangle be (a)        Equilateral Triangle: All sides are equal (b)        Isosceles Triangle: Two sides are equal (c)        Scalene Triangle: All sides are different. According to Angle, There are three types of triangles: (a)        Acute Angle Triangle              (b)        Obtuse Angle Triangle              (c)        Right angle Triangle
• Point to Remember
Sum of all angles in a triangle is $180{}^\circ$
• Trigonometric Ratio
In right angle triangle, basically, there are three triagonometrical ratio: sin, cosine and tangent. i.e. total trigonometrical ratio are six: sin, cos, tan, cosec, sec, cot Let us consider a right angle triangle ABC in which     Then $\angle A=90{}^\circ -\theta$ $\sin \theta =\frac{P}{h}=\frac{AB}{AC},\,$$\cos ec\,\theta =\frac{h}{P}$ $\cos \,\theta =\frac{b}{h},$ $sec\theta =\frac{h}{b}$ $\tan \theta =\frac{P}{b},$ $\cot \theta =\frac{b}{P}$ Trigonometrical ratio shows the relation between angle and sides of the triangle.
• Product of trigonometrical ratio
 $\sin \theta \times \operatorname{cosec}\theta =1$ $\tan \theta \times \cot \theta =1$ $\cos \theta \times \sec \theta =1$

• Some Important Formula
${{\sin }^{2}}\theta +{{\cos }^{2}}\theta =1$            …….. (1) $LHS={{\left( \frac{P}{h} \right)}^{2}}+{{\left( \frac{b}{h} \right)}^{2}}=\frac{{{P}^{2}}}{{{h}^{2}}}+\frac{{{b}^{2}}}{{{h}^{2}}}$
 ${{\sin }^{2}}\theta =1-{{\cos }^{2}}\theta$ ${{\cos }^{2}}\theta =1-{{\sin }^{2}}\theta$
$=\frac{{{P}^{2}}+{{b}^{2}}}{{{h}^{2}}}=\frac{{{h}^{2}}}{{{h}^{2}}}=1$ [By pythagoras theorem]     Dividing equation (1) on both sides by ${{\cos }^{2}}q,$we have $\frac{{{\sin }^{2}}\theta }{{{\cos }^{2}}\theta }+\frac{{{\cos }^{2}}\theta }{{{\cos }^{2}}\theta }=\frac{1}{{{\sin }^{2}}\theta }$ $\Rightarrow {{\tan }^{2}}\theta +1={{\sec }^{2}}\theta$ $\Rightarrow {{\sec }^{2}}\theta -{{\tan }^{2}}\theta =1$ ${{\tan }^{2}}\theta ={{\sec }^{2}}\theta -1$ Again, dividing (1) by ${{\sin }^{2}}\theta$, we have             $\frac{{{\sin }^{2}}\theta }{{{\sin }^{2}}\theta }+\frac{{{\cos }^{2}}\theta }{{{\cos }^{2}}\theta }=\frac{1}{{{\sin }^{2}}\theta }$             $\Rightarrow 1+{{\cot }^{2}}\theta =\cos e{{c}^{2}}\theta$             $\Rightarrow \cos e{{c}^{2}}\theta -{{\cot }^{2}}\theta =1$              ${{\cot }^{2}}\theta =\cos e{{c}^{2}}\theta -1$   Angle: Inclination between two sides (arms), is said to be an angle, e.g.   Angle may be positive or negative When angle be measured in anticlockwise direction then it is positive otherwise negative.

#### Notes - Mathematics Olympiads - Limits and Derivatives

Limits and Derivatives   Key Points to Remember   A number, ($\ell$ is said to be the limit of the function $\text{y=f}(x)$ at$x=a$, then $\exists$ a positive number, $\in \,\,>\,\,0$ corresponding to the small positive number $\delta \,>\,\,0$ such that $\left| \text{f(x)-}\left. \ell \right| \right.\,<\,\varepsilon ,$ provided $\left| x-\left. a \right| \right.\,<\,\delta$ Evidently, $\underset{x\to \,a}{\mathop{\lim }}\,\,\,f(x)=\ell$ We have to learn how to evaluate the limit of the function $y=f(x)$ Only three type of function can be evaluate the limit of the function.
• Algebraic function
• Trigonometric function
• Logarithmic and exponential function
• Now, basically, there are three method to evaluate the limit of the function.
• By Formula Method
i.e.        $\underset{x\to a}{\mathop{\lim }}\,\frac{{{x}^{n}}-{{a}^{n}}}{x-a}=n.{{a}^{n-1}}$
• Factorisation Method: In this matter numerator and denominator are factorised. The common factors are cancelled and the rest is the result.
• Rationalisation Method: Rationalisation is followed when we have fractional overs $\left( like\frac{1}{2},\frac{1}{3}etc. \right)$ on expressions in numerator or denominator in both. After rationalisation the terms are factorised which on cancellation gives the result.

