**SSC GD Constable reasoning study material: Mathematical Operations**

**1. If ‘x’ means ‘minus’, ‘-’ means ‘division’, ‘+’ means ‘multiplication’, and ‘/‘ means ‘addition’. Which of the following will be the value of the expression 275 x 25 + 6 – 24 / 15?**

a. 130.95

b. 135.15

c. 141.12

d. 145.15**Ans.:-d.Explanation:- **

= 275 x 25 + 6 – 24 / 15;

Change the mathematical signs as per the question stating and apply BODMAS rule-

= 275 - 125 x 16 / 14 + 13;

= 275 + 13 – 142.85

= 145.15

**2. If ‘A’ means ‘minus’, ‘C’ means ‘division’, ‘B’ means ‘multiplication’, and ‘D‘ means ‘addition’. What will be the value of 325 D 35 C 70 B 20 A 5?**

a. 310

b. 320

c. 330

d. 340**Ans.:-d.Explanation: - **

= 325 D 35 C 70 B 20 A 5

Change the mathematical signs as the question states and apply BODMAS rule-

= 325 + 35 / 70 * 20 - 5

= 325 – 5 + 10

= 330

**3. If a – b means a / b, a/b means a * b, a*b means a + b, then 10 – 1 x 10 / 10 + 1 x 1 =?**

a. 0

b. 1

c. 10

d. 11**Ans.:-c.Explanation:- **In the above conditions, it is obvious ------a + b = a - b;

= 10 – 1 x 10 / 10 + 1 x 1

Use the above conditions in the above equation and apply BODMAS rule-

= 10 / 1 + 10 - 10 * 1 / 1;

= 10 + 10 -10

= 10

**4. Which one of the following four interchanges in signs and numbers would make the given equation correct? (6 / 2) x 3 = 0 **

a. / and x, 2 and 3

b. - and x, 2 and 6

c. / and x, 2 and 6

d. - to x, 2 and 3

Explanation:-

a) Making the interchanges given in (a.), we get 6 x 3 / 2 = 0; 9 = 0, which is false.

b) Making the interchanges given in (b.), we get 6 x 2 - 3 = 0; 9 = 0, which is false.

c) Making the interchanges given in (c.), we get 2 x 6 / 3 = 0; 4 = 0, which is false.

d) Making the interchanges given in (c.), we get 6 / 3 - 2 = 0; 0 = 0, which is true.

Hence, Option (d.) is the correct answer.

**5. If signs ‘+’ and ‘/’ and numbers 3 and 2 are used interchangeably, then which of the following equation would be correct?**

a. 14 / 2 + 3 = 10

b. 4 / 2 + 3 = 10

c. 1 / 2 + 3 = 3

d. 14 + 3 /2 = 10**Ans.:-d.Explanation:-** Apply the conditions in the all given options;

**6. Correct the following question by interchanging the two signs-9 + 5 /4 x 3 -6 =12**

a. – and /

b. + and x

c. / and x

d. / and +

Explanation:-

= 9 + 5 /4 x 3 -6;

= 9 + 5 -4 x 3 /6;

= 14 – 2 = 12.

**7. If Q means 'add to', P means 'multiply by', R means 'subtract from' and S means 'divide by' then 12 P 12 R 28 Q 7 S 7 = ? **

a. 127

b. 122

c. 117

d. 217** Ans.:- c.Explanation:- **

= 12 P 12 R 28 Q 7 S 7;

= 12 x 12 – 28 + 7 / 7;

= 144 – 28 + 1;

= 117.

**8. If ‘+’ denotes ‘greater than’, ‘-‘ denotes ‘less than’, ‘x’ denotes ‘not greater than’, ‘/’ denotes ‘not less than’; then choose statement in the following question-a – b – c implies:**

a. a – b + c

b. b + a - c

c. b x c + a

d. a + b / c

Explanation:-

a – b – c = > a < b < c ------(i);

a – b + c = > a < b > c , which is not true.

b + a - c = > b > a <c , which is true.

**9. Select the correct set of symbols, which will fit in the given equation?24 2 6 30 6 = 32**

a. *, -, /, +

b. *, /, +, -

c. *, +, -, /

d. /, -, +, *

Explanation:-

= 24 * 2 - 6 / 30 + 6

= 48 – 0.20 + 6 = 53.80, which is not true.

= 24 * 2 / 6 + 30 - 6

= 48 / 6 + 30 -6

= 8 + 30 -6 = 32, which is true.

**10. If `+’ means `x’, `-‘ means `÷’, `x’ means `-‘and `÷’ means `+’, then what will be the value of 32 ÷ 8 – 2 x 3 + 8 = ?**

a. 8

b. 12

c. 18

d. None of these

Explanation:-

= 32 ÷ 8 – 2 x 3 + 8;

Replace the sign as per the question and apply BODMAS rule-

= 32 + 8 / 2 – 3 x 8;

= 32 + 4 -24;

= 12
