# SSC Study Material: - Mathematical Operations Type-1

In this article, we have prepared 25 questions based on Problem solving by substitution method as it is very necessary from the point of view of questions asked in SSC exams.

In this article, The expert SSC team of www.jagranjosh.com has prepared a set of 25 questions covering the Mathematical Operations of type-1 for Reasoning section. There are 2-4 questions in SSC CGL out of this chapter. We are providing you different variety of questions based on Type-1 which will surely help you in scoring good marks.

There are basically four fundamental operations, i.e. Addition, Substraction, Divison, Multiplication and apart from that ‘Greater than’,’ smaller than’,’ equal to’ & ‘not equal to’. While solving the problems, you must keep the **BODMAS **Rule into consideration, i.e. Brackets, Of, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction.

Apart from that, there are basically 4 types of problems in Mathematical Operations.

- Problem solving by substitution
- Equation Balancing
- Interchanging Signs and numbers
- Trick based Mathematical Operations

Here are the practice questions. Go through it.
