In ISSB test interviews you may be asked some tricky maths questions by interviewers to measure your intelligence. There are some important tricks to solve maths within less time. You can remember these tricks and then perform well in ISSB test. So read these tips carefully nd try to solve by yourself.

Percentage Questions and DISCOUNT % questions

CASE 1. When % and value are in digits(1 to 9)

You have to count total n.o involve so it helps in placing decimals and then multiply it.

like 1% of 1 = 0.01

2% 0f 2 =0.04

.

.

.

9% of 9 =0.81

CASE 2 ..When % and value both are in double-digit without any zero

like…11% of 11= 1.21

12% of 12=1.44

.

.

19 % of 15 =2.85

CASE 3 …When value and % both are in double-digit having 1 zero than you cancel the zeros

like …20 % of 20=4

40 % of 30 =12

CASE 4… when % and value both are in double and triple digit and having 1 zero soo again cancel out the zeros

like ..20 % of 170=34

40% 0f 110=44

CASE 5 .when % are in digit and value are in double-digit having 1 zero soo so cancel out the zero

2% of 70=1.4

3% of 90=2.7

PLEASE GET IT

DISCOUNT % QUESTIONS

discount % = real price – discount price

E.g ……..You have bought shirt for 450 rupees and 20% is discount soo find real cost

so 20 % of 450= 90

formula real price – discount price =450 -90 =360 is your answer.

**Here are some more tricks to solve quick maths questions in ISSB.**

- What is the 30% of 30?

Solution:

Firstly you have to cancel “0” from both sides, and then multiply both sides with each other and you’ll get the answer

3 x 3 = 9

So, 9 is the answer

- What is 45% of 50?

Solution?

Now this one is a bit more complex than the previous one, but it’s easy

divide both sides by 10 and multiply them with each other, OR divide one side by 100 and multiply both sides with each other and you’ll get the answer

By first method,

4.5 x 5 = 22.5

By second method,

45 x 0.5 = 22.5

So, 22.5 is the answer

- Add ¾ and 5/4

Solution:

Since the denominators of both values are same, i.e. 4 so we’ll simply add the numerators, simplify it if possible and we’ll get the answer

3 + 5 = 8 = 1 Answer

4 4 2

- Add 4/5 and 11/3

Solution:

Now the denominators are different so we’ll take LCM, the LCM of 5 and 3 is 15

Since, 5 x 3 = 15 so we’ll multiply 4 by 3 and since, 3 x 5 = 15 so we’ll multiply 11 by 5

12 + 55 = 67 Answer

15 15

1 km = 0.62 mile

1 mile= 1.609 km

1 cm = 0.01 m

1 m = 100 cm

1 km = 1000 m

1 kg = 2.204 pounds

1 pound = 0.45 kg

1 foot = 12 inch

1 inch = 2.54 cm

1 cm = 0.39 inch

1 USD = 101.94 PKR

1 foot = 30.48 cm

1 yard = 94.44 cm

1 yard = 3 feet

1 m = 3.28 feet

1 m = 1.09 yard

1 yard = 0.91 m

1 mile = 5280 feet

3 miles = 1 league

1 kg = 1.094 seer

1 seer = 0.931 kg

1 million = 10 lac

- Calculate the Zakat in 2000rs

Solution:

To calculate Zakat of any value you have to find 2.5% of the given value

We’ll do it with the method that we’ve learned above

we’ll divide 2000 by 100 and then we’ll multiply it with 2.5

2000 = 20 x 2.5 = 50

100

So, the answer is 50

- How many millions are there in 3 lacs?

Solution:

As we know that, 1million = 10 lacs

So 3 lacs = 0.3 million

- How many km are there in 4000 m?

Solution:

As we know that, 1000m = 1km

so there are 4km in 4000m

]]>Mechanical aptitude is typically thought of as an intrinsic capacity that creates someone capable of understanding however things work. traditional tests, like the Floyd Bennett test of Mechanical Comprehension, commit to measuring mechanical power by victimization little puzzles concerning levers, pulleys, etc.

Mechanical aptitude tests measure your information of simple mechanical ideas including levers, pulleys, gears, springs, straightforward electrical circuits, and tools. If you’re taking a mechanical aptitude check for the emergency services or the military then the queries can tend to consider principles instead of on creating calculations. as an example, you’ll be shown diagrams of a lever and asked that one is the most efficient. If you’re taking a test for a craft or apprenticeship job, then you’ll expect some queries involving calculations.

**Below is an example of the Mechanical aptitude test that you have to solve in ISSB.**

The pictures shown in this test are basically sketched pictures with no colors. Different objects or characters are shown on a picture and you have to make a story out of it. This is done to assess the nature of perception of a person and is the very strong tool for psychologists. ISSB Picture Story Writing is also called Thematic Apprehension Test in the psychological term.

**Number of Pictures:**

A sum total of 4 pictures will be shown to you on the multimedia. Each picture will last for a limited period of time so that you can write down a story.

**Time:**

A single picture will be shown for 30 seconds and then more 30 seconds will be given to you to make a story out of it. After that, you will be given 3.5 minutes to write down a story. The same process will be repeated for other 3 pictures.
