Candidates must pay close attention to the quantitative aptitude part of any banking test. Many banking examinations will be held this year, and applicants should begin preparing for them now in order to acquire the jobs they want. In this article, you will learn how to solve inequality questions for Bank PO exams.

## What are Inequality Questions for Bank PO?

You will be given a statement including a group of components in these questions. These elements will have a coded relationship between them, which will be indicated by inequality symbols such as >, =, and so on.

You should be familiar with the meanings of various symbols since this will aid you in determining the link between the various components of a statement.

The link between key statements and their meaning are shown in tabular form below for your convenience.

 S.No Symbol Meaning 1. A > B A is Greater than B. 2. A < B A is Smaller than B 3. A = B A is Equals to B. 4. A ≠ B A is either greater than or smaller than B 5. A ≥  B A is Greater than or Equals to B 6. A ≤ B A is Smaller than or Equals to B

Let’s look at some test patterns that are likely to be asked.

 S.No Statement Conclusion 1. P>Q>R P>R 2. P>Q≥R 3. P≥Q>R 4. P=Q>R 5. P>Q=R 6. PR or P=R 12. P=Q≥R 13. P≥Q=R 14. P≤Q≤R PR No conclusion can be inferred 18. P≤Q>R 19. PQQ≤R 22. P≥Q

You will be able to try all of the questions in the test if you grasp the following guidelines.

### How to Solve Inequality Questions for Bank PO?

If you want to learn how to solve inequality maths questions for Bank PO, this section is for you.

When answering these kinds of questions, bear in mind the priority order.

# Priority 1: < or >

# Priority 2: ≥ or ≤

# Priority 3: =

#### Trick 1 to Solve Inequality Questions for Bank PO

There will be a conflict and hence no conclusion if both priority 1s are in opposite order (A>B>C) in a statement.

If A > B <C Then A < C = False & C > A = False.

But

If A > B >C then A > C = True, C < A = True

Example:

# Statement:  A < D > C < E > B

# Conclusions:

1) C > B   → False

2) A < E   → False

3) D > B   → False

Simply put, if these two signs are in the opposite direction, the answer is untrue.

#### Trick 2 to Solve Inequality Questions for Bank PO

There will be a conflict if both the priority 2 in a statement are in the opposite manner (A B C), and therefore there will be no conclusions.

If A ≥ B ≤C Then A ≤ C = False & C   ≥ A = False.

But

If A ≥ B ≥ C then A ≥ C = True, C ≤ A = True.

Example:

# Statement: B ≥ D ≤ A ≥ F ≤ C

# Conclusions:

1) A ≥ C → False

2) B ≤ F → False

3) D ≥ C → False

#### Trick 3 to Solve Inequality Questions for Bank PO

If you see that the declaration of order is in the wrong way, just change the sign to the other direction.

If A > B > C > D < E < F

We can say that A > B > F = C < B < A

### Preparation Tips for Beginner Aspirants

# Make a schedule or study strategy for the banking test you’re taking so you can split your time evenly and effectively across each topic.

# Arrange all of your Quant study materials so that you may get started on your preparation right away.

# Beginning with the short tricks is not a good idea. Prepare for quick tricks by first familiarising yourself with the fundamentals of all of the chapters.

# Make a list of all the formulae and essential tricks so you can quickly discover them and use them to solve problems.

# Attempting mock examinations of several banking exams is the greatest method to prepare for the Quant portion. Candidates can also take section-by-section mock exams and evaluate their results.

### Preparation Tips for Advanced Aspirants

# Get to know the test format and curriculum for the bank exam you’ll be taking. Some modifications may occur, and you should be aware of them before beginning your preparation.

# Analyze your errors to see where you’re weak and make improvements. Before the actual bank exam, practise mock exams to become familiar with your shortcomings and how to overcome them.

# Enhance your time management skills, as well as your precision and efficiency.

# Make sure you don’t make the same mistakes you’ve done in the past. At each stage, aim to outperform your previous effort.

### Time Management Tips

# Refrain from using a calculator. Avoid utilising the calculator and instead, attempt to handle this speed and computation on your own.

# Square, multiplication, sum, and division of numbers inscribed on the vehicle plate are all good exercises. Playing with numbers in this way can enhance your calculation skills, and you could learn a new method for saving time while doing the math.

# When calculating, avoid using paper and pen. Performing mental calculations would also take up more time throughout the tests.

# To enhance your speed and accuracy, take a quiz on simplification and approximation.

##### Conclusion

During the quantitative aptitude part, candidates must improve their speed along with their accuracy. The quantitative aptitude portion is not only difficult, but it also takes a long time to complete. Candidates who excel in time management will be able to achieve the highest possible score in the quantitative aptitude portion. Ensure that you follow all of the aforementioned guidelines and that you are prepared for the examinations. Do not leave any topic untouched; everything is crucial to your exam score. Continue to practise and work hard.
