Solution :

235.355 + 533.232 – 555.33 + 333.222 = ? – 55.333

⇒ 235.355 + 533.232 – 555.33 + 333.222 + 55.333 = ?

⇒ 601.81

2.   133.223 + 222.32 + 32.2 + 111.02 = ?

Solution :

133.223 + 222.32 + 32.2 + 111.02 = ?

? = 498.763

3.      272.5 × ((243)3)? = 322.5

Solution :

272.5 × ((243)3)? = 322.5

or, (33)2.5 × ((35)3)= 322.5

or, ((3)15)= 322.5  × (3)-7.5

Base are the same, so we can compare the powers

or, 15 × ? = 22.5 – 7.5

or, 15 × ? = 15

or, ? = 1

4.    6.3 × 9.8 ÷ √196 × 0.15 + 1.331 = ?3 + 0.6615

Solution :

6.3 × 9.8 ÷ √196 × 0.15 + 1.331 = ?3 + 0.6615

 63 × 98 × 15 +  1.331 – 0.6615 = ?3 14 × 10000

0.6615 + 1.331 – 0.6615 = ?3

?3 = 1.331

? = 1.1

5.    28.57% of 3780 = 676 × ? × 512 ÷ 104

Solution :

28.57% of 3780 = 676 × ? × 512 ÷ 104

 3780 × 2 = 26 × ? × 8 7 104

 ? = 1 × 3 × 1 × 3564 = 9 9 11 12

2.     (38 + 8) × (88 + 78) – 98 = ?

Solution :

(38 + 8) × (88 + 78) – 98 = ?

⇒  [8 × 4 × 8 × 15] – 98

⇒ [8 × 4 × 15] – 98

⇒ 480 – 98 = 382

3.      11.11% of 27.27% of 8.33% of 3564 = ?

Solution :

11.11% of 27.27% of 8.33% of 3564 = ?

 ⇒ 1 of 180 + 2 of 321 = ? of 548 3 3

⇒  60 + 214 = ? × 548

⇒  274 = ? × 548

 ⇒ ? = 274 = 1 548 2

2.       11449 × 6241 – (54)2 = ? + (74)2

Solution :

11449 × 6241 – (54)2 = ? + (74)2

⇒ 107 × 79 – 2916 = ? + 5476

⇒ 8453 – 2916 – 5476 = ?

⇒ 61 = ?

⇒ ? = 612 = 3721

3.       (4)3 + (12)3 + ? = 502 × 4

Solution :

43 +123 + ? = 502 × 4

64 + 1728 + ? = 2008

? = 2008 – 1792 = 216

? = 216

4.       ?% of (584 – 244) = (9)2 + 21

Solution :

?% of (584.4 – 244.2) = (9)2 + 21

 Or, ? × 340 = 81 + 21 = 102 100

 ∴   ? = 102 × 100 = 30 340

5.       248.44 – 43.28 + 54.86 – 12.24 + 120.22 = 25% of ?

248.44 + 54.86 + 120.22 – 43.28 – 12.24 = ?

 ? = 423.52 – 55.52 = 368 = 25 × ? 100

? = 368 × 4 = 1472

2.       (7657.63 + 2587.97 – 8876.6) × (5741.65 – 1981.22 – 1975.43) = ?2 × 289

Solution :

(7657.63 + 2587.97 – 8876.6) × (5741.65 – 1981.22 – 1975.43) = ?2 × 289

(10245.6 – 8876.6) × (5741.65 – 3956.65) = ?2 × 17

1369 × 1785 = ?2 × 17

?2 = 1369 × 105

?2 = 37 × 37 × 5 × 3 × 7

? = 37 105

3.        (7770 ÷ 70) + (1500 ÷ 25) + (1008 ÷ 28) + 2152 = ?

Solution :

? = (7770 ÷ 70) + (1500 ÷ 25) + (1008 ÷ 28) + 2152

= 111 + 60 + 36 + 2152 = 2359

4.       (0.2)3 × 200 ÷ 2000 of (0.2)2 = ?

Solution :

= (0.2)3 × 200 ÷ 2000 of (0.2)2

Applying the BODMAS, we get

= (0.2)3 × 200 ÷ (2000 × 0.2 × 0.2)

 = 0.2 × 0.2 × 0.2 × 200 2000 × 0.2 × 0.2

 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 200 2000 × 2 × 2 × 10

 = 2 = 2 = 1 100 100 50

5.         ? – 784 = 6 × 324

Solution :

? – 784 = 6 × 324

or, ? = 6 × 18 + 28

or, 108 + 28 = 136
