# Simplification Questions for Bank Exam with Solution

Updated on:

This article is about simplification questions for bank exam.

Here, I’m going to explain the most important simplification questions for bank exam with complete solution.

Now, it doesn’t mean that these questions are useful for only bank exams. You can also practice all these questions for any of the competitive exams.

Simplification is a very important chapter from the perspective of competitive exams.

Each competitive exam asks at least two questions of this chapter, so you must prepare for this.

Without wasting your valuable time let’s start the topic that is about simplification questions for bank exam.

## Basic formulas –

1. ( a + b )² = a²+b²+2ab

2. ( a – b )² = a²+b²-2ab

3. ( a + b )² = ( a – b )²+4ab

4. ( a – b )² = ( a + b )²-4ab

5. ( a²-b² ) = ( a + b ) ( a – b )

6. ( a + b )³ = a³+b³+3ab ( a + b )

7. ( a – b )³ = a³-b³-3ab ( a – b )

8. ( a³ – b³ ) = ( a – b ) ( a²+b²+ab )

9. ( a³ + b³ ) = ( a + b ) ( a²+b²-ab )

10. ( a + 1/a )² = a²+1/a²+2

11. ( a – 1/a )² = a²+1/a²-2

12. ( a – 1/a )² = ( a + 1/a )² – 4

13. ( a + 1/a )² = ( a – 1/a )² + 4

14. ( a – 1/a )³ = a³-1/a³-3(a-1/a)

15. ( a + 1/a )³ = a³+1/a³+3(a+1/a)

16. ( a + b + c ) ² = a²+b²+c²+2ab+2bc+2ca = a²+b²+c²+2( ab + bc + ca )

17. a³+b³+c³-3abc = ( a + b + c ) ( a²+b²+c²-ab-bc-ca ) = 1/2×(a + b + c ) [ ( a – b )²+( b – c )²+( c-a )² ]

18. If a+b+c =0, then a³+b³+c³-3abc = 0

19. BODMAS rule It stands for Bracket, Of, Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction.

It’s mandatory to solve simplification questions in BODMAS order.

## Vijay Gupta

Hello everyone, My name is Vijay Gupta and I belong to a very small town that is situated in district Hardoi, which is in Uttar Pradesh. 1. Education – I’ve completed my primary education from a private school that is situated in my hometown and upper primary, matric and higher secondary education have been completed from a government college. Well, I was an average student till class 5th, but I accelerated my preference towards studies from class six. Consequently, I passed out many classes with good positions. Even I passed out 12th with good marks ( 405/500 ) and topped my college. Due to getting good marks, I got a cheque of 500 rupees and was rewarded by the Principal of my college. After completing my 12th, I prepared twice for IIT ( Indian Institute of Technology ) from Aakash institute, but unfortunately, I failed to get selected into the best IIT colleges. But during the preparation, I was being graduated from CSJMU Kanpur. I completed my graduation in 2016 and now I’m pursuing an educational degree ( B.Ed. ). 2. Profession – Although I love teaching, but I also do blogging. Both are my favorite jobs.
