Solutions to Simplification questions for IBPS Clerk:

The problem can be solved quickly by rounding off,
32.05% ~32 and 259.99~ 260
Now, 32% of 260 = 83.2

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

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.

By approximating 561~560, 19.99~20 and 35.05~ 35 for easier calculation,
the question can be written as,
560*(20/35)=320

The question can be reframed as,
$15^2 * \sqrt(729) = 225*27 = 6075$

Expression : 4376 + 3209 – 1784 +97 = 3125+?
=> 7682 – 1784 = 3125 + x
=> 5898 = 3125 + x
=> x = 5898 – 3125 = 2773

Expression : $\sqrt{?}$ + 14= $\sqrt{2601}$
=> $\sqrt{x}$ + 14 = 51
=> $\sqrt{x}$ = 51 – 14 = 37
=> $x = (37)^2$ = 1369

Expression : 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

= $\frac{7}{3} \times \frac{5}{4} \times 3024$
= $35 \times 252 = 8820$
= $(\frac{30}{100} \times 1225) – (\frac{64}{100} \times 555)$