#### Notes - Mathematics Olympiads - Relation and Function

Relation and Function   Let $A=\{1,\,2,\,3,4,\}$, $B=\{2,\,3\}$ $A\times B=\{1,\,2,3,\,4,\}\times \{2,3\}=\{(1,2),(2,2),(3,2),(4,2),(1,3),(2,3),(3,3),(4,3)\}$   Let we choose an arbitrary set:   $R=[(1,2),(2,2),(1,3),(4,3)]$ Then R is said to be the relation between a set A to B.   Definition   Relation R is the subset of the Cartesian Product$A\times B$. It is represented as $R=\{(x,y):x\in A\,$ and $y\in B\}$ {the 2nd element in the ordered pair (x, y) is the image of 1st element}   Sometimes, it is said that a relation on the set A means the all members / elements of the relation R be the elements / members of $A\text{ }\times \text{ }A$. e.g.      Let $A=\{1,\,2,\,3\}$ and a relation R is defined as $R=\{(x,y):x<y$ where $x,y\in A\}$   Sol.     $\because$$\mathbf{A=\{1,}\,\mathbf{2,}\,\mathbf{3\}}$ $A\times A=\{(1,1),(2,2),(3,3),(2,1),(3,1),(1,2),(3,2),(1,3),(2,3)\}$             $\because \,\,\,\,R=\,\,\,\because x<y$             $\because \,\,\,\,R=\{(x,y):x<y,and\,x,y\in A\}=\{(1,2),(2,3),(1,3)$   Note: Let a set A has m elements and set B has n elements. Then $n(A\times B)$ be $m\times n$elements so, total number of relation from A to B or between A and B be${{2}^{m\times n}}$.
• A relation can be represented algebraically either by Roster method or set builder method.
Types of Relation
• Void Relation: A relation R from A to B is a null set, then R is said to be void or empty relation.

• Universal Relation: A relation on a set A is said to be universal relation, if each element of A is related to or associated with every element of A.

• Identity Relation: A relation ${{I}_{x}}\{(x,x):x\in A\}$ on a set A is said to be identity relation on A.

• Reflexive relation: A relation Ron the set A is said to be the reflexive relation. If each and every element of set A is associated to itself. Hence, R is reflexive iff $(a,\,a)\in R\,\,\forall \,\,a\in A$.
e.g.       $\Rightarrow \,\,A=\{1,\,2,\,3,\,4\}$ $R=\{(1,\,3),(1,1),(2,3),(3,2),(2,2),(3,1),(3,3),(4,4)\}$is a reflexive relation on f.   Sol.     Yes, because each and every element of A is related to itself in R.
• Symmetric relation: A relation R on a set A is said to be symmetric relation iff. $(x,y)\in R\Rightarrow (y,x)\in R\,\,\forall \,\,x,y\in A$
i.e. $x\,R\,y\Rightarrow y\,R\,x\,\,\forall \,\,x,y\in A$ $\because$ xRy is read as x is R-related to y.
• Anti-symmetric relation: A relation which is not symmetric is said to be anti-symmetric relation.

