The numerator of a fraction is 4 less than its denominator. If the numerator is decreased by 2 and the denominator is increased by 1, then the denominator becomes eight times the numerator, then find the fraction.


ABCD is a rectangle formed by the points A(-1, -1), B(-1, 4), C(5, 4) and D(5, -1). P, Q, R, and S are mid-points of AB, BC, CD and DA, respectively. The quadrilateral PQRS is a:


The polynomial 11a2 - 12√2 a + 2 on factorization gives:


ABCD is a parallelogram, E is the mid-point of AB and CE bisects angle BCD. The value of angle DEC is:


On simplifying (a + b)3 + (a - b)3 + 6a(a2 - b2) we get:
