## Simplification

This is a process of replacing a mathematical equation or expression by an equivalent expression that is shorter to evaluate. In mathematics, simplifications are used to make the mathematical calculation or equation less complex or complicated. And it is also used to make it plainer or easier. Simplification is one of the most important concept of Quantitative Aptitude. It carries considerable marks in any competitive exam.

While simplifying a mathematical equation, we have to follow certain rules. That is the equation is to be evaluated in certain order. Any algebraic expression should be simplified in the below given order. BODMASS is the most important formula used in simplification questions. The detailed meaning of BODMASS is given below as per which you can solve the questions in correct of. As per the ascending level of alphabets, the respective operation has to be applied.

- V- Vinculum
- B – Remove Brackets. The brackets are removed in the order of () first, then {}, then []
- O– Of
- D – Division
- M – Multiplication
- A – Addition
- S- Subtraction

So, First of all bracket has to be solved followed by

The following are some of the important parts of simplification

- Number system
- HCF and LCM
- Squares and Cubes
- Fractions and Decimals
- Surds and Indices
- BODMAS Rule

This rule depicts the correct sequence in which the operations are to be executed, so as to find out the value of a given expression. So, you can solve the questions given in PDF given below and get well trained with the simplification questions. In all competitive exams, there are different level of questions, but simplification based questions are always present.