• Transitive relation: Let A be any non-empty set. A relation R on set A is said to be transitive relation R iff $(x,y)\in R$ and $(y,z)\in R$ then $(x,z)\in R\,\,\forall \,\,x,y,z\in R.$
i.e.       $xRy$ and $yRz\Rightarrow xRz\,\,\forall \,\,x,\,y,\,z\in R$.
• Let $\mathbf{A=\{1,}\,\mathbf{2,}\,\mathbf{3,}\,\mathbf{4\}}$
• $A\times A=\{(1,,1),(2,1),(3,1),(4,1),(1,2),(2,2),(3,2),(4,2),(1,3),(2,3),(3,3),(4,3),(1,4),(2,4),(3,4),(4,4),$ ${{R}_{1}}=(1,1),(2,2),(3,2),(2,3),(3,3),(4,4)$ ${{R}_{2}}=(2,2),(1,3),(3,3),(3,1),(1,1)$ ${{R}_{3}}=(1,1),(2,2),(3,4),(3,3),(4,4)$   State about${{\mathbf{R}}_{\mathbf{1}}}$, ${{\mathbf{R}}_{\mathbf{2}}}$ and${{\mathbf{R}}_{\mathbf{3}}}$. Are they reflexive, symmetric, anti-symmetric or transitive relations?   Sol.     ${{R}_{1}}$ is symmetric as well as transitive relation for ${{R}_{2}}$. ${{R}_{2}}$is not reflexive because $(4,4)\in more... #### Notes - Mathematics Olympiads - Set Theory Set Theory A Set A set is the collection of things which is well-defined. Here well-defined means that group or collection of things which is defined distinguishable and distinct e.g. Let A is the collection of the group M = {cow, ox, book, pen, man}. Is this group collection is a set or not? Actually this is not a set. Because it is collection of things but it cannot be defined in a single definition. For example, A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5,... n} Here, collection A is a set because A is group or collection of natural numbers. e.g. A = {a, e, i, o, u}= {x/x : vowel of English alphabet} Distinguish Between a Set and a Member e.g. A = {2, 5, 8, 7} \[2\in A$. It is read as 2 belongs to set A. Or 2 is the member/element of set A. $6\notin A$- It means 6 doesn't belong to set A. A set is represented by capital letter of English/Greek Alphabet. $\alpha ,\beta ,\gamma ,\delta$or A, B, C, U, S etc. and its all elements is closed with { } bracket. Hence what is the difference between 2 and {2} $\because$2 can be element of a set whereas {2} represents a set whose one elements is 2.   Note:    A set is the collection of distinguish and distinct things A set can be written/represented in the two form   (a)        Tabular form/Roaster form (b)        Set builder form e.g.
• $A=\{a,e,i,o,u\}\to$Tabular form/roaster form
• = {$x/x:$ a vowel of english letter} = It is said to be set-builder form Note:    $x:x$or $x/x$is read as x such that $x$
• A = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10} = {$x/x$, is an even numbers $\le$10}
•   Type of Sets   (i)         Null Set: A set which has no element, is said to be a null set and denoted by $\phi \,or\,\{\}$ e.g.       (a) a set of three-eyed men (b) Set of real solution of the equation ${{x}^{2}}+1=0,$ ${{x}^{2}}=-1\Rightarrow x=\sqrt{-1}=$imaginary   (ii)        Singleton Set: A set having single element is said to be singleton set. e.g.       A = {2}   (iii)       Finite Set: A set having definite and countable elements, is said to be finite set e.g.       $A=\{a,e,i,o,u\}$   (iv)       Infinite Set: A set having uncountable and indefinite elements is said to be infinite set. e.g.       a set of stars.   (v)        Equal set: Two or more than two sets are said to be equal sets if they have the same elements. e.g.       $A=\{1,\,2,\,5,\,7,\,8\}$, $B=\{2,\,5,8,1,7\}$. So, $A=B$
• Operations on Sets
• Union-operation
• Intersection operation
• Complement operation
• Difference operation
• e.g.       $A=\{1,\,2,\,3,\,5\}$, $B=\{2,\,5,7,\,8\}$                         $A\,\bigcup B=\{1,\,2,3,5,7,8\}$, $A\,\bigcap \,B=\{2,\,5\}$
• Union Set: Let A and B be two non-empty sets then A union B i.e. $A\,\bigcup B$is a set more...

