100+ Best simplification questions For Bank PO, Clerk, SSC

Hello students we are here to describe one of the parts of the aptitude section of the examination for Bank PO, Clerk, SSC, etc. So we are discussing Simplification questions today.

What Is Simplification

Simplification is a part of aptitude and it is basically a trick to solve lengthy equations by simplifying it by using tricks like Bodmas. Bodmas rule is very popular and effective to solve the simplification questions.

So let us discuss some examples of Simplification questions with answers and explanation. We will share these questions in in different categories according to the exams like PO, Clerk, SSC, etc.

Bodmas Rule

BODMAS is an representation of Bracket, Order, Division, Multiplication, Addition, and Subtraction. In specific areas, PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction) is utilized, which is the equivalent word of BODMAS.

It clarifies the request for activities to be performed while tackling an articulation. As indicated by BODMAS rule, if an articulation contains sections ((), {}, []) we have first to address or improve on the section followed by ‘request’ (that implies powers and roots, and so on), at that point division, duplication, expansion and deduction from left to right. Tackling the issue out of order will bring about an off-base answer.
