Quantitative Reasoning is a psychometric test that is complex and highly advanced. It measures a person’s ability to use mathematical skills in order to solve equations.
Quantitative Aptitude is a very essential paper in banking exam. We can’t ignore it. So it is very very important to you improve your maths skills for banking exams. Most of you feel that its a more time taking paper in exam but if you follow some guidelines, you can easily crack the bank exam. Copetituve exams are setting with time binding. Every one can do all maths without time binding but thhe main challenges are came into with in time. SO our main focus into speed and accuracy. That is possible in your Hard working and Dedication. Here in this topic we will discuss Quantitative Aptitude Math Shortcut Tricks.
Tips to solve NTS Quantitative Reasoning problems Questions
Questions in the Quantitative Reasoning measure of the GRE® General Test ask you to model and solve problems using quantitative, or mathematical, methods. Generally, there are three basic steps in solving a mathematics problem:
- Understand the problem
- Carry out a strategy for solving the problem
- Check your answer
- Understand the problem
The first step is to read the statement of the problem carefully to make sure you understand the information given and the problem you are being asked to solve.Some information may describe certain quantities. Quantitative information may be given in words or mathematical expressions, or a combination of both. Also, in some problems you may need to read and understand quantitative information in data presentations, geometric figures or coordinate systems. Other information may take the form of formulas, definitions or conditions that must be satisfied by the quantities. For example, the conditions may be equations or inequalities, or may be words that can be translated into equations or inequalities.
- Carry out a strategy for solving the problem:
Solving a mathematics problem requires more than understanding a description of the problem, that is, more than understanding the quantities, the data, the conditions, the unknowns and all other mathematical facts related to the problem. It requires determining what mathematical facts to use and when and how to use those facts to develop a solution to the problem. It requires a strategy.Mathematics problems are solved by using a wide variety of strategies. Also, there may be different ways to solve a given problem. Therefore, you should develop a repertoire of problem-solving strategies, as well as a sense of which strategies are likely to work best in solving particular problems. Attempting to solve a problem without a strategy may lead to a lot of work without producing a correct solution.
- Check your Answer:
When you arrive at an answer, you should check that it is reasonable and computationally correct.
- Have you answered the question that was asked?
- Is your answer reasonable in the context of the question? Checking that an answer is reasonable can be as simple as recalling a basic mathematical fact and checking whether your answer is consistent with that fact. For example, the probability of an event must be between 0 and 1, inclusive, and the area of a geometric figure must be positive. In other cases, you can use estimation to check that your answer is reasonable. For example, if your solution involves adding three numbers, each of which is between 100 and 200, estimating the sum tells you that the sum must be between 300 and 600.
- Did you make a computational mistake in arriving at your answer? A key-entry error using the calculator? You can check for errors in each step in your solution. Or you may be able to check directly that your solution is correct. For example, if you solved the equation 7 times, open parenthesis, 3 x minus 2, close parenthesis, plus 4, equals 95 for x and got the answer x equals 5 you can check your answer by substituting x equals 5 into the equation to see that 7 times, open parenthesis, 3 times 5, minus 2, close parenthesis, plus 4, equals 95.
Today we will look for some More tips that would make playing with these numbers a little easier. So here you go.
- Practice. Practice. Practice. We have heard all our lives that maths is by practice and that’s no lie. The more you practice, more chances of less mistakes. Not only this but it would save your time as well.
- Manage your time well, don’t spend too much time is on question or don’t get stuck at one point because that would force you to quicken your pace for the others question and sk Chances of mistakes increase.
- To avoid mistakes solve question while saying out what you are doing so if you are writing wrong your words might stop you. That’s usually for basic mathematics. Eg: – 2+2=0 but you might right it 4. Although you know it still you can be mistaken. Words would stop these basic mistakes.
- Not everything is complicated, if you solve something easily its okay. Trust yourself it would be that simpler. Don’t confuse yourself.
- RECHECK. Always recheck your work and one way I do it as, I attempt question with pencil first and then do it again above that with pen. This would not only ensure the neatness but will also eliminate any mistake done first time. You ll erase the pencil one later, of course.
- Learn formulas and write it at towards end of your paper. So you can refer to them whenever you forget.
- Learn basics very well, that’s extremely important. Ask as much as you want to but at the end of day your concepts should be very clear.
So here is my first-hand experience on how you can improve your quantitative solving skills. I hope they are helpful.
