In this post we will provide you with Simplification Questions for class 5 with answers which you can practice so as to improve your understanding of the topic.

We use the acronym “BODMAS” to make a mathematical equation with two or more operations simpler. The letters B, O, D, M, A, and S stand for brackets, orders (powers/indices or roots), division, multiplication, addition, and subtraction, respectively. The students can practice the various types of questions in the section below on simplifications to gain greater insight into the topic.

Simplification Questions for class 5 with Answers

Remember the below table for the correct implementation of the BODMAS rule.

Here are a few examples of simplification questions that could be appropriate for students in grade 5:

1.  12- (7 – 9 ÷ 3)

Solution: 12- (7 – 9 ÷ 3)
= 12- (7 – 3) (As per BODMAS rule first division shall be performed)
= 12-4 (Performing subtraction)
=8

2. 45 + 28 ÷ (7 – 3)

Solution: 45 +28 ÷(7 – 3)
= 45 +28 ÷(7 – 3)
= 45 +28 ÷(4) (Removing small bracket )
=45 +7 (Performing Division) =52 (Performing Addition)

3. 32– 1/2{5 + 4 – (3 + 2 – 1 + 3)}

Solution: 32– 1/2{5 + 4 – (3 + 2 – 1 + 3)}
= 32– 1/2{5 + 4 – 7}  (Removing small bracket)
= 32– 1/2{2}  (Removing curly bracket)
= 32– 1  (Performing Division) = 31 (Performing Subtraction)

4. 27 – [48- {50 – (15 – 13 – 2)}]

27 – [48- {50 – (15 – 13 – 2)}]
= 27 – [48- {50 – 0}]  (Removing small bracket)
= 27 – [48- 50]  (Removing curly bracket)
= 27 – [-2]   (Removing Square bracket) = 29 (Performing Addition)

5. 50- [18 – {14 – (15 – 4 ÷ 2 x 2)}]

= 50- [18 – {14 – (15 – 4 ÷ 2 x 2)}]  =  50- [18 – {14 – 11}]   (Removing Small bracket ) = 50- [18 – 3]   (Removing curly bracket)
=  50- 15 (Removing Square bracket)
= 35 (Performing Subtraction)

6. 62- [38 – {60 ÷ 3 – (6 – 9 ÷ 3) ÷ 3}]

= 62- [38 – {60 ÷ 3 – 3 ÷ 3}] (Removing Small bracket ) =  62- [38 – 19]   (Removing curly bracket) = 62- 19 (Removing Square bracket)
= 43 (Performing Subtraction)

7. 47- [23 – {23 – (23 – 23 – 23)}]

= 47-[23-{23-(23-23-23)}]
= 47-[23-{23-(0-23)}]
= 47-[23-{23-(-23)}]
= 47-[23-{23–23}]
= 47-[23-{23+23}]
= 47-[23-{46}]
= 47-[23-46]
= 47-[-23]
= 47–23
= 47+23
= 70

8. 4 + (1÷ 5) [{-10 x (25 – 13 – 3)} ÷ (-5)]

= 4+(1÷ 5)[{-10(25-13-3)}÷ (-5)]
= 4+(1÷ 5)[{-10(25-13-3)}÷ (-5)]
= 4+(1÷ 5)[{-10(25-13-3)}÷ (-5)]
= 4+(1÷ 5)[{-10(12-3)}÷ (-5)]
= 4+(1÷ 5)[-90÷(-5)]
= 4+(1÷5)*18
= 4+3.6
= 7.6

9. 22 – (1/4){-5 – (- 48) ÷ (-16)}

= 22-(1/4){-5-(-48)/(-16)} =
= 22-(1/4){-5+48/(-16)}
= 22-(1/4){-5-3} =
= 22-(1/4)-8 =
= 22-(-2)
= 22+2
= 24

10. 45- (-3) {-2 – 8 – 3} ÷ 3{5 + (-2) (-1)}

= 45-(-3){-2-8-3}÷ 3{5+(-2)(-1)}
= 45+3{-2-8-3}÷ 3{5+(-2)(-1)}
= 45+3{-13}{÷ 3{5+(-2)(-1)}
= 45+-39÷ 3{5+-2(-1)}
= 45+-39÷ 3{5+2} = 45+-13*7
= 45-91
= -46

11. 14*7+32/8+14

= 14*7+32/8+14
= 98+32/8+14
= 98+4+14
= 102+14
= 116

12. 30÷6+10-2 x 5

Input Equation:
= 30/6+10-25 = 5+10-25
= 5+10-10
= 15-10
Ans= 5

13.  48÷16 x 2+17 – 9

Input Equation:
= 48/162+17-9 = 32+17-9
= 6+17-9
= 23-9
= 14

14. (18+10)-(3 x 6)

= (18+10)-(36) = (28)-(36)
= 28-(3*6)
= 28-(18)
= 28-18
= 10

15. (10 x 8) ÷ (20÷5)

= (10*8)/(20/5)
= (80)/(20/5)
= 80/(20/5)
= 80/(4)
= 80/4
= 20

16. {20-(24- 10)}+7

= {20-(24-10)}+7
= {20-(14)}+7
= {20-14}+7
= {6}+7
= 6+7
= 13

17. {20+(15+5)}-5

= {20+(15+5)}-5
= {20+(20)}-5
= {20+20}-5
= {40}-5
= 40-5
= 35

18. 27 − [18 − {16 − (5 −)}]

(19.) 2[19-{7+(12÷4)}]

= 2[19-{7+(12/4)}] = 2[19-{7+(3)}]
= 2[19-{7+3}] = 2[19-{10}]
= 2[19-10] = 2[9]
= 2*9
= 18

(20.) [{(30-

)÷3} x 6+6]

What is PEDMAS?

The order or simplification of mathematical processes is known as BODMAS in India. The BODMAS regulation, however, is known as PEDMAS in various countries, such as the US (United States) or UK (United Kingdom), etc. We can reduce arithmetic problems with several mathematical operators by using the PEDMAS approach.
