Simplification

‘VBODMAS’ Rule

www.upscportal.com

In simplification of an expression there are certain laws which should be strictly adhered to. These laws are as follows:

This rule gives the correct sequence in which the mathematical operation are to be executed so as to find out the value of a given expression.

Here, ‘V’ stands for Vicnaculum (or Bar), ‘B’ stands for ‘Bracket’, ‘O’ stands for ‘Of’, ‘D’ stands for ‘Division’, ‘M’ stands for ‘Multiplication’, ‘A’ stands for ‘Addition’ and ‘S’ stand for ‘Subtraction’.

(a) Here, ‘VBODMAS’ gives the order of simplification. Thus, the order of performing the mathematical operations in a given expression are First : Virnaculum or line bracket or bar Second: Bracket Third: Of

Fourth: Division Fifth: Multiplication Sixth: Addition & Seventh: Subtraction The above order should strictly be followed.

(b) There are four types of brackets. (i) Square brackets [ ] (ii) Curly brackets { } (iii) Circular brackets ( ) (iv) Bar or Virnaculum –

Thus, in simplifying an expression all the brackets must be removed in the order ‘–’, ‘( )’, ‘{ }’ and ‘[ ]’. Modulus of a Real Number The modulus of a real number x is defined as = x, if a > 0 |x| = x, if a < 0

Basic Formulae

(i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) (vii) (a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2 (a – b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2 (a + b)2 – (a – b)2 = 4ab (a + b)2 + (a – b)2 = 2(a2 + b2) (a2 – b2) = (a + b) (a – b) (a + b + c)2 = a2 + b2 + c2 + 2(ab + bc + ca) (a3 + b3) = (a + b) (a2 – ab + b2)

(viii)

(ix) (x)

(a3 – b3) = (a – b) (a2 + ab + b2)

(a3 + b3 + c3 – 3abc) = (a + b + c), (a2 + b2 + c2 – ab – bc – ca) a3 + b3 + c3 = 3abc, if a + b + c = 0

**Example 1: Simplify 1005 + 500 – 10 – 80.
**

Solution. 1005 + 500 – 10 – 80 = 1005 + 490 – 80 = 1495 – 80 = 1415 Example 2: If a * b = 2(a + b), then what is the value of 5 * 2? Solution. 5 * 2 = 2(5 + 2) = 2 × 7 = 14 Example 3: If x = , then what will be the value of 3x3 – 9x? Solution. 3x3 – 9x = 3[31/3 + 3–1/3] = 3[3 + 3–1 + 3(31/3 + 3–1/3)] – 9[31/3 + 3–1/3] = =9+1 = 10