#### Notes - Mathematics Olympiads - Sequence Series

Sequence and series
• Sequence: A sequence is a mapping of or function whose domain is the set of natural number and its range is the set of real number or complex number. But we will study the real number sequence only.
e.g.       (a) ${{x}_{1}},\,{{x}_{2}},{{x}_{3}}.....{{x}_{n}}.$   (b)        2, 4, 6, 8, 10..... (c)        1, 4, 7, 10, 13....... etc. These above example is a sequence of real no.   Note:    Sequence is also said to be progression. Generally there are three type of sequence (a)        Arithmatic progression or sequence (A.P.) (b)        Geometric progression (G.P.) (c)        Harmonic prograssion (H.P.)
• Arithmetic sequence: A sequence (Sn) is said to be an arithmetic sequence if difference between any term and its proceeding term give the constant quantity.
e.g. Sn: 3,8,13,18, 23..... we choose any term $13-5=5$ $23-18=5$ etc. The constant quantity is said to common difference (c.d.) in A.P.
• Remember Some Points about A.P.
(a)        ${{n}^{th}}$ term whose 1st term and common difference is given in A.P. is written as ${{t}_{n}}=a+(n-1).d$ where a = 1st term and d = comman difference n = no. of terms in the A.P.   (b)        Sum of the ${{n}^{th}}$ term in A.P. be   $Sn=\frac{n}{2}\{2a+(n-1).d\}=\frac{n}{2}\{a+a+(n-1).d\}$   $=\frac{n}{2}\{a+{{t}_{n}}\}=\frac{n}{2}\{1st\,\,term+\,last\,\,term\}$   (c)        Single arithmetic mean between two given quantity is $A.M=\frac{a+b}{2}$ (d)        For n arithmetic mean between two terms a and b. $\therefore$ So, the total no. of terms = n+ 2 Last term $=b=a+(n+2-1).d=a+(n+1).d$ Where d = comman difference in A.P.   (e)        For choosing five term in A.P. We take them as $a-2b,a-b,a+b$and $(a+2b)$ etc.
• Some very useful results: If the last term, ${{t}_{n}}$ is in the linear form. i.e. ${{t}_{n}}=an+b.$ Here, n is considered as variable then the series so formed is said to be in A.P. Similarly if last tern, ${{t}_{n}}=a{{n}^{2}}+bn+c$ (i.e. in quadratic form), then the series so formed is said to be in A.P.
If ${{a}_{1}},\,{{a}_{2}},\,{{a}_{3}},\,{{a}_{4}}....{{a}_{n}}$is said to be in A.P. Then   (a)        ${{a}_{1}}\pm \text{k},\,{{a}_{2}}\pm \text{k},....$will be in A.P.. Where k be any const quantity (b)        Even $\text{k}.{{a}_{2}},\text{k}.{{a}_{2}},\text{k}.{{a}_{3}}.....$will be said to be in A.P. (c)        $\frac{{{a}_{1}}}{\text{k}},\frac{{{a}_{2}}}{\text{k}},\frac{{{a}_{3}}}{\text{k}}...$is said to be in A.P. (d)        If ${{a}_{1}},\,{{a}_{2}},\,{{a}_{3}},\,{{a}_{4}},\,{{a}_{5}}....$be in A.P. and also ${{b}_{1}},\,{{b}_{2}},\,{{b}_{3}},\,{{b}_{4}},\,{{b}_{5}}....$be in A.P. then the resulting sequence whose elements are corresponding element addition or multiplication of given sequences is said to be in A.P.             $\Rightarrow (b-a)=(n+1).d$             $d=\frac{b-a}{(n+1)}$             Hence, 1st A.M. between a and b   $=a+d\,\,\,\,\,=a+\left( \frac{b-a}{n+1} \right)$ 2nd A.M. between a and $=a+2d\,\,\,\,\,=a+2.\left( \frac{b-a}{n+1} \right)$ 2nd A.M. between a and b   ${{n}^{th}}$ A.M. between a and $b=a+n\frac{(b-a)}{n+1}$   (e)        Sum of the n-natural number is written as             $\text{Sn=}\frac{\text{n}(n+1)}{2},$ where $n\in N$   (f)         Sum of the square of first n-natural number is written as             $\text{S}{{\text{n}}^{\text{2}}}\text{=}\frac{\text{n}(n+1)(2n+1)}{6}$   (g)        Sum of the cube of the 1st n-natural number be             $\text{S}{{\text{n}}^{3}}\text{=}{{\left( \frac{n(n+1)}{2} \right)}^{2}}$ more...
