**Solutions to Simplification questions for IBPS Clerk:**

**Â 1) **Answer (E)

The problem can be solved quickly by rounding off,

32.05% ~32 and 259.99~ 260

Now, 32% of 260 = 83.2

**2) **Answer (B)

Now, $\frac{1}{8}$ of $\frac{2}{3}$ = (1/8)*(2/3)=1/12

Also, ( $\frac{1}{8}$ of $\frac{2}{3}$ ) of $\frac{3}{5}$ = (1/12) * (3/5) =1/20

Now, (1/20) 0f 1715= (1/20)*1715 = 85

**3) **Answer (C)

Here we are approximating 25.05~25, 123.95~124, 388.99~389, 15.001~15.

The question can be rewritten as,

25*123+388*15=8935

Hence the correct option is 8935.

**4) **Answer (A)

By approximating 561~560, 19.99~20 and 35.05~ 35 for easier calculation,

the question can be written as,

560*(20/35)=320

**5) **Answer (D)

The question can be reframed as,

$15^2 * \sqrt(729) = 225*27 = 6075$

**6) **Answer (C)

ExpressionÂ :Â 4376 + 3209 â€“ 1784 +97 = 3125+?

=> 7682 – 1784 = 3125 + x

=> 5898 = 3125 + x

=> x = 5898 – 3125 = 2773

**7) **Answer (B)

ExpressionÂ :Â $\sqrt{?}$ + 14= $\sqrt{2601}$

=> $\sqrt{x}$ + 14 = 51

=> $\sqrt{x}$ = 51 – 14 = 37

=> $x = (37)^2$ = 1369

**8) **Answer (C)

ExpressionÂ :Â 85% of 420 + ? % of 1080 = 735

=> $(\frac{85}{100} \times 420) + (\frac{x}{100} \times 1080) = 735$

=> 357 + 10.8x = 735

=> 10.8x = 735 – 357 = 378

=> $x = \frac{378}{10.8}$ = 35

**9) **Answer (D)

ExpressionÂ :Â 7/3 of 5/4 of 3024 = ?

= $\frac{7}{3} \times \frac{5}{4} \times 3024$

= $35 \times 252 = 8820$

**10) **Answer (B)

ExpressionÂ :Â 30% of 1225 â€“ 64% of 555 = ?

= $(\frac{30}{100} \times 1225) – (\frac{64}{100} \times 555)$

= 367.5 – 355.2 = 12.3
